It is important to combine learning with hands-on experience to fully prepare the candidate for the requirements of a higher position. This could mean offering high potential candidates opportunities for certifications or advanced degrees, and sending them to professional conferences to learn from other experts. A good example in the Public Safety area includes sending officers to the FBI Academy which includes both practical experience and classroom learning. These are great for your company/agency because those employees will bring that knowledge back with them to share.
