Annotation: This article describes the development of an on-the-job training program for small and medium-sized security departments.
Abstract: The first major task is to select the training committee, which is responsible for obtaining information about the required job skills. The committee will also help the training-program developer prepare the job description and list major tasks of the position and the steps necessary to complete each task. In most cases, it will also help prepare the on-the-job training program manual and assist in implementing and delivering the program to the newly hired employees. The program manual should consist of copies of the job description and major tasks matrices, copies of all items listed in the information resources section of the matrices, and a certification section that would ensure that the on-the-job trainer has adequately explained and demonstrated each major task and the steps required to accomplish it. Once the trainers have been briefed on the program and have reviewed training materials, the newly hired employees should be assigned to their trainers. The final step is the evaluation of the training program, which includes determining whether the newly trained employee can perform the required tasks. The benefits of such training are outlined. 4 footnotes.
