This page is a resource to access Training Providers that are private companies or agencies that are NOT registered with the LETB as certified training providers. This resource is here to help Indiana Law Enforcement Officers find online training that can be reported as part of their annual in-service training requirement. Please follow the procedure below to ensure your training is properly reported.
- Before beginning any online course from a NON-LETB provider we recommend that you verify that the course is of suitable subject matter and content for annual in-service training with your Department’s LETB Certified Instructor.
- Register for the class at the provider’s website.
- Complete all the class requirements with a passing score.
- Print the certificate of completion or other documentation that indicates your successful completion of the class.
- An LETB Certified Instructor must verify that the online class is valid training by reviewing the training objective and confirming that the training objectives were met by the student.
- The LETB Certified Instructor must print their full name, PSID number, and sign the proof of completion documentation or certificate.
- Report the training to your department Training Coordinator with a copy of the certificate.
- The Training Coordinator will report the training through Acadis as part of your annual in-service training using the LETB Certified Training Instructor’s PSID number.
LETB Guidelines for E-Training
The Law Enforcement Training Board (LETB) has established guidelines for allowing training presented primarily through electronic means to be counted for the annual 24 hour continuing education requirement for certified officers.
The responsibility for determining what type of training and the quality of the training falls to the department training officer and chief executive officer as it always has with the more conventional modes of training.
The LETB has established the following guidelines:
- The terms e-learning or e-training mean that the majority of a class is presented through an electronic means, e.g., streaming video, podcasts, CD or DVD, other computer-based or similar modes, or via television.
- The department training officer approves e-training, with the concurrence of the agency head, concerning the subject matter.
- The training officer determines if the class is of sufficient quality to meet the annual training requirements for Indiana police officers. In making this determination, the training officer could use the following criteria as well as others:
- specifically evaluate the content of the program to be employed.
- require learning or performance objectives be supplied by the provider.
- require or create an examination of student performance based on those learning goals.
- A training officer must then be satisfied that appropriate learning has occurred and may use the following approaches (or others as applicable) to make this determination:
- the training officer personally observes the student-officer taking the class at the training site.
- the training officer tests or otherwise examines the student-officer or has the officer demonstrate the skills that were to be taught.
- a post-test is given establishing that a minimum of 75% of the training objectives have been learned.
- a pre- and post-test are administered showing significant improvement of knowledge or skills for that particular subject.
- the training should be reported using the training officer's PSID number that conducted the program.
