Phase 2: Recruitment

Now that you have identified your goals and determined what you need in a training cadre, it is time to recruit a strong team to help you meet those goals. You will want individuals with a diverse set of skills who are dedicated to completing your mission. The structure of your training cadre will depend on your specific needs, goals, and resources.

When deciding who to choose for your training cadre, there are five basic steps to follow:

  1. Customize the Training Cadre Application[DOC – 50 KB] form and the Rubric: Applicant Rating Scale [DOC – 44 KB] based on your specific requirements.
  2. Provide the application to potential applicants.
  3. Form a review committee to help select members.
  4. Review the submitted applications using the selection rubric.
  5. Select cadre members.
