ABSTRACT

This research is on the theme “using simulation-based training approach to improve the marksmanship skills of recruits at the Prisons officers Training School”. Thirty (30) general duties officers and twenty (20) tradesmen formed the study sample. The study employed action research design. Simple random sampling and purposive sampling techniques were used. Data obtained through questionnaire, were analysed with the help the IBM SPSS version 20 of using descriptive statistics (average score). Data obtained through interviews were recorded and transcribed to support related ideas. The findings of the research revealed that, most of the recruits could not demonstrate the required marksmanship skills before the intervention. After the intervention it was found out that simulation-based training approach seem to be a better strategy for training marksmanship skills. It was concluded that, simulation-based training approach is an effective professional development exercise since it improved significantly the marksmanship skills of the officers. Finally, it was recommended that, the Prisons Service authorities should provide the Training School with logistics needed for effective simulation-based training.
