There are several coaching institutes available for candidates aspiring to enter into the Armed Forces. It is important to join the right coaching institute. While undertaking coaching, it is also important to talk to other candidates and learn from their knowledge experience. Most of these institutes offer hurdle and obstacle practices. One must take part in all these activities in order to overcome fears, such as hydrophobia, acrophobia and so on. Before joining an institute, it would be advisable to check out the past record and make a proper analysis. Here are some of the renowned institutes spread over the country providing lodging and hostel services to candidates.

1. Minerva Academy – Chandigarh

The aspirants can get specialized coaching from this institute that has created an unbeatable record for such training. It is perhaps one of the oldest and the best institutes for candidates aspiring to enter in the official level in the Army, Navy and the Air Force.

Complete training in all the tests that are conducted during the 5 day SSB interviews, consisting of both outdoor and indoor activities. This includes training for psychological tests as well as group discussions and screening tests. The Minerva Academy has run successfully for the past 55 years, being established in 1955 and has an exceptional campus that is spread over 10 acres. It is located at Daon, within Chandigarh, which is a Union Territory.

2. SSB Universal Counseling – Meerut

This institute has been offering SSB training since 2001 and covers all aspects of the SSB training, such as the examinations like NDA, CDS and so on along with preparing the aspirants for the SSB interviews. The training is given to candidates under the guidance of Lt.Col.Rajeev Devgan, who is the Group testing Officer.

The training covers NDA, OTA, the IMA and the Navy. The institute has been successful in produced great numbers of successful candidates who have joined the Armed Forces every year. The institute has two branches, one in Jaipur and the other in Delhi.

The training period usually lasts for two weeks and hostel accommodation with food is provided for candidates who enroll for the program.

5. Defense Academy – Coimbatore

Apart from the above, the other well known institutes offering SSB training are Defense Academy, Coimbatore, which has been providing training since the year 2005 offering training for SSB as well as AFCAT, RIMC, WOMBAT coaching and so on.

The SSB coaching is for ten days and they provide a self study kit as well. Accommodation and food is provided for applicants and the number of students in a batch is just 15, so that individual and personal attention can be provided to candidates.

I hope you have got a good idea about the top SSB Coaching Institutes in India. I will be doing some more research and come up with more good ones in India.

However, keep in mind that it is not necessary to attend a live training program to clear the SSB. Many people have succeeded after learning from home study programs. You may also want to check out my Home Study SSB Training Program.
