"I spent a lot of time as a field training officer (FTO) during an era where we were just starting to use word processors to complete reports. I could write the narrative portion of my Daily Observation Reports (DORs) on the computer, but the finished product would be printed out, paper-clipped to a DOR face sheet completed by hand, and sent through the paper mill to live out its days in a file cabinet. There is a still a huge amount of detail and documentation to a properly-run field training and evaluation program (FTEP), but now there are several software products to automate and streamline the field training documentation process. I recently reviewed Field Training Tracker by DesignPD.
Field Training Tracker is a web-based application that duplicates all of the paper forms involved in an FTEP. There are numerous advantages to running an FTEP on a computer-based platform as opposed to a paper-based system. Field Training Tracker tracks details that are easy to mess up, such as what sequential training day last Thursday was, or how many hours the training team was on duty that day. The program won’t accept forms missing critical details, such as the recruit’s name or the shift assigned, assuming those details are part of the form. "
Field Training Tracker is a leading FTO software program designed to improve and simplify the paperwork of field training officers. Field Training Tracker is being used in police, corrections, communications, and EMS environments around the country.
