A three-week Refresher Course and Promotional Examination (PROMEX) for junior officers of the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has opened at its training school (ISTS) in Assin Fosu.
A total of 110 junior officers due for promotion are expected to update their knowledge and skills in migration management, immigration law and paramilitary idiosyncrasies, among others. The junior officers comprise 53 Senior Inspectors, 34 Inspectors and 23 Assistant Inspectors.
Addressing participants at the opening of the PROMEX, the immediate-past Commanding Officer of the Immigration Service Training School (ISTS), Superintendent of Immigration Felix Agyeman-Bosompem urged the service personnel to avail themselves to be imbued with modern-day techniques in border management and adhere to the tenets of their career in fulfilment of the mandate of the service.
He admonished them to put into practice the knowledge they would acquire to enhance the peace and security the country was already enjoying. He encouraged them to be vigilant, tactful and exhibit a high sense of professionalism in the discharge of their duties. “We cannot afford to let down our countrymen and women,” he added.
