The Law Enforcement Instructor Training Program (LEITP) is designed to provide training in law enforcement instructional skills focused on curriculum development and delivery.  Students are required to develop two lesson plans for delivery during the program.  One of the lesson plans will be used to deliver a 50-minute practical exercise designed to evaluate the ability to instruct from a lesson plan that the student has developed.  The LEITP incorporates a variety of instructional methodologies including participative lecture, student-centered activities, demonstrations, role-plays, and laboratories.  The LEITP is a Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) Center Basic (CB) training program.
