Train the Trainer (Jefferson County)
The Train-the-Trainer is a POST-approved basic learning instructor methodology course that follows the POST rule to prepare instructors to teach in an academy or agency classroom or skills setting. This class does not prepare you to be an FTO. It is a highly interactive, problem-based class that includes adult learning concepts; performance objective development; preparation of professional lesson plans; an introduction to instructional methods and guidance for choosing the best ones for the subject matter; an assessment of personal teaching and learning styles; appropriate use of visual aids; and presentation skills. Students are expected to work collaboratively in a small group setting to develop and present an original presentation to the other participants, as well as several shorter individual presentations. The course is pass/fail, as required by POST, and may include written assessments and work outside of the classroom. A laptop computer will make preparation of the lesson plan easier but is not required. Time does not allow for an in-depth tutorial on PowerPoint but instructors are available to provide individual help.
