Presentations: Sustainable Equipment and Maintenance and Creating an Effective Training System

What elements are required within an effective MPA training system to instill and sustain improved operational law enforcement and resource protection capability? We will provide examples, methods, and processes to analyze performance needs, design and develop training program elements, deliver training, create qualification/certification programs, develop standard operating procedures (SOPs), effectively use job aids, conduct measurement via testing and take key steps to manage an effective training program.
