Basic Certification Course
The Training Center conducts a 15-week basic course. The course is open to individuals who meet the required admission criteria. The basic course curriculum is based on the Police Standards Advisory Council (PSAC) approved state-wide law enforcement job task analysis, which was completed in 2019. The training program is a physically and mentally challenging program that incorporates a blend of online learning, classroom instruction, and hands-on skill development. The physical tasks as identified in the most recent Job Task Analysis and approved by the PSAC must be completed by the student prior to receiving certification. The course is designed to allow the successful graduate to assume entry-level law enforcement duties, although many agencies will conduct additional field training to new hires.
