This is a presentation I provided for IADLEST in their instructor development webinar series. But this instructor guide concept applies to any industry. You cannot hold your personnel accountable if your training doesn’t have consistency, continuity, and accountability. Here is the description for the webinar:
Law enforcement instruction is under tremendous pressure – both socially and legally. The old days of relying on “self-as-expert” based on our “training and experience” is no longer sufficient. We have seen the results of training that wasn’t developed as well as it should have been, but there hasn’t been much done for bringing training development into the current age of learning and development as used in corporate America.
Learning and development, and the training it produces, requires three things that are in total alignment with the needs of law enforcement – continuity, consistency, and accountability. Even today, the bulk of training developed in law enforcement amounts to outlines of bullet points. The problem is that the further away from detailed training materials one gets, the more inconsistent it is deployed, the more open to liability an agency and instructors may become. In this webinar, we will define continuity, consistency, and accountability, and discuss the key items that must exist in an instructor’s guide to create a more regimented and defensible training product.
