EMS-FTEP™ presents a structured program for transitioning new employees in to the EMS agency. It is designed and constructed to provide both the employee and the agency with the greatest possible chance of success, by providing a framework that assures employees understand, develop, and can demonstrate those skills and behaviors that the employing agency considers essential.
EMS-FTEP™ consists of two parts – a Basic Field Training Officer Course (three days) and a program management course entitled Developing and Managing the EMS Field Training and Evaluation Program (full five days). Agencies undertaking EMS-FTEP™ for the first time are encouraged to send a core group of supervisors, managers, and FTO candidates through the entire 40-hour program. Once the agency has embraced the core concepts of EMS-FTEP™, groups of FTO candidates can be integrated in to the agency program through the 3-day Basic Field Training Officer Course. EMS-FTEP courses are taught by experienced instructors whose agencies have successfully implemented EMS-FTEP for a period of years.
