CTO Designation Program Overview

The Chief Training Officer (CTO) Designation Program, which launched June 2012, was created to recognize administrators of training and educational programs in emergency services who have demonstrated excellence and outstanding achievement throughout their career. The designation is not a training program but a verification and recognition of past accomplishments and a starting point for future achievements. The program specifies minimum eligibility requirements in the form of academic achievements and practical experience. The process also assesses what contributions to the emergency services field the chief training officer has made in the way of professional articles, public speaking, teaching and research as well as professional memberships and community and civic involvement.
