The Field Training Officer is the lynchpin for any agency to develop and to retain competent and professional officers. Field Training Officers are many times overlooked in criminal justice agencies.
This cutting edge 40-hour course is the first in the nation to be presented specifically for 21st century field training officers. We will use an innovative approach to deliver a dynamic, accelerated, hard-hitting and fast-paced classroom experience that will prepare you to successfully train and mentor new recruit or lateral officers.
The course targets trainers engaged in training those who have recently completed the Basic Police Academy or Refresher Training. This program can be adapted for Corrections staff and Telecommunicators and others. Classe size is limited. We will also provide you with the information you need to make valuable improvements to your agency’s existing program.
Audience: This course is designed for all categories of law enforcement officers at the local to federal levels. Often overlooked niche policing agencies such as university police, harbor police, railroad police, marshals, court security, state officers, wildlife officers and law enforcement rangers; officers who conduct on-the-job field training of newly hired recruit officers; shift sergeants and corporals responsible for the daily supervision of FTOs and their trainees; watch commanders unfamiliar with FTO program processes; patrol managers; and agency training officers.
Training Standard: This class meets the requirements set forth in the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement Recommendations, exceeds the requirements of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), and the National Association of Field Training Officers (NAFTO).
