Course Objectives

Course Objectives:

The Field Training Officer program is a nationally recognized system of training that has been adopted by many departments across the nation, and the FTO is the key component to retaining competent and committed officers.

Participants will better understand how FTOs can enhance community policing and preparation for homeland security. The course explains the FTO’s value to the department’s success, the role of leadership, innovative theories of understanding people and behavior, and practical strategies for addressing common challenges.

Upon Completion:

Participants will be able to:
  • Describe the importance of the department’s mission and vision
  • Explain their role and job function within the department
  • Use emotional intelligence and leadership ethics
