NLECTC Certified Field Search Instructors Training Course

NLECTC is sponsoring a Certified Field Search Instructors Training Course on August 13-14 in Denver, CO. The course is open to representatives of public sector criminal justice agencies who are experienced Field Search users. If selected, you will receive intensive training from the Field Search Project Manager, Jim Tanner, on every aspect of FSWin and FSMac. You will also learn the one day course curriculum that will allow you to be able to teach and certify Field Search users within your agency, making the agency less dependent on external sources of training. You may also, if you wish, contract with other agencies who are in need of training.

The training is free of charge but you are responsible for your own travel expenses.

I have attached a course announcement and an application for the training. The application is a form file pdf, so you can complete it using Adobe Reader and email it back to
