WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 

For experienced FTOs who have been trained in a basic course.

 

COURSE CONTENT: 

  • Problem- and scenario-based training. This block presents two training methods that are well suited to the field training process, and should be in every FTO’s toolkit.
  • DISC Personality Profile. Attendees will take the DISC Personality Profile in order to understand the impact of personality has on communication and evaluation.
  • DOJ recommendations for FTOs. The U.S. Department of Justice has made several recommendations relative to field training in recent consent decrees. Many of these learning objectives are consistent with learning research, and will be discussed in class.

—Learning preferences. Participants will take an assessment to determine how their brain best receives new information. More important, participants will learn how to adapt lessons to the learning preference of the recruit.

—Generational differences. The generation now entering the workforce requires a new approach. Learn more about the upcoming generation and the learning environment they seek.

  • Evaluation. We’ll evaluate case law to learn what the courts want from field training evaluation. We also put FTOs through calibration exercises to demonstrate the value of well-written definitions and behavioral anchors.
