Our 8-hour Instructor Development course was designed to prepare participants to teach to a range of students varying from those new in their career to those more tenured. We will discuss the role of the instructor, principles of learning, training liability, the use of learning aides, communication, lesson plan development, methods of instruction, and testing & evaluation. Curriculum will include short speeches given to the class. A certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of the course.
8-Hour Instructors Course
Prerequisite: Core Essentials (CDT and Power Handcuffing) or Board Member Exception*
* Note: Core Essentials is recommended as it has instructor development aspects to it as well as fundamental 'core' techniques, stances and other aspects that are within every single NLETC course. For course cohesion, understanding things such as power stance, force efficiency and other concepts which are taught in Core Essentials allows us to decrease instructor certification times within other courses. Should instructors wish to not take Core Essentials and take other elective courses such as Handgun Long Gun Retention and Disarming, the course may need to be longer than the standard 8-hour course. A Training Board Member will need to handle these on a case by case basis.
