Here’s what cops are saying about Field Training Solutions.

FTO Basic Online

“I think this course was well put together. My partners have also said your course is awesome. The points you made and you the content that went with your points were all relevant and well thought out. The group sessions were good. They were timed well and not overly long, and they were to the point. With the challenge of COVID-19 it is clear that the course can still be taught remotely and taught well. 10 out of 10.
— Officer Andrew Lehmkuhl, Waite Park Police Department
“This was my first actual virtual classroom that was live and not a recorded, take at your leisure, class. I was extremely impressed by how well the class worked and how easy the virtual side of it went. I don’t feel that I would have gotten any more out of the class if it was in a physical classroom and if I had the option to take it again in the future I would request the online version. The ability to break into groups, instant message questions to you or anyone else in class, or just speak via video worked very well and actually provided more avenues for communication that if we had been in person. I could see that as the class moved along people got more comfortable with the platform and participated more often. Thank you for the class and doing what needed to be done to get us the training we required.”
— Deputy Wade Schultz, Cass County Sheriff’s Office
I thought the online class went great. I thought at first that it might get tough just sitting staring at a computer screen, but everything seemed to go pretty well. I thought we were able to convey questions in a timely matter and everyone was able to get their voice heard if they wanted to. I had dual screens which I thought made it an even better experience so I could watch the class at the same time and feel like I wasn’t the only one there.”
— Deputy Jacob Stueber, Brown County Sheriff’s Office
“I really enjoyed the course. The online format made it so much easier for me to attend the class living in Iowa. It was great still being able to work in small groups even online. It was very easy to get onto Zoom, and you made it very enjoyable. I feel very confident in my ability to be a great FTO now! ”
— Deputy Andrew Long, Jackson County (Iowa) Sheriff’s Office

FTO Basic

This program encompasses multiple schools of thought for developing a great field training officer by building leadership skills and identifying variables that can help maximize the effectiveness of the FTO/trainee experience. Students drive into their own department’s FTO process, share best practices, and identify areas for improvement.”
— Brandon Kuske, Edina Police Department
“I really enjoyed the last three days of class. You keep stuff interesting and entertaining. You also completely understand how to teach and deal with cops in training sessions. You definitely have a gift to connect with students and keep any and all material put in front of you interesting and fun as hell.
— Paul C. Lauria, Captain, Mt. Pleasant Police Department
“The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has used Field Training Solutions to train our field training officers for several years. We are very satisfied with the training program and recommend Field Training Solutions for your field training needs.
— Sgt. Schenck, Field Training Coordinator, Washington County Sheriff’s Office
