Only insofar as leading them in battle. For training purposes? No.

Also there's a difference between Imperial Commissars and plantary bodies that create commissariat-like bodies.

In Necropolis a local commissariat tries to try some Imperial Guardsman, but Gaunt tells them to screw off:

"Imperial Commissariat edict 437b states that any activity concerning the disipline of the Imperial Guardsmen must be conducted by the Imperial Commissariat itself. Not by planetary bodies."

The Commissariat is separate and above the Guard (which itself is set above the PDF). The Commissariat doesn't't have to play nice.
