Training: The candidate has to undergo physical training with a routine that comprises of a lot of running and exercising. This is mainly done to make the candidates fit and healthy. The time period for training is two months. The second phase of training is mostly theoretical where seniors deliver lectures in classes to prepare the recruits mentally also. This period also continues for the next two months.

Job Posting: After the initial training, the recruit is assigned responsibilities where they get to know himself better, as they get to work in an environment, where they are going to face very tough circumstances. This prepares the recruits for the worst-case scenario. Every officer is allotted a particular district/state and is sent to that particular place. The allotment is random. Some recruits may get border areas, mainland while others might be posted to cities, towns or villages.

On the job training: Each place has its own issues like terrorism, security, Naxalism, narcotics, goons, etc. Every recruit is expected to create his/her work profile of the place he/she is posted to and to analyse the ongoing or any other possible threats that can prove to be harmful to that particular place and to work on them. Each recruit will be working under the guidance of a mentor who will lead them thoroughly on how to work under such conditions.

Spontaneity and Risk Handling:  Being an ACIO, the risk is always going to follow the recruit wherever he/she may go. They need to act spontaneously to the situation and handle it wisely or the situation may pose a threat to their well-being. The recruits need to have social skills, must be alert at all times of the operation. They must know how to manage or overcome any possible danger that can be hazardous to society or themselves. As per safety issue, your physical safety is their prime concern and even if you are posted in tensed area in North-East or Kashmir a team is always there for your physical safety. IB officer is not on any front; their job is to collect input from their sources, which can be done even sitting in the office. While being in such a job you need to forget about privacy. Whatever the rules and protocols are there, one should follow properly and the way it is instructed. Needless to say, you will also be in their eyes and monitor. This is done to avoid defections and breach.
