Training period groups



The four-week training period at the Lapinjärvi Educational Centre is meant to support general citizenship skills as well as to make carrying out the rest of the non-military service easier.

There are several groups into which the attendees are divided into, the groups themselves have different direction of focus and schedules with also several lecture series all together, which includes first aid training and history of conscientious objection in Finland.

The groups themselves range in focus from cultural and environmental protection, study of violence from a preventative standpoint, rescue and civil defense, to general citizenship skills.

All groups will be given a first aid training certificate with sufficient attendance, and some will receive fire safety and security training certificates.
