NYFPS offers participants the option to register for an On-site Training session at your school. This resource is designed to allow our team to provide training to the school's advisors and students that have registered to participate in the competitive components. Workshops are primarily designed for GIPS participants, but CmPS and Scenario Writing sessions are also available upon request.
Training session attendees can improve their skills and gain knowledge of the FPS best practices in order to become a better competitor. Teachers will learn new techniques of problem solving to integrate into their lessons.
Future Problem Solving Training Workshop
DESCRIPTION: On-Site Training workshops will take attendees through the six-step problem solving process and provide advisors with strategies for instructing students in the process. The training sessions are designed to reveal the best techniques for approaching GIPS. Instructors will go over key concepts, best practices, and examples. Attendees will have opportunities to put the concepts learned during the workshop into practice and receive guidance from the instructor.
CUSTOMIZED: The training coordinator will aim to provide training which is best tailored to the advisor and their students' FPS skill level. Newer teams will also receive a review of the FPS process and high level overview before the instructor dives into the more detailed approaches to improving competition performance.
MATERIALS: The registration fee for On-Site Training sessions include coaching materials and a coach manual, which are products sold separately by FPSPI.
INSTRUCTORS: Our team members who conduct the training have years of experience as both former FPS participants and NYFPS evaluators. Evaluators with years of experience will have deep familiarity with the process of grading GIPS packets and methods of maximizing point acquisition.
