MACC Committed In Polishing Officers Capabilities, Skills
Its chief commissioner, Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Academy (MACA) had developed training models that met high standard and benchmarks in an effort to produce professional officers to suit current needs and requirements.
"Training models created by MACA are of high standard and benchmarks in line with the UN Office on Drugs and Crime's (UNODC) recognition in view of the MACC compliance of the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC)," he said at the passing out parade of 27 MACC cadet officers (assistant superintendents Grade P29) here Thursday.
Following its recognition as an international training provider, he said MACA, which was set up in 2005, had extended its basic training module of between three and six months to 12 months to include training on the job and psychology.
He said the first phase of the training entailed a five-month session broken into three main programmes, namely academic (60 per cent), ethic enhancement (25 per cent), and skills and physical (15 per cent).
In the academic programme, the cadets are required to take four modules, namely mind transformation and general administration; law and courts; intelligence; and investigations.
The strengthening of values and ethics programme entails teambuilding; Tauhidik (religious values); character building; 'My Promise' and noble values; and basic anti-corruption awareness programme (B-CAP1).
In Phase II, the cadets have to undergo three main programmes for seven months, namely mentoring and enhancement module (six months) and overall assessment module (one month).
The mentoring programme is divided into three main categories; mentor and mentee placement, KPI (key performance indicators) assignments (input and output), and overall mentoring programme evaluation report.
The 27 commissioned assistant superintendents, including 16 women, were the first batch of MACC officers who were put through their paces under the revamped training programme.
Abu Kassim later presented the MACC Chief Commissioner Award (best overall cadet) to Asst Supt Mohd Idrus Nazri, MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner Award (management and professionalism) to B. Malani Devi, MACA Director Award (best academic cadet) to Mohd Ihsan Sapuan, MACC Commandant Award (men's best outdoor training cadet) to Adika Azwan Zailan, and MACC Commandant Award (women's best outdoor cadet) to Nurmila Awang.
