Appropriate for stand-alone training programs as a reference book for current EMS training officers or as a self-study tool for new EMS training officers. This unique text addresses the EMS field training officer--the person who has been promoted to either participate in training/evaluating employees or who is the training coordinator for the EMS provider. It addresses the fundamentals needed in being a good training officer, providing information on motivating and communicating with their students, as well as giving information on principles and practices involved in teaching adults. Organized into five sections, each asks the user to do a self-evaluation to determine personal traits, motivating factors, hidden 'drivers,' management styles, learning preferences, and more.show more
