All POST-Certified courses have a Course Title and a Course Control Number. Each course can be certified to several presenters, and courses can be scheduled throughout the year at different locations within the state. Certified Courses can be found using the POST Catalog of Certified Courses.
Find a Specific Course:
Access the Catalog of Certified Courses, and use a word search to find a particular subject topic. If the word is contained in a Course Title or in the description, a listing of Course Titles will be displayed. You can then access the course information by selecting one of the titles listed.
If the Course Title known, the Catalog of Certified Courses provides an index of all the Certified Course Titles listed alphabetically. For more information about a specific course, contact the presenter of the course.
By Course Number (using EDI)
Certified Courses can also be obtained through the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system. Through EDI, Certified Course Presenters may view up-to-date course information, including presentation dates, locations of presentations and Course Roster status.
For course information not listed in the Course Catalog or other course-related questions, please contact the Course Control Unit by telephone at (916) 227-4860, (916) 227-4866 or (916) 227-4863.
Obtaining a Course Control Number
All course control numbers are made up of 14 numerical digits. The first four digits identify the course presenter. The second five digits identify the individual course number (i.e. “Traffic Collision Investigation” course number is “33590”). These two elements are referred to as the Course Certification Number. The last five digits are the fiscal year (two digits) followed by the presentation number (three digits). The entire 14-digit number is referred to as the Course Control Number. The Course Certification Number is given to a presenter when the course is certified, and the Course Control Number is assigned when a Course Announcement and Hourly Distribution are received.
To obtain a Course Control number, an agency or presenter can:
- Look up the course on the Catalog of Certified Courses.
- Check the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system.
- Refer to the original Course Certification Letter for the Course Certification Number, and contact the POST Course Control Unit for the complete Course Control Number.
For courses not listed in the Course Catalog or other Course-related questions, please contact the Course Control Unit by telephone at (916) 227-4860, (916) 227-4866 or (916) 227-4863.
