The Assessor Training Program (ATP) prepares participants to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of a FLETA assessor. Participants will discuss the role of FLETA in improving federal law enforcement training and operations, while discovering the vital role assessors have in ensuring the integrity and credibility of FLETA. Working as a FLETA team member, participants will complete the assessment; evaluate agency policies and procedures in accordance with the FLETA Standards; and document their findings.
