Continue meeting STC and departmental training requirements in a seamless manner while complying with CDC recommendations.
… I had the pleasure of being in two of the Zoom (Live On-Line) trainings this week (Addictionology and Emotional Intelligence: Trauma and Resiliency). The Instructor, Ms. Jamie McDermott, was awesome. She was insightful, fun, attentive, patient, and very encouraging and for us first timers of Zoom; she made us feel right at home. … they make learning enjoyable. Big Time Kudos …
History: Jamie was the STC training manager and lead trainer for a department of 600. This provided her with a very clear picture of what may be happening for training managers. Furthermore, Jamie was the training manager and President of Southern Counties Training Association (SCTA) when law enforcement lost STC funding. She led teams that created and implemented new systems to meet those requirements. Her department wanted to ensure that all officers were properly trained, and they were committed to meeting legal requirements under best practices. Both of those missions were accomplished, and Jamie’s team was recognized by the BOC (now BSCC) for innovation during that challenging time.
Currently, ICT can be of assistance in several key ways during this pandemic.
During 2019, Jamie invested $170,000 in a new “civilian centered” on-line training and consulting business. That business is thriving and has been active for approximately one year. Jamie presently leads live on-line seminars and one-on-one coaching sessions, meetings and has experienced great success with this new live on-line classroom experience. Because of this, ICT was ready to begin facilitating STC training immediately via the ZOOM platform when the pandemic began.
STC Requirements: Jamie has worked directly with STC to ensure that ICT meets all BSCC requirements while utilizing this new platform. We are very happy to announce that STC approved ICT’s live on-line classroom program. Therefore, you will be able to meet your training requirements AND meet the Center for Disease Control social distancing precautions simultaneously. Officers can use a laptop or desktop computer and take a four or eight-hour STC course from the comfort and safety of their home or office desk. Computer labs with WIFI connection can also be utilized in compliance with CDC social distancing recommendations.
ICT tracks attendance and verifies participation as Jamie personally teaches each course via ZOOM. Best practices for adult learning are always at the center of ICT’s curriculum.
