Training Managers

Are you a new training manager?

The training manager’s responsibilities may include oversight of department staff’s training compliance or the preparation and maintenance of course certifications.

POST Regional Consultants’ Role

POST’s Regional Consultants work directly with agencies and training managers by assisting with the course certification requests and processes, advising on training requirements, and conducting regular audits. Regional Consultants are available for contact by training managers should any questions arise.

Available Training for Training Managers

POST’s Training Administrators Course (TAC) provides training managers and course coordinators with training on the POST course certification process maintained in the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and the requirements for presentation. The course covers the entire certification process, relevant POST procedures and regulations. The course is presented by POST Regional Consultants who oversee most of POST’s certified training courses. Newly assigned training managers or administrators who will manage courses in EDI are encouraged to complete the Training Administrator's Course Request.

The Training Coordinator Course (TCC) is a two-day course intended for training staff who have responsibilities for coordinating department/agency training requirements, course certification, and presentations. This training provides students with detailed information on course certification including new course submittal, modifications of existing courses, presentation scheduling, roster entry, and the Resume Builder and Resume Manager. Also, familiarizes students with the POST website, relevant regulations; legislative training mandates; compliance audits; and resources including the Learning Portal and the POST Course Catalog. 

The Training Managers Course (TMC) is designed to provide law enforcement training managers with the knowledge, theories, skills, and insights essential to successfully carrying out the management of training within modern law enforcement organizations. The course will address the following: The Training Manager’s role, developing and implementing a training plan, POST – the organization and its service delivery system, POST compliance, legal issues associated with training, determining individual and organizational training needs, and training records management.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

EDI provides authorized users with access to process records within the POST database on behalf of their agency or course presenter.  Agencies have the ability to perform online transactions and reports related to appointment notices, training compliance, profiles, reimbursement, and SBSLI. The functions available to course presenters focus on course certification, along with course presentation and roster entry.

Training Requirements – Legislatively Mandated

POST has created two quick reference documents to assist the field in locating Legislatively Mandated Training requirements — Refresher and Specialized — for officers while employed with a law enforcement agency.

Training-Related Regulations

Minimum standards for training are specified in Commission Regulation 1005. This regulation covers basic, field training, supervisory, management, executive, Continued Professional Training, and Perishable Skills Training requirements. Additionally, Regulation 1081 provides training managers and departments with an overview of standards mandated by the Legislature.

Training Manager Network on Learning Portal

The Training Manager Network (TMN) on the POST Learning Portal is no longer available to the field with the transition of the new Learning Management System, Blackboard, effective August 2023.  

POST is currently working on new means to provide information which was previously found on the TMN.
