The training in negotiating the obstacles by NCC cadets is a very important aspect of NCC curriculum. The obstacle course training not only makes the cadets physically tough but develops a very high degree of confidence and inculcates the qualities of patience and courage to face challenges. It helps the cadets in developing and promoting physical fitness, self confidence, determination and quick reflexes. For this purpose 10 obstacles were set up in college. Range firing is an important and compulsory training for all the NCC cadets. This is done so that the fear of firearms can be removed from the minds of the cadets. The art of shooting teaches precision, accuracy, co-ordination of body movements and confidence which helps to make a better person in public. Firing practice of NCC cadets is conducted in college at regular intervals.
