In these times of dwindling hiring pools, it is important that each recruit in an FTO program be given effective training that offers every reasonable opportunity to succeed as a new officer without sacrificing the standards of the agency. Learning in the field training environment depends on both training and feedback. The FTO Development Class uses the San Jose Model of evaluation and provides the FTO the tools to be an effective one-on-one trainer and coach. The class is structured to use the participants’ own experiences to learn the principles of learning and evaluation in realistic situations. Participants learn to create and update training materials, to document performance, to recognize the trainee’s learning style and use it to expedite the training, to plan remedial training to correct deficiencies in performance and to provide critical input into retention and termination decisions.
Class is limited to 20 students. Per POST guidelines, the class is limited to four seats per agency.
The 5-Day course starts at 8:00 am each day. POST #ID0005
