Course Objectives
Course Overview:
Date: October 24 , 2022
Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm (Eastern Time)

Many Field Training Officers struggle when their recruit doesn't respond as expected. As issues arise they fall back on the tried and true techniques for solving the problems, but when those also fail we tend to throw our hands up and walk away, leaving the recruit to "figure it out" on their own. By understanding six simple roadblocks that can get in the way of learning we can dramatically improve our overall training program.
This webinar will describe the six roadblocks of learning and show you how to get your recruits around those obstacles.
