Course Description

This course is designed for instructors selected to teach in an ICI Core Course or ICI Foundation Specialty Courses. The ICI Instructor Course (ICII) is required by POST regulation for these instructors. This course utilizes an adult, experience-based model that is used throughout the Institute in the various investigative training courses.

Phase One (three days) of the course focuses on developing/enhancing facilitation skills, presentation skills and the use of learning activities in the classroom. Students actively participate in a variety of learning activities then transition to designing, developing and documenting new learning activities for use in their ICI modules of instruction.

Between Phases One and Two, a mentor will be assigned to assist the student in all learning and learning activity development. The mentor is a very positive part of this program and they are there to be a partner in the student’s success.

During Phase Two (two days), approximately two to four weeks after Phase One, participants submit a documented learning activity summary and facilitate their learning activity in a classroom environment with their peer students as learners. All students are formally debriefed and receive constructive feedback from their peers and the course facilitator cadre.

Upon successful conclusion of Phase Two, students move to Phase Three where a POST Master Instructor formally evaluates the student facilitating a live ICI course. Successful completion of the Phase Three evaluation qualifies the student to receive certification as an ICI instructor.

IMPORTANT: Please come to this course with a laptop computer and an assigned ICI lesson to teach. If you are an ICI course administrator and are attending to learn the process, please come with an idea of a lesson that you will teach, such as the introduction, etc. You will develop a new learning activity for this portion of your ICI course. If any student is unsure of the lesson you will teach please contact your local ICI course administrator or presenter who assigned you to this training. Bring all lesson materials that you currently have (lesson plans, PowerPoint’s, handout material, etc.) used in your ICI training module/course. Students are also encouraged to bring thumb drives to save and move files around during the program. This will allow you to work from already established document templates.

PRESENTERS and COURSE ADMINISTRATORS: If you have signed someone up to attend this course; please ensure they are provided a copy of these instructions and that they understand the course expectations. Following this process helps ensure they return to you having successfully completed the ICI instructor training requirements.
