I am certifiable....
I just finished a week long general instructor school. Damn it was stressful! We had to give a 1 minute impromptu speech on an object that was pulled out of a box.
We also had to give a 5 minute and a 20 minute power point presentation. We didn't have much time to make our slides or lesson plans. But it's over now....WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What they do is take the "tough cop" mentality out of you and remold you into the mindset of an educator, mentor, and role model. And they do it in two weeks. It may have taken you years to develop the "cop" mentality, and they ruin it in two weeks.
Within that two weeks, you will also learn the curriculum, classroom management, how to handle discipline problems and classroom distractions, time management, and several other things. It will be an interesting two weeks.
Have to say that it was probably the toughest school I've attended, but the rewards and satisfaction you get out of the program all outweigh it.
It was a great sixteen year ride for me, until my sheriff decided to drop the program a year ago. I always thought I would be able to finish out my LE years doing D.A.R.E. Oh well, he's the sheriff. Guess he can do things like that.
BTW, WCSO, best of luck. Just go in with an open mind and you'll do fine.

The course I took was similar.
We also did the 1 minute impromptu speech on an object. Mine was light bulb.
Then we had to do a 15 minute presentation and for the final a 30 min. presentation. for the 15 minute one, i did "Use of Confidential Informants" and for the 30 minute one, i did it on "Club Drugs"
Our instructors were very good. they gave us alot of good pointers.
