What is the Training Needs Analysis?
Colorado POST rules require that an analysis of training needs for each region occur every three years. To help accomplish this analysis a survey of training topics, courses, and equipment needs is conducted. That information is collected, collated, analyzed, and provided to Colorado POST and each training region’s governing board.
How is the survey conducted?
The survey consists of questions which are designed to be relevant regarding training topics for Colorado agencies. The questions and topics in the survey were reviewed and approved by POST and the training regions governing boards.
The survey is being sent to each law enforcement agency in Colorado. It is being conducted through a website link. If, for some unintended reason, your agency did not receive a link to the survey, please click the correct link below to access the survey for your region.
Who should complete the survey?
The surveys have been sent to personnel listed at POST as official representatives of their agency. In some instances, it will make sense for the recipient of the survey to pass it on to a different member of their agency who is assigned to the training unit or oversees the training initiatives at that agency.
Only one survey per agency can be accepted. It is a good idea to seek input from members of your agency who have firsthand knowledge or experiences with trainings, but please consolidate responses onto one survey for submission.
