This 40-hour program has been designed by James Wagner and Associates, LLC for the purpose of providing a field training model for police recruits that incorporates adult learning theories and problem-based learning. This course will enable trainers to use these methods to develop new police officers who will be competent in the areas of community policing and problem solving.
COURSE OVERVIEW: The primary focus of the course will be to provide training officers with the specialized skills, knowledge and abilities needed to train a recruit using the principles of this training model. COURSE GOALS: The goals of this course are to:

- Study the Learning Matrix cells within the PBL model and add to them, when appropriate to meet local agency needs.
- Engage in problem-based learning as a method to organize their study of both the matrix and the program’s evaluation models.
- Incorporate research on new education movements into their training plans, including research on PBL.
- Develop resources for Learning Activity Packages.
- Practice using evaluation methods and forms during role-play, scenarios, and PBL training.
- Employ current technology, including the internet and automated computerized systems.
- Teach classmates relevant information on emotional intelligence, multiple intelligence, and conflict resolution for use in their training program.
- Design, create, and/or review Learning Matrix binders.
- Evaluate this training course.
