Advanced Field Training Officer Course

September 14, 2023 - September 15, 2023


This two-day course is designed to enhance the communication, teaching, and documentation skills of current Field Training Officers (FTOs) or department FTO coordinators. The importance of effective training and thorough documentation cannot be overstated in today’s litigious society, particularly when it comes to the crucial role of FTOs in training new officers and minimizing the risk of negligent retention. Through lectures, group discussions, and interactive exercises, participants will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and skills in these areas and become more effective in their roles as trainers and mentors. This course is an invaluable resource for those committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and excellence in their departments.

The course is certified by the Southeastern FTO Association (SEFTOA).
