- Officers' Training School
- (OTS)One of Burma's two main institutions for training commissioned officers, the other being the Defence Services Academy. Established in 1948, it is located in Bahtoo. Since 1988, most OTS cadets have been university graduates, with a smaller number of noncommissioned officers without college degrees. The course lasts for nine months, and almost all graduates receive commissions from the Army. Prominent OTS graduates have included Senior General Than Shwe and former SPDC Secretary-1 and prime minister Khin Nyunt.See also Tatmadaw.
