It also enhances training, regardless of what model you’re using, it’s guaranteed to excel your training officers to a higher level. Training officers will leave with the tools to train essential skills that are frequently not taught in basic FTO curriculum.

  2. To teach a new way of providing feedback that breaks with traditional feedback models and has been proven to increase human performance.
  3. To provide the tools to train officers in essential skills that are frequently not taught in basic academy curriculum.

This course is constantly evolving, incorporating current events and relevant supporting material that meet the professional needs of Law Enforcement. During this dynamic and entertaining seminar, participants will discuss and learn (but not be limited to) the following:
