Description

The Law Enforcement Instructional Skills Training Program (LEISTP) is designed to provide training in law enforcement instructional skills focused on curriculum delivery.  Students are not required to prepare a lesson plan for delivery, however they do receive an overview of lesson plans, scenarios, and performance objectives.  Students are required to bring an agency lesson plan that they will be required to use to deliver a 40 minute practical exercise (PE) designed to evaluate their ability to instruct from an existing lesson plan. The LEISTP incorporates a variety of instructional methodologies including participative lecture, student-centered learning, demonstrations, role-play, and presentation laboratories. To receive a FLETC Certificate of Training, students must pass a written exam and a 40 minute PE.
