The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between training and performance of Police Advisors working with UNAMID. The study was prompted by the diverse trainings offered to army officers and yet top management has constantly complained about the performance of majority of them. The study was guided by three objectives; that is, to establish the relationship between; (1) generic, (2) mission specific and (3) in-theatre peace keeping training and performance. A cross-sectional survey research design was employed. A sample of 192 respondents participated in the study by answering the questionnaire and interview guide. Frequencies and percentages were used to show the distribution of respondents on different items. Pearson’s Linear Correlational Coefficient (r) was used to determine the level of correlation between the variables. The study findings showed that (i) generic, (ii) mission specific and (iii) in-theatre peace keeping training have a significant positive relationship with performance. The researcher concluded that there is a positive relationship between generic, mission specific and in-theatre peace keeping training and performance. The researcher therefore, recommended that police top management officers should provide relevant training opportunities to their employees to enhance performance and aim at bridging knowledge gaps that exist.
