Eddie Chan

As a law enforcement professional, you deserve to attend training courses taught by experts in the field. What worked 20 years ago may no longer be relevant, and you deserve an instructor who understand the modern challenges that cops face.

Eddie is a current Sergeant with the San Jose Police Department in California. Not only is San Jose the birthplace of the FTO concept, it’s also a big department that cycles a lot of recruits through the program. Eddie has spent the last 12 years as an FTO Supervisor, so he has seen nearly every issue before. One of the things our FTO students like best about Eddie is that he gives them specific and practical tools that really work.

Eddie has over 29 years of law enforcement experience and has worked assignments in FTO, Motors, SWAT, and Air Support. In 2022, Eddie was awarded the medal of valor for making entry and leading a contact team into a massive active shooting incident at the VTA transportation facility in San Jose, CA.

Eddie started his career with the much smaller Milpitas Police Department (CA) in 1994 before joining San Jose PD in 2001. That means that no matter if you are from a small or large agency, Eddie can provide you with the training strategies that will work in your situation.

As an instructor for all our Field Training Officer courses, Eddie is helping our students maximize their performance and become expert trainers.

Eddie teaches our FTO, FTO Update, and Field Training Program Supervisor courses. He also consults with agencies who are looking to turn their field training program into an effective training system. Eddie has consulted with agencies just like your in projects big and small. Whether you need a quick custom training course for your FTOs to develop their teaching and remediating skills or your whole program needs and overhaul, our team has done it before and is ready to help you do the same.
