The Hoover Group of Reno uses associates as well as adjunct instructors to offer quality instruction in various contemporary law enforcement topics. Each instructor has practical experience and academic training in the areas that they teach. Classes typically range from 3-5 days depending upon the complexity of the subject. We use adult-learning strategies in all of our training, which enhances the student’s learning experience both practically and intellectually.
New training classes will be announced as they become scheduled.
President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing Recommends PTO
5.13.1 Action Item: The U.S. Department of Justice should support the development of broad Field Training Program standards and training strategies that address changing police culture and organizational procedural justice issues that agencies can adopt and customize to local needs.
A potential model for this is the Police Training Officer program developed by the COPS Office in collaboration with PERF and the Reno (Nevada) Police Department. This problem-based learning strategy used adult learning theory and problem solving tools to encourage new officers to think with a proactive mindset, enabling the identification of and solution to problems within their communities.
We are presently working on putting our Basic PTO Training Course in an online format. Jerry Hoover has been teaching online courses at the University of Nevada for 8 years. While on-site training is still available, the online training will provide access to the same training at an affordable cost and convenient time.
We just completed a beta-test of the online class and are in the process of assessment. If you are interested in taking an online PTO course, contact us for more details.
