Your agency on average spends $100K to hire a new officer and get them through the field training program. But how much thought has been put into the training your FTOs receive? We designed a new modern FTO Update course that guarantees your FTOs will learn the best methods to Teach, Evaluate and Document. Come see why our FTO courses receive 100% positive reviews.

This experience is unlike any other FTO Update course. This is a modern approach to how adults like to learn (No Power Point is used in this course!). Our course is taught by expert level instructors who guarantee your FTOs will leave with a new set of skills, each designed to help them teach and mentor a trainee or lateral officer through the FTO program.

POST requires your FTOs to attend a 24-hour update course every three years. Give your FTOs the best training available and register them today.

Please have each student bring a laptop computer and a portable USB drive.
