The CPO Instructor Assessment Committee is a committee of PHTA Instructors that act as a resource to PHTA's Education Department. Each Assessment Committee member assists in in-person and virtual instructor trainings. Committee members assess each candidate's performance in teach-backs for assigned chapters, interaction with other candidates, and final examination scores. Recommendations are provided for ongoing assessment practices to enhance the candidates' experience and takeaway from each school.
