Church Security team leaders have expressed frustration with the issue of training, and I have heard from people on the team who don’t necessarily like attending training because it consists of the leader reading policies to them. BOOORING!
I believe training is best done in small bites. I have been to day long trainings where I walk away with about two actual productive hours, and the rest is wasted time because my brain isn’t able to absorb the training. The best training involves learning a skill, then being able to immediately practice it with a lot of reps, then being tested upon the teaching with a short test.
What your team needs are short 10 -20 minute training lessons that can be shared with the whole team or presented in a group session, discussed, practiced, tested and then on you can be on your way. I am developing this course over the next year and I am going to disseminate it on our blog. If you are a member from Free to Legacy, you will have access to the lesson for two weeks. The study guide, test, certificate and video download will be made available for sale at a very reasonable price. This will help us sustain CSA and we appreciate your support.
