Have daily observation reports and checklists placed too much of an emphasis on evaluation?  

Are FTO’s focusing more on checklists than training?  

This 2 hour webinar will focus on putting the “T” back in Field TRAINING officer.  It has been argued no more important title or rank exist in any law enforcement organization than that of a Field Training Officer.  Evaluation is certainly a key component of any successful FTO program, but the training component should be just as important. The following topics will be discussed:

  • Starting with why – Exploring common FTO pitfalls of placing more emphasis on “how” to do things rather than “why” we do things.
  • Placing too much emphasis on the daily observation report / evaluation during the shift.
  • The expectation of perfection vs. progression.  
  • Embracing the trainer role.

This webinar is well suited for command staff, supervisors, and current and potential FTO’s.  Actual case studies will be discussed to bolster the learning objectives.
