Public Safety Dispatcher Instructor Development Course

POST has developed a specialized dispatcher-centered instructor development course which is designed to blend an Instructor Development Institute (IDI)–compatible Basic Course with the development of mini-course (four- to eight-hour) instructional packages which can be used for the delivery of in-service Continuing Professional Training (CPT) courses to communications personnel. This instructor development program also fully satisfies the prevailing POST Academy Instructor Certification Course (AICC) standards for individuals who may be teaching subjects such as information systems within a regular peace officer basic course.

The course is structured into two distinct parts: a 40-hour initial week, followed four to six weeks later by a two-day session which encapsulates lesson planning and instructional resource development with individual instructional competency verifications. Participants work as part of a team and will be assigned to a topical area which meets an expressed in-service training need.
