We believe that the APSI provides great products to our members, and it is our trainers that uphold and enhance that quality from year to year.
Rookie trainer selection is a season long process beginning with the first selection held before Trainer’s Coordination, followed by various training and assessment tasks that need to be fulfilled. After the season, the discipline technical committees will review all rookie trainers and determine whether they will be promoted ‘level trainer’ status based on their performance over that year.
Included is an outline explaining what can be expected during the selection day, key dates, and a guideline of what needs to be covered over the season. All of which should help you decide if a position on the APSI training team is for you as well as if you are prepared enough to become a vital part of the APSI training program.
