The article deals with the process of creation and features of the three-month technical training courses for telegraph mechanics, car mechanics and electricians in the Kalish camp. The initiator of their founding was inspector of the technical troops of the UPR Colonel O.Kozma, who developed a temporary provision on their activities and concluded a plan of employment, and it was through his persevering efforts that it became possible to begin the work of the mentioned courses from 1 September 1921. Active assistance to the courses was provided by the campus of the American charitable organization YMCA, which provided teachers and students with various accessories. Course lecturers were taught lectures in physics, chemistry, mechanics and electrical engineering; on the practical classes they studied the main types of communication. In December 1921, due to increased training load, it was possible to reorganize the technical courses at the Military Electrical School, the final exams in which only 10 people succeeded. In addition, about 80 interned received in it initial technical knowledge, thereby increasing their potential in the future of their employment in Poland.
