Prerequisite: Three years of public safety experience. Students must not have any active P.O.S.T. Investigations, or be in probationary status with P.O.S.T.

This course is designed for the public safety officer who instructs in performance oriented training and is responsible for lesson plan development. Topics range from instructor liability and lesson plan design, to testing and evaluation of learning. During the course, each student writes an original lesson plan on an approved public safety topic and develops the presentation skills necessary to deliver that lesson.
