The Basic Field Training Officer Certification course will introduce the trainer to the concepts of problem-based learning while developing facilitation, leadership, and coaching skills under the San Jose Field Training and Evaluation Program model (FTEP). MTS instructor-led training promotes adult learning principles and varied individual-based training approaches designed to maximize valuable field training time, overcome training challenges, and allow the trainee to learn at the appropriate individual pace.
This course involves student activities designed to develop critical leadership, interpersonal and coaching skills needed to work in stressful one-on-one field training environments. Throughout the week, the trainer will be exposed to program history associated with the San Jose model, as well as requirements and roles associated with field training, documentation and related legal matters. Activities will support problem-based learning, facilitation, self-assessment, critical-thinking, and problem solving supported by general coaching strategies.
