I'd finished talking about the bridge officer test and was answering a point about command training. Worf wasn't required to have any, so obviously any and all command training is done while cadets are still at the academy. So with the bridge officer training being for non-bridge officers only Kirk would never have needed to go back to academy after his graduation.
