THE SCREENING PROCESS

 

After the initial application online, qualified candidate’s receive a text message indicating viability to continue with the rest of the process, the following stages follow:

1.     Documentation

Successful applicants are invited to a central point on a particular day by a mass text message to present all relevant personal and academic certificates. These are subjected to physical inspection to verify authenticity and correlation to initial data entered while applying.  Applicants should note that; any form of falsehood detected in credentials presented, shall be treated with all manner of punitive measures.

2.      Body Selection

Candidates who make it through documentation are further invited for a full body inspection on a communicated date to ascertain the desired figure and physique per the Ghana Armed Forces standards. Key inspections are made to ensure absence of tattoos and flat foot, excessive body building, double ear pierces for females and exposed varicose veins, amongst others.

3.       Aptitude Test

Candidates at this level, are tested on very basic but tactful sets of questions in an exam environment. This is to test the   mental prowess and logical reasoning of the candidate and how to deal with basic everyday problems within a given time.

4.       Outdoor Leaderless Test (OLT)

Successful candidates who make it to this stage are grouped into syndicates of 10, with the aim of testing their convincing levels to appeal for support as a team player, conceiving valid thoughts to solve a team problem with agility and speed. Syndicates are scored on how well they perform the given task as a team. OLT involves some amount of physical work and candidates must train on their own to attain an appreciable level of fitness.

5.        Medical Examination 

Candidates at this stage go through an intense medical screening at the 37 Military Hospital at a fee. Every part of the body of the candidate is examined for total fitness per Ghana Armed Forces standard. Results of the medical examination determines whether a candidates makes it to the final stage or not.

6.         Interview

This is the final stage of the Screening process and here candidates meet a panel of Senior Military Officers who probe the candidate with questions in an effort to identify whether the candidate is satisfactory and well prepared for the Ghana Military Academy. The Potential Cadet is quizzed on economic, social, political and ethical areas related to the selected Arm of service. The candidate must exhibit maximum confidence at this stage and be very meticulous in his/her vocal submission’s to the panel.

Candidates (Potential Cadets) who go through all these stages successfully will be informed after the final selection has been made and will receive the Joining Instructions as well as the reporting date to the Ghana Military Academy.

TRAINING OVERVIEW AS AN OFFICER CADET

 

The training stretches across a maximum period of 18 months for regular career course (RCC) officer cadets and 6 months for the short service and special duties commission (SSC/SD) officer cadets. The Regular Career Course consists of four (4) terms, with each geared towards a particular objective. There are intermittent vacation breaks only for RCC officer cadets. Term One (1) and Two (2) consists of Basic Military Training known as the Standard Military Course (SMC) Phase, this phase consists of both physical and academic courses such as:

  • Physical Training
  • Map Reading and Navigation
  • Administration and Morale
  • Tactics
  • Fundamental Officer Training
  • Ranks and Insignia
  • Skill at Arms
  • Military Law
  • Signals and Voice Procedure

Term Three (3) and Four (4) are known as the Regular Career Course (RCC) phase, and here cadets are taught on the detailed and Arm specific training. This phase is a buildup on what was done in the Standard Military Course phase. It is therefore important for cadets not to forget anything that was taught in the Standard Military Course phase. A few additions will be made to the courses in the Standard Military Course. Some of the courses are:

  • Leadership
  • International Affairs and War Studies
  • Presentation Skills
  • Psychology
  • Administration and Morale
  • Tactics
  • French
  • Military History
  • Military Law

It is essential for a cadet to pass every subject in order to continue with the training at a pass mark of 60% or better for every term

Once a potential cadet enters the Ghana Military Academy for training, there are so many things he/she should prepare for. Life in academy is very different, strenuous and fast moving, it is only a sense of purpose that keeps you going at most times. Regardless of the pressure and high demands of the cadet lines (training accommodation unit), a cadet is expected to exhibit enthusiasm and take close interest in the standards stated below;

General Physical Fitness (The fitness of every cadet will be extremely tested in an effort to ensure that only fit Officers are churned out into the Ghana Armed Forces).

Alertness and mental robustness (Cadets are required to be alert at all times and pay proper attention to little details during their dealings in the Academy)

Personal Hygiene and Turnout (Cadets must thrive to look smart always, regardless of what is been done at any point in time. Attention must also be paid to ones hygiene and wellbeing to avoid sickness and avoidable infections).

Leadership (Cadets will be given various leadership roles to help develop their leadership abilities).

Mental and Physical Endurance (Cadets will go through various exercises to test and develop their ability to endure discomfort and think rationally under extreme conditions during the training).

Time Management (Cadets must be able to manage their time efficiently in order to achieve and make specific timings within the walls of the Academy and this demands full concentration).

An Officer cadet is always guarded by the words of the Ghana Military Academy Creed coined by the Intake 55 in 2015.
