According to one of the training participants, Dydan Muhammad Al-Basith, he discovered a new perspective, especially regarding the implementation of leadership values in state defense and insight of nationality.

“It was delightful to take part in this training since it broadens our perspective, and it also gave tips and tricks to implement Pancasila values in our everyday life,” said the student of AKKPP.

The training commenced with the opening ceremony, forest trail, leadership theory, insight of nationality, night messenger, holy reflection, drill commands, waterfall hiking, and closing ceremony.
