General Information

Course enrollment is open to commissioned peace officers who are sponsored by their agency. We reserve the right to limit the number of students from a single department to ensure equitable representation of officers in a class.

Course registration is only available through the Public Safety Training Campus. If you are already a user in the Training Campus, you may log on and register for the desired course. If you are not a user, please click “New User” to obtain a username and password.

Your agency will be billed for non-funded courses after completion. No payments will be accepted prior to course completion.
