By mid 2012, over 40,000 division chiefs will have been through the Party’s training to become the future backbones of the Party. From July to October 2010, middle-aged and young Party cadres completed four sessions. Most of the trainees were born in the 1960s and 70s. The training campaign started in March 2009, and over 12,000 have been trained by the Party so far. The courses place a priority on glorifying the Party’s traditions and history. For example, on September 11, 2010, 112 division chiefs wore uniforms and hats of the old Red Army and walked part of the path that the Red Army once traveled.
