Field Training Officer Course

Dolan Consulting Group provides police leadership and liability courses for Field Training Officers in webinar, live-stream or in-person format. Our courses provide attendees with the knowledge necessary to understand the role of FTOs as supervisors, teachers and evaluators during the probationary period.

The Field Training Officer courses from DCG help law enforcement leaders in honing the skills necessary to closely supervise probationary officers, provide corrective feedback and document any fundamental performance issues before the transition to full-time officer and the legal protections that comes with it. This course gives FTOs a comprehensive view of managing newly recruited officers – combining proactive leadership principles with practical and relevant training techniques for implementation within your agency’s FTO program.

This training is relevant for new and current police leaders that are involved in the process of supervising probationary officers and field training programs.
