Basic Field Training Officer

Field Training Officers train and evaluate career candidates in preparation for solo duty in law enforcement, corrections, EMS, and communications.  Our Basic 3 day school will provide the new FTO with the tools necessary to train and evaluate career candidates during the field training process.

This 24 hour class covers such topics as Intro to FTO, Adult Learning, Generational Leadership, Standardized Evaluations Guidelines, Ethics, Equal Opportunity Employment, Civil Liability, and Officer Safety.  Built on a foundation of Generational Communication and Leadership, each block of study is directed at the Field Trainer and ways to improve their teaching, work product, and approach to today’s new Officer in Training.  Information includes motivating different generations of trainees, career survival for the FTO, liability pertaining to evaluations, as well as 21st Century Policing and CALEA standards and expectations.
