User Account vs. Membership
What is a "User" Account?
The first thing to know, a User Account is NOT a membership
In order to obtain an MTOA membership, a unique user account is required
Examples of User Accounts without MTOA memberships
Organization Administrator (those signing others up for training and NOT interested in MTOA membership)
Exhibitors at the Annual Training Conference (company employees registering for conferences)
Intended for Those Registering Officers from an Agency:
This system automatically populates MTOA members based on the agencies they select in their profiles. It's important to note that administrators, such as secretaries, office staff, or agency personnel responsible for enrolling individuals in classes (who may not require membership themselves), may not need a membership.
You can register any member who has listed their agency, unit, or team in their profile. Team commanders, unit supervisors, or individuals with agency or unit administrator privileges can easily sign up multiple people for training without requiring the member's username and password.
If you're interested in becoming the Organization Administrator, please send a request to: firstname.lastname@example.org. It's important to know that all Organization Administrator requests are reviewed and approved by the MTOA before granting the authority.
Mobile Training Unit (MTU)
How to Host a MTU Class
We can eliminate both costs by sending instructor(s) to you rather than sending students to us. This allows your agency to put more people through the training potentially.
Host Agency Commitments
"Hosting" MTOA training requires some leg work from the host agency.
LEIN teletypes: The host law enforcement agency will send at least one (1) LEIN teletype to the region where the training is conducted (LEIN rules & restrictions apply).
Assist the MTOA training division: Direct coordination of training venues for EACH training day: classroom, appropriate training venues suitable for training, live-fire ranges, etc.
Live Fire range classes: Host agencies are responsible for providing an appropriate live fire range (Target backers, sticks, target stands, staplers, staples, and paper targets are optional)
"Comp" or "Free" seat criteria:
"Hosting" an MTOA training course does not guarantee that your agency will receive free training. At only $80 per day, free spots aren't easy to come by!
Comp or no charge seats in any MTOA training are determined case-by-case.
The MTOA does NOT guarantee free or no-charge seats for ANY training event.
All comp or free spots are pre-approved by the director of training.
Possibly, the most critical part of the planning process for any training course is securing a location conducive to the event's requirements.
Depending on the class, the host agency may be responsible for procuring the following:
Hosting a training course starts when the agreement is initiated with the MTOA Office.
Pre-Event: Once confirmed, coordinate the training event with the MTOA Training Director to locate and secure classrooms, ranges, and other venues as needed. The host agency is also responsible for marketing and LEIN announcements (LEIN announcements must be sent to the MTOA Training Director for approval).
Event: Assist with logistics and attendee needs, possible after-class time/hours issues - venue changes, weather issues, etc.
Benefits of Hosting an MTOA Training Course
The primary benefit of hosting is convenience. Training in a venue close to home saves money and time.
If you are considering hosting an MTOA training event to obtain training at a reduced rate or no charge, don't hesitate to contact us directly at email@example.com.
The MTOA is committed to providing training within budget constraints and reason.
