Law Enforcement Students Graduate from Instructor Training Course at CFCC
Cape Fear Community College celebrated the graduation of 14 area law enforcement students from its Instructor Training course on October 2, 2020.
CFCC’s Instructor Training course is regulated by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education Training and Standards Commission and is mandated for anyone wishing to teach in Basic Law Enforcement, Detention Officer Certification, Telecommunicator Certification, and other related training.
The class consists of 81 hours of instruction and requires successful completion of an original written lesson plan that must be presented in 70 minutes, both of which are evaluated and scored before students are able to sit for the state exam.
“Cape Fear Community College is proud to offer this specialized training for criminal justice personnel planning to teach in mandated law enforcement courses,” said CFCC Director of Law Enforcement Programs Tim Fuss. “This training is essential to competently research, plan, prepare, and present a block of instruction in accordance with the Instructional Systems Design (ISD) Model. Congratulations to these graduates and best of luck as they further their law enforcement careers.”
Agencies represented in this class were New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, Carolina Beach Police Department, Kure Beach Police Department, Oak Island Police Department, Pender County Sheriff’s Office, New Hanover County 911, Boiling Spring Lakes Police Department, and NC Department of Public Safety.
“CFCC continues to expand our partnership with local law enforcement agencies to provide valuable training for a service that is essential to the safety of our community,” said CFCC President Jim Morton. “I congratulate this cohort and look forward to seeing them on campus for training events.”
