Course Description: This course is for law enforcement officers who are or will be assigned to provide field training to new officers. The focus of this course is for patrol officers. The Field Training Program is intended to facilitate a law enforcement officer's transition from the academic setting or custody assignment to the performance of general law enforcement uniformed patrol duties of the employing agency. Although an officer graduating from the Basic Law Enforcement Training academy has received thorough instruction on basic law enforcement subjects, that officer cannot be expected to immediately assume the full responsibilities of an experienced officer.

Course Goals: To provide the technical and personal skills to individuals in order for them to function as evaluators and trainers of recruits who have completed Basic Law Enforcement Training.

Course Objectives: The student will be able to: - Objectively evaluate the performances of trainees. - Utilize performance feedback, counseling and training skills in the interaction with trainees. - Successfully utilize leadership skills and attributes. - Evaluate and counsel trainees in report writing and note-taking skills.
