Series established February 17, 1993
This series specification describes two classes at the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) which are used to design audio-visual, computer software and hardware system specifications, and integration strategies for delivery of interactive training; to provide consultation and assistance to local and State agencies, training presenters, community college presenters and POST staff on development of law enforcement training programs which use, or are designed for use on, advanced technology instructional delivery systems; determine the scope of specific technology requirements and the applicability and reliability of existing and future hardware and software systems to deliver or support technical training in an adult learning environment.
This is the first journey level in the series. Incumbents in this class are typically responsible for providing a wide range of services which may include: developing specifications for training delivery hardware and software configurations for interactive video applications; developing and delivering courseware for law enforcement training programs using high order languages, authoring systems, and computer-generated graphics; working with team(s) of instructional design specialists, developers and media producers to update and design new courseware; maintaining computer management information systems relating to curriculum development and specific hardware and software applications; integrating software and hardware specifications and configurations to deliver law enforcement training programs; and providing assistance to local and State agencies, training presenters, community college presenters and POST staff on audio-visual, computer hardware and software systems integration, and installation and operation of interactive video courseware and hardware.
This is the full journey level in the series. Incumbents in this class will direct the development and delivery of courseware for complex, large-scale, competency-based interactive projects; create detailed systems specifications for interactive video applications (such as IVD, DVI, or CD-ROM); work in team setting(s) with designers, writers, developers, media producers and curriculum specialists; research new developments in instructional technology systems; manage hardware and software acquisitions, ensuring compatibility of all high level programming languages and authoring systems for a wide variety of specific training projects; design computer management information systems; conduct periodic updates of software and courseware provided to training presenters by POST or by other sources; and assure that participating local and State agencies, training presenters, community college presenters, and POST staff are provided the technical support for hardware and software configurations necessary to deliver law enforcement training using advanced technology applications delivery systems.
One year of experience in the California state service performing courseware development duties in an instructional setting and in a classification at a level no less than that of Programmer II.
Experience: Two years of pertinent professional experience above the trainee level which must have included responsibility for the development of instructional computer software integrated with audio-visual technology (i.e., interactive videodisc, digital video interactive, etc.). (Experience in the California state service applied toward this pattern must include at least one�year performing the duties of a class with a level of responsibility equivalent to that of Programmer II.) and Education: Equivalent to graduation from college.
Equivalent to graduation from college with a four-year degree in Computer Science, Instructional Systems Design, or Instructional Technology.
One year of experience in the California state service performing courseware development duties in an instructional setting, at a level equivalent to that of Instructional Systems Engineer, Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training.
Experience: Three years of increasingly responsible, pertinent professional experience above the trainee level which must have included responsibility for the development of complex instructional computer software integrated with audio-visual technology (i.e., interactive videodisc, digital video interactive, etc.). (Experience in the California state service applied toward this patten must include at least one year performing these duties in a class with a level of responsibility equivalent to that of Instructional Systems Engineer, Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training.) and Education: Equivalent to graduation from college.
Knowledge of: Methods used for integrating hardware and software packages to design and deliver courseware; a variety of advanced technological applications used for training; computer-based training, specifically interactive video technology; authoring systems/languages; graphics software applications for instructional programs.
Ability to: Create systems specifications for interactive video technology applications; effectively use computer authoring systems and programming languages to develop courseware in a manner that provides compatibility between the various authoring systems, programming languages, and graphics software in use; utilize existing, or create new, graphics software and applications for particular projects; trouble-shoot, diagnose, and correct problems involving interactive video courseware and hardware; update or design new courseware for use on interactive video systems; communicate effectively with a wide variety of people in State and local law enforcement agencies and academic institutions; work effectively as a member of a team and communicate effectively with instructional designers, media produces, and other POST staff.
Ability to: In addition to the above, manage hardware/software integration and design of interactive video courseware; design and implement computerized instructional management systems; research new developments in advanced technology and their potential use to deliver law enforcement training.
Proven experience with development of training programs using interactive video technology; familiarity with law enforcement training needs and practices.
