Below is a free, 50-second video demonstration of the Field Training Officer Interactive online course.
Field Training Officer Interactive is a cutting-edge online course that provides comprehensive and concrete guidance on how to effectively perform the job of a field training officer (FTO). Extensively field-tested, the approach presented in this course has been used by the authors since 1998 and has helped train EMTs and paramedics in college, hospital, fire department, and third service programs. Experienced FTOs will find a variety of tips and techniques to supplement teaching methods they are already using. New FTOs can use these same tips and techniques to develop an effective approach to teaching and evaluating students, and will help them “hit the ground running” as they assume their new duties.
