K-9FTO has designed the first and only Police K-9 Handler, Instructor & Supervisor, Online Training Courses.

K-9FTO Online K-9 Supervisor Course, consists of 15 Chapters, 7 sections of Case Law as well.
The goal of this K-9FTO Course is to bridge the gap between the academic training and the real street deployment, and add consistency in the training of one of the most important parts of the K9 Team, The Handler. This type of K-9FTO Training along with the course manual curriculum will help the industry. Once a trainee-handler has completed this course they should not have any questions in their mind about when, why, and how they are to utilize their department’s K9 on the street. In-turn this will assist in lowering liability and heighten officer safety.
After completing the entire 40 hour On-Line K-9FTO Course, and obtaining passing scores on all chapter quizzes, the candidate-trainee is now a Certified K-9FTO Field Training Officer.
The newly certified K-9FTO Officer will receive a Certificate of the Course Completion, along with an official K-9FTO Field Training Officer Logo Patch.
The newly certified K-9FTO Officer will receive will also have full access to download, or receive via US Mail, the K-9FTO Course Curriculum Training Manual. The K-9FTO Field Training Officer Course Curriculum Training Manual can then be utilized as they mentor, and guide their agencies new K9 handlers through an 80-hour Field Training Block of training. This 80-hour Field Training Block of training is intended to bridge the gap between the handler’s initial K9 handler-training, and the beginning of their time as an operational, effective K9 Team on the street.
