Instructor Development Institute (IDI)

The Instructor Development Institute (IDI) was formed to provide standardized, multi-level, multi-track programs to develop professionalism in the delivery of law enforcement instruction. The original design, development and delivery of the IDI program began in 2006. This website provides overview information, course schedules, and other useful information about on-going instructor development activities.

IDI Program Overview

The IDI provides multiple training courses to develop professionalism in the delivery of law enforcement instruction.  Beginning with foundational courses and competency verification, subsequent levels of the IDI build in a modular format and provide for advancement and specialization in different areas of law enforcement training.

The IDI is grounded in contemporary adult learning methodologies, critical thinking, taxonomies of learning, paralanguage along with presentation and platform skills.  Progressive learning and proficiency in additional dimensions of subject matter expertise, instructional technology and design, and mentoring, coaching, and leadership, eventually lead to instructional mastery.  Following are descriptions of the four POST-certified instructor programs of the IDI.
