Representative presentation topics are listed below.

Scheduling, NAPT 606, Emergency Planning and Risk Management;
NAPT 701 Introduction to Leadership and Management, and NAPT

Instructor In-service

Ted has worked with instructors for 20 years.  He has been involved in
preparing new instructors, with providing professional development to
instructors, and in training others to be trainers of instructors.  
Unfortunately, once initial instructor training is completed, many
instructors never get any more feedback and support for further skill
development.  Our staff receive increasingly sophisticated messages
in the media, our instruction must also grow in sophistication to
compete for attention

Staff In-service

How much do you have spent in wages every time you bring your staff
together for 2, 3, or 4 hours?  Providing a motivating presentation for
these front-line employees is a great investment.  It will not only
energize them about their jobs, it will give them the skills they need to
work in today's high expectation world, it will create a positive job
attitude, and will make them great ambassadors for your operation in
the district and the community.
