We provide two training sessions during the year. One in January for our "Winter Academy" and the "Summer Academy" which is held the first week of June.
A preliminary schedule will be posted for the Winter Academy will be available late summer and the schedule for the Summer Academy will be available mid-winter.
This section of our web site will be updated with the current information for the next academy training as soon as we have it finalized.
Summer Schedule will be published in early March.
We are always looking for new agency, departmental or professional membership organizations to join our growing list of Academy partners. Becoming a partner with us provides you the opportunity for your logo to be displayed on the cover of our student materials. We feel it is important for our students to see this kind of professional endorsement for the Academy and their efforts in undertaking their essential training.
