Level III – Advanced Instructor Course

The Advanced Instructor Course (Level 3) consists of a 40-hour Phase I and a 16-hour Phase II. These sessions focus on the design and development of a course, instructor development skills related to instruction, facilitation and presentation skills as well as the development of a POST certification package.

Instruction involves the use of a computer, so a personal laptop with the ability to access files on a thumb drive, Microsoft Word and email is required. If you only have agency email and cannot access it while in travel status, please establish a free email account prior to attendance (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.).

Target Audience: Course attendees are limited to personnel currently training, or developing training for, California Law Enforcement personnel. The Government Training Agency verifies eligibility of trainers and reserves the right to refuse entrance.

  • Developing course goals, performance tasks and diverse learning environments
  • Design and develop lesson plans and learning activities to align with course goals and verify student learning
  • Experiential and outcomes-based learning environments
