TWO Saturday Presentations at FDLFR:
SO YOU’RE THE NEW TRAINING OFFICER!
JIM AUSTAD, Fox Valley Technical College
This session will guide you as a new or seasoned training officer on how to build a training program to be compliant with SPS 330, ISO and NFPA. This program will also help you lead your organization to meet your mission of your department along with increasing your recruitment and retention.
TRAINING FOR SUCCESS
Bring your flash drives and laptops; prepare to add to your training repertoire and training program organization. This session includes a brief lecture component followed by a "sharing" session to assist each other in developing departmental training plans and/or course planning. Consider this a collaborative "brainstorming" session to grow as an educator.
Often instructors know how to present material; however, many are a little stranded when it comes to creating a class or presentation with a goal in mind. Much of this is learned over time and through experience. This session is designed to help educators define a training need, establish the objectives, goals, or JPR’s and put methodology into a plan to fulfil a need.
