Our San Jose-based field training officer course prepares newly appointed FTOs for the important and challenging role they have in shaping the future of today’s modern law-enforcement agencies.
This course develops FTOs to be the best trainers possible. It focuses on how to teach, how to coach, how to address training problems, and how to evaluate performance. Upon completion of the three-day classroom portion of this course, participants will return to their agencies for an orientation to the field-training program used by their agency. Your FTO coordinator, using our guide, will instruct the participants in the format, forms, timeline, capabilities and limitations of your particular program.
No matter what field-training program your agency uses, this course will meet your FTO-developmental needs
