Course Description

Designed for Field Training Officers who have attended the 40-hour FTO course and need to attend a POST FTO Update course.

This course was updated this year by POST and will review the concept and structure of a Field Training Program in law enforcement. Subjects will include; Goals of a FTO program, Ethics, Coaching, Teaching/Training demonstrations, Evaluations, Driver Safety Issues, Intervention Techniques, Remediation, Documentations and other issues related to the FTO environment.

All instructors in the course are experienced training officers or supervisors who currently work in public safety agencies. The instructors are from police and sheriff’s departments that work metropolitan, rural and sparsely populated communities, which give a broader perspective of law enforcement training methods. This perspective gives the student the knowledge of working single or two-officer patrol units. All of the training will build upon a strong ethical foundation emphasizing responsibility for both the trainee and the training officer.

The goal of the course is to ensure the students attending will have a up to date working knowledge of the POST FTO system.

Prerequisites

  • A California Peace Officer Standards and Training Basic Course certificate issued from an accredited regional police academy or equivalent as determined by the division Dean or their appointee. These skills and knowledge base are related to adopted POST and/or industry standards. Note: Approval of equivalent training is not a guarantee state regulatory or licensing agencies will also grant equivalency.
  • Have completed the POST 40-hour FTO Basic Course.
