The Learning Technology Resources (LTR) Bureau features POST's Learning Portal which is dedicated to researching and developing advanced technology for training law enforcement.
LTR Programs and Services
The Learning Portal is a secure website for California peace officers, dispatchers, and law enforcement instructors. It provides 24/7 access to many of the products developed by LTR:
- Distance learning including self-paced courses and training videos to be facilitated
- Did You Know? videos
- Instructor/AICP resources
Access is free to California law enforcement in the POST program. The courses are engaging and relevant on topics such as De-escalation: Enhancing Strategies for Everyday Encounters, Domestic Violence Complaints, Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse, First Aid/CPR/AED, Gun Violence Restraining Orders, Human Trafficking, Strategic Communications, as well as dispatcher-focused courses. Many of the courses meet Legislative and/or POST training mandates.
Some distance learning course completions are automatically posted to the student’s POST training profile for Continuing Professional Training (CPT) credit. Details about CPT credit is provided in the Learning Portal description for each topic.
Training Video Program
Post-developed video programs provide high-quality, in-service training to local law enforcement agencies in the POST program. Each topic-specific video is carefully designed to assist law enforcement training managers and instructors in meeting timely training needs and, if applicable, legislative or POST mandates. The video-based trainings are used by agencies in the POST program to satisfy CPT requirements at a fraction of the cost and staff time required for traditional classroom training.
Training videos are designed to be facilitated by the presenter in a classroom, briefing setting, or individual facilitation. Most training videos are eligible for 2 hours of CPT credit.
