City Of Newnan Fire Marshal And Lieutenant Receive Instructor Certifications

The city of Newnan Fire Marshal, Ricky Ayers and Lt. John Byron receive their instructor certifications from the Georgia Police Academy.

“The instructor training I received will enable the Newnan Fire Department to teach classes at all different levels to keep training current and at an excellent level,” says Ayers. “This certification will open a lot more doors on training for the department and this certification allows me to help educate others on the issues. It has also help further my education in the field,” continues Ayers.

This Georgia Police Academy course was designed for the public safety officer who instructs in performance oriented training and is responsible for lesson plan development. Topics range from instructor liability and lesson design to testing and evaluation of learning. During the course each student writes an original lesson plan on a public safety topic of their choice and develops the presentation skills necessary to deliver that lesson.

The Georgia Police Academy was created in 1962 under Ga. Code Ann., § 35-4-1. In December of 1991, the Georgia Police Academy was consolidated with the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in accordance with “A Plan for the Reorganization at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center” adopted by the Board of Public Safety on December 4, 1991 and signed by the Honorable Zell Miller, Governor of Georgia.

The Georgia Police Academy Division provides advanced and specialized training in criminal investigations, traffic safety and enforcement, police operations, legal death/forensics investigations, drug investigations, community oriented policing and counterterrorism.
