Train The Trainer (T5)

Law Enforcement Tactical Tracker Train The Trainer (T5)

As seen here, TTOS programs and instruction by our subject matter experts has resulted in many students taking the next step toward mastery of the skill – teaching it.  Gold standard adult learning concepts tell us that the quickest path toward mastery of a skill is to teach it, which is why instructors use “teach-backs” as a learning tool

Since our “Legacy” programs (1994-2012) were such a great vehicle for students to become instructors from, this is the same program attendees of our trainer courses will take home with them.  Each attendee of our trainer courses can act as unit trainers for their respective organizations and take with them an entire instructional package, including our legacy programs of instruction.
