A PowerPoint presentation isn't required for teaching the class. A new instructor wouldn't have the necessary, required information to create such a presentation until after they've taken the class... so I'm trying to figure out how he could have one and why DPS would ask to see it?

During the classroom portion at the DPS training center are students required to create and show their own PowerPoint? I was just talking to a guy who said he took the class last year and was required to show his PowerPoint and make sure that it covered all required items and covered a minimum of 4 hours.

I couldn’t figure out when someone would have time to create one during the 3 day class and present it? I didn’t think his story checked out out. Just wanted to clarify with others who had taken it already. I like to be as prepared as possible before showing up. Especially seen as it’s my money on the line.

Sorry to say you won't actually learn much about teaching an LTC class in the LTC Instructor's course.

If you have the chance, ask a local instructor or two that you like if you can help them RO their qual shoots and audit the classroom portion. You'll get some good ideas about what works or doesn't work for your own classes.

You are not required to create, nor show a PowerPoint at this training.

What probably happened is that they got confused. If you want to use a PowerPoint to teach, then you will have to make your own, the RSD doesn’t provide you with one.

That's why you have to get an instructor's cert elsewhere. Old timers can correct me but I believe at one point the class was a day or two longer and they actually taught how to teach.
