Enrollment Process

2018 Open Enrollment

Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute (SBSLI) applications will be accepted beginning on April 2, 2018, at 8:00 a.m. Applications are submitted electronically or by U.S. mail. Agencies are encouraged to pre-check their candidates prior to completing applications via POST's Internet-based Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system.

All SBSLI applications must have been received electronically (or postmarked) by 5:00 p.m., April 27, 2018. A total of 500 applications will be accepted. A maximum of 5 applications per agency may be submitted.

Dispatch Supervisor applications will be limited to one per agency. Class assignments cannot be reserved. Submission of an application does not guarantee placement in a scheduled class.

Applications received prior to April 2nd, or after April 27th, are not accepted and will be returned to the agencies for re-submission during the next open enrollment period.

Electronic Applications

To submit applications via the Internet, agencies should use the Electronic Data Interchange system. Approved users may utilize EDI to:

  • Pre-check potential candidates from their agency for SBSLI eligibility.
  • Electronically submit qualified SBSLI applications for their agency during the open enrollment period. (POST requires that agencies keep completed (signed with original signatures) paper versions of the SBSLI applications at the agency. Do not send them to POST.)

Agencies that do not already have access to EDI for SBSLI should request EDI access as soon as possible by filling out a POST 3-101 Electronic Data Interchange Access Application (pdf). The completed form should be printed and submitted to POST via fax at (916) 227-0195, or by mail. If you have questions or need assistance with EDI, please contact our support team at (916) 227-4357.

Paper Applications

Please fill out the POST 2-122 Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute Application (doc) and send it by U.S. mail or delivery service to POST at the address on the application during the open-enrollment period. Faxed applications will not be accepted.

Further inquiries may be directed to Nani Vang, POST SBSLI Coordinator, at (916) 227-2821.
