    Certified Law Enforcement Instructor training

    Is anyone aware of an on-line training course to become a Certified Law Enforcement Instructor? If in the absence of any such on-line training, is there any organization/agency between NYC and Washington DC that regularly holds such training in person [other than the Pennsylvania State Police, of which I am already aware]?
    Thanks in advance.

    Certified by whom and for what? Lot of different levels and types of Instructor certifications.

    FLETC Cheltenham (in MD right outside of DC) has the Law Enforcement Instructor Training Program and Law Enforcement Adjunct Instructor Training Program wich certifies you to instruct at FLETC. I'm guessing it would suffice across the board for most federal agencies. Of course, it would not in any way qualify you or certify you to instruct in any specialties (firearms; driving; defensive tactics; etc).

    I'm up for a position as an instructor for a local law enforcement/criminal justice academy, and they require the instructors to have some sort of certification as a law enforcement instructor [no need for specialization in firearms, defensive tactics, etc]. They do have their own in-house certification course, but that's only in the spring and they would like to bring me on board sooner than that. One issue is that I'm retired from law enforcement, and I believe that the FLETC course requires current federal LE employment.

    It's been my experience that this is mostly agency-directed training. DEA had there own Instructor Certification Program and I'd check with your local LE Academy for courses they're aware of in your area.

    Thanks. PSP has the training, but they require students to be active LEO's. I'm retired.

    Another resource is the ILEETA web site.

    Does the state POST have an instructor certification?

    I'll take a look at ILEETA, thanks!

    Here in PA it's the MPOETC, but PSP does the training. And PSP requires current LE employment. When I was with ATF, I put in for the FLETC certified law enforcement instructor training. Each time, my GS would deny me, saying, "You don't conduct any training," to which I would reply, "I need the certification to become an instructor." He just couldn't grasp the concept.
