Interactive Virtual HGN Training Innovation
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic all but shut down face-to-face training, the need to enhance the effective use of online, interactive officer training was becoming a priority. This session will introduce a breakthrough boating under the influence (BUI) training project that will effectively improve an officer’s skills at both administering and evaluating subject performance of the HGN test. Officers will be taught the correct administrative procedures, practice the procedures with feedback, and then “test-out” their new skills by demonstrating their proficiency on virtual test subjects.
