Welcome to the Arizona Chapter of the National Association of Field Officers or AZNAFTO. So many demands being placed on our first responders, field trainers in law enforcement, telecommunications, EMS and corrections are complex and challenging. Our trainers need to be as knowledgeable, professional, and effective as they can.
The mission of AZNAFTO is to be a resource for field trainers and public safety agencies for developing and growing field training programs.
What is a field trainer or field training officer? A field trainer guides a trainee from his/her graduation from academy or technical training through a formal on-the-job transition period to where the new employee can function as a solo-capable employee.
I encourage Arizona law enforcement, telecommunications, corrections and EMS field trainers and other educators in public safety disciplines to join AZNAFTO. The free and open exchange of ideas on how best to train our newest public safety employees is how we will keep Arizona public safety agencies the most professional and effective in the nation.
