Field Training Officer

NLETC reserves the right to limit the number of attendees from any one agency. This is to provide equitable training throughout the state.

The Basic Field Training Officer course is a 40 hour course specifically designed for experienced officers who will be serving as Field Training Officers for the agency. The class will use an innovative approach to deliver a dynamic classroom experience that will prepare the officer to successfully train and mentor new officers to the agency. Using the San Jose Model as its core, this course features the "best practice" legally defendable evaluation process that is being used in public safety agencies across the country. The prospective Field Training Officer will be exposed to the benefits of using the Field Training and Evaluation Program during a new employee's training and the specific roles of the Field Training Officer will be presented and discussed. Trainee documentation and legally defendable standardized evaluation procedures will be instructed through discussion and practical exercises. The Field Training Officer will learn about the program's structure and how to modify it specifically for your agency. Remedial training action plans will be developed to address the trainee's performance weaknesses, along with the Field Training Officer's responsibilities as it relates to the training. Materials will be provided with the information needed to make valuable improvements to your agency's existing program.

Topic Include:

  • Basic FTO program concepts and philosophies
  • Documenting your trainee during the shift
  • FTO program documentation
  • Training strategies and Remedial Training
  • The basic FTO program structure and how to make modifications
  • Preparing your trainee for the FTO program
  • Trainee responsibilities during the FTO program
  • Adult learning, memory and how stress impacts your trainee's performance
  • Things you must know about FTO program-related legal issues
  • The recruit training checklist
  • The daily observation report and rating scale application
  • Ethical and Burnout dilemmas facing all FTOs

Audience: This course is designed for all categories of sworn law enforcement and officers who conduct on-the-job training of newly hired officers; shift supervisors responsible for the daily supervision of FTOs and their trainees; watch commanders unfamiliar with FTO program processes; agency training officers; FTO program managers who have not attended the basic Field Training Officer course and FTOs whose basic FTO training was more than the "gold standard" of five years ago.

Patrol Rifle Instructor Recertification

Click here to register: NLETC Forms Page (Scroll down to the Enrollment Form for Specialized Training)

NLETC reserves the right to limit the number of attendees from any one agency. This is to provide equitable training throughout the state.

Students are responsible for lodging ($25.00 per night double occupancy) and meals.

Course Description:  This course is designed to recertify State of Nebraska Patrol Rifle Instructors and provide updated information.

Course Content:  Information regarding the recertification course will be emailed to the students. Make sure to read all the attachments that are sent with the acceptance letters.  Students will shoot their weapon system as you deploy it on duty, meaning, have any type of optic mounted on the rifle, you may shoot the course with that optic on the weapon.

For this course, you will receive the power point attached in the acceptance letter email. Study this material as there will be minimal in class power point instruction prior to the written test.  Be prepared to take the written exam.  Develop a shooting drill of your choice and be prepared to present it and run the firing line while the group shoots your course of fire.

I highly encourage you to practice the qualification course prior to arriving.  The qualification course is listed on the NLETC website.

Requirements for Certification:  Students must achieve a 90% score on the Nebraska Patrol Rifle Instructor Recertification Pre-Qualification course to get into the class.  This will be shot on the standard NLETC Q target.  If you do not pass the pre-qual, you will not be allowed to continue with the class. 

Students must pass the instructor qualification course of fire with a score of 90% inside of the modified hit zone of the NLETC Instructor Q target.  You will have 3 attempts to successfully pass the instructor qualification.  Students must also pass the written examination with a score of 80%.

If you are unable to successfully complete the any part of the instructor recertification, you will be allowed to sign up for another posted recertification course in the same calendar year to maintain your instructor certification. The only exception to this would be, if you have signed up for the LAST posted recertification course of the calendar year. If you have signed up and fail to successfully complete the last posted recertification course of the calendar year, you will be required to complete the entire instructor course over to receive your instructor certification. The number of recertification courses you may attend in a calendar year will only be dictated by the number of recertification courses posted for training or priority given to those that have not attended a recertification yet.

If you have any questions about the course, equipment, or protocols, please contact me via phone or email.
