NTT Accepting New Applications
The G.R.E.A.T. National Training Team (NTT) is currently accepting applications for new Team Leaders. Candidates must be nominated by a Regional Administrator, a current NTT member, or the command staff of the nominee’s agency. Nominations can be
e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, marked for the attention of Karen Ohman, G.R.E.A.T. National Program Office, or faxed to Ms. Ohman at (850) 386-5356. An invitation to apply and an application form will be mailed to all qualified nominees.
The NTT is the cadre of instructors for G.R.E.A.T. Officer Training and other G.R.E.A.T.-related training events held at regional and national levels. Certification to the NTT is a prestigious achievement for a G.R.E.A.T. officer and his or her agency. NTT members agree to devote two or more weeks each year to the national training effort. All expenses are covered by the G.R.E.A.T. National Program Office, and remuneration for NTT service is provided to Team Leaders and/or their agencies.
Successful candidates for the NTT must possess and demonstrate a broad range of skills and qualities, including strong communication and interpersonal skills, time-management skills, personal initiative, flexibility, exemplary role-modeling in both formal and informal situations, and a firm commitment to faithful replication of the G.R.E.A.T. Program. For more information, see the G.R.E.A.T. Training Procedures, specifically, TP107 for information on selection and approval of Team Leader candidates and TP106 for minimum service requirements for NTT staff.
G.R.E.A.T. Team Leader Training (GTLT), a prerequisite for NTT certification, is scheduled for January 23−27, 2012. A GTLT is held only when there is a need to add new NTT members due to attrition. The upcoming GTLT will be the first since 2009. The deadline for applications is October 14, 2011.
