DynCorp International (DI) embedded police mentors working in support of the Afghanistan National Police/Ministry of Interior Development Program (AMDP) worked with Afghan Uniformed Police (AUP) officers to develop a specialized Training Education Officer Course in Southern Afghanistan. The course was developed to improve field training across the province by providing specialized training to AUP officers in the field.
The “train the trainer” course of instruction, by design, provides the AUP training officers and non-commissioned officers a base level of operational training to conduct police operations courses in the field. The course teaches AUP officers how to properly teach the police curriculum, including how to organize, research, and lay out lesson plans. Trainees are also mentored in techniques for addressing groups and documenting students’ progress.
“Through this specialized course we are able to equip the Afghan police who have been trained by DI’s embedded police mentors to pass on their knowledge to Afghan police recruits in the field,” said Robert Rahn, DynCorp International Program Support Coordinator. “We cover all topics from developing budgets to operating and managing training centers to help the AUP eventually become self-sustaining.” Read more →
