NAFTO, in conjunction with the Sandy Police Department, is proud to offer our newest course, Beyond the Basics of Field Training, in Sandy UT, a 25-minute drive from Salt Lake City International Airport. This training is designed for experienced Field Training Officers in Patrol, Detention, Communications, and Support Services, as well as Field Training Sergeants, Coordinators, and Administrators.

Beyond the Basics of FTO Course

Created specifically to address the needs of experienced FTO’s, this class will re-energize and focus Field Training Officers that have experience training and evaluating trainees in the fields of Patrol, Corrections, and Communications. This course is not designed as a basic certification, but offers advanced remedial training techniques, insight into human behavior, discussions on leadership vs management, the FTO’s role on socialization and the importance of proper documentation.
Going even further beyond the basics of Field Training, this two-day course will also provide insight on the various concepts and methodologies surrounding the idea of managing an FTO program. How can the FTO or the unit manager have influence over program productivity and efficiency? In what way can the FTO improve upon their own performance? How crucial is the culture of your FTO program to department-wide ethics? How can you tie up loose ends in the realm of liability to avoid costly lawsuits? Day 2 of this advanced class will offer answers to these questions and give the student a glimpse into managing the FTO and the FTO program.
This class covers such topics as Generational Leadership, Standardizing Evaluation Guidelines, Adult Learning, and Ethics. Each block of study is directed at the trainer, and ways to improve their teaching, work product, and approach to today’s Officer In Training. Information includes motivating different generations of trainees, career survival for the FTO, and case law review pertaining to evaluations.

Seating limited to the 1st 45 applicants, no exceptions. This class will sell out and it will sell out quickly.
