Our Field Training Officer Software (FTO) automates Field Training Evaluation Programs (FTEP) by eliminating cumbersome, error-prone and unsecured paper based systems. It offers instant access to all field training documents (DOR's, Check Lists, Evaluations, etc.) and improves reporting accuracy and efficiency. The Field Training Officer is equally suited for police, detention, and emergency communications.


FTO delivers the central control your organization needs in an easy-to-use, multi-user digital document management system and reduces effort spent managing the process so you can focus on training and evaluation. The system supplies all of the integrated tools you need to create, catalog, edit, spell-check, evaluate, print, secure, and archive your FTO / CTO documents.


Field training requirements can vary widely from one organization to the next. Our FTO solution lets users easily customize their DOR's, check lists, rating models, terminology and more, making it the most flexible solution available.


Platform: Windows 7 / Vista / XP / Server 2008 / Server 2003



We believe all public safety organizations will benefit from our training systems and therefore set pricing by size of organization (active employees) and options selected. We will be delighted to provide you with a quotation tailored specifically for your organization.

  • Enforces Standards: FTO documents are formatted consistently and automatically, making document review and editing both easier and faster.

  • Flexible/Customizable: Standard FTO document templates are provided to get you up and running fast. Customize these templates to fit your needs and preferences, even create new user-defined documents to extend the standard curriculum. Manage multiple training programs, implement your own DOR and Checklist categories, choose from a variety of rating models, and replace standard terminology with your own.

  • Easy to Use: A simple and intuitive interface presents users with only the functions they need to fulfill their role in your FTO program. Irrelevant menus, forms, and reports are suppressed. Little training is required for operation.

  • Secure: Easily manage security through the software rather than setting constraints on network folders and individual documents. Software access requires a personal password. Access to features and documents within the software is determined by the user's role in your FTO program: Trainee; Field Training Officer; Supervisor; Commander. "Electronic Signatures" let you know precisely who has approved each document. Automatically locks documents to prevent further changes once a digital signature is added.

  • Centralized Database: All documents are stored in a central database for multi-user accessibility, complete security, backup protection, and control. No individual files to manage or keep track of. You have one comprehensive depository of all field training data for historical reference.

  • Intranet / Internet Access: Available as a traditional network application or as a client / server application with an easy-to-manage server database engine and workstation client application over an IP network.
