The FLETA Board presented the first team leader and assessor certifications during the FLETA Board Meeting on April 19, 2018 in Glynco, GA. The new certification process recognizes those volunteers who complete all training, on-the-job requirements, and serve as an assessor or team leader on three FLETA assessments.
Since 2003, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation Office of Accreditation has trained over one thousand accreditation assessors. Assessors and team leaders are volunteers from participating agencies, and perform assessments as a collateral duty. The Office of Accreditation manages the assessment process on behalf of the FLETA Board. The OA began tracking participation of assessors and team leaders for recognition after the Board approved the process at the November 1-3, 2016 meeting.
