About Peace Officer Training Continuing Education Credits

The online training course, Peace Officer:  Realizing the True Purpose of Policing has received the IADLEST National Certificate Program (NCP) Seal of Excellence and qualifies for 8 continuing education training credits.  In many states, courses which receive IADLEST NCP also qualify for continuing education training credits for police training.  In other cases, an officer’s employing agency has the discretion to determine what training may be used to fulfill the mandatory training requirements. Therefore, as long as the agency head approves the training, it can be used toward the mandatory training hours.  Check the status of your state on the list below.  And reach out to us with any questions.  We’re here to help!
