Training is about learning new skills and certifying the ability to perform them to a given standard. Section 1 begins with a one-year outline for training officers. Section 2 follows with a table of listings for each outline given in the book, indicating whether the drill is inside or outside and the preparation time needed for it. Section 3 consists of general guidelines for the training officer on how to conduct drills in a safe but effective manner. Section 4 contains the outlines of the various drills that should be conducted. They can be customized and altered, but the basic concept will provide you with a solid place to start. The safety of the members is paramount. Follow all safety precautions and conduct the drills in accordance with standards and company policies.
