Most of the ICT training delivery at LBSNAA is managed through the in-house NICTU Faculty. The NICTU Labs are equipped with latest machines, on the premise and on the cloud, managed by the experienced faculty of NIC. It also has the necessary resources like the relevant use cases, project assignments, software and gadgets for providing immersive experience and hands-on skilling.  The diversity and variety of ICT topics are also covered through lectures-cum-demonstrations by invited guest speakers from within the services as well as from the leading organisations of national and international repute.

The skilling of the Officer Trainees/ probationers and participants of the training programmes of LBSNAA, and the exposure given to them spans a vast spectrum of ICT and its applications. The purpose is to equip them with adequate knowledge and skills to take necessary action and appropriate decisions during their field-level postings, particularly in managing SMART cities, supply chain management and disaster management.
