The increasingly diverse challenges and changing service demands confronting law enforcement require that the content and instructional methodologies of peace officer training be regularly evaluated and updated.
Apex Officer's police and law enforcement training program is designed to assist law enforcement agencies in keeping personnel current with Continued Professional Training (CPT) and State and California POST mandates for Perishable Skills Training.
In January 2002 California POST implemented the Perishable Skills Program (PSP). This training requires all law enforcement personnel to complete a minimum of 14 hours of specific training within a 24 month period. PSP is comprised of 4 areas of training:
POST’s Training Administrators Course (TAC) is designed for newly assigned training administrators and administrative staff who coordinate the certification and presentation of POST courses via the POST Electronic Data Interchange System (EDI). To submit a request to attend the TAC course, you can access the resource on POST's Training Administrators Course page.
All California Law Enforcement personnel with an active POST appointment may now instantly check their POST Continuing Professional Training (CPT) and Perishable Skills (PS) training status by visiting the Compliance Dashboard.
