FLETA Board Grants Accreditation to TSA Program

For Immediate Release
Close Quarter Control Tactics Instructor Training Program

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted accreditation status to the Transportation Security Administration Training Center (TSATC) Close Quarter Control Tactics Instructor Training Program (CQCTITP) at the April 19, 2018 meeting in Glynco, GA.

The purpose of the CQCTITP is to train Field Office instructors in the proper instruction of all Defensive Measures/Crew Member Self-Defense (DM/CMSD) techniques during a dynamic use of force situation. The student-instructor will learn how to instruct all defensive tactics, techniques, and self-defense through the Explain, Demonstrate, Imitate, and Practice (EDIP) methodology. The CQCTITP is 10 instructional days and consists of 80 hours of instruction.

The FLETA Board is the accrediting body for all federal law enforcement training and support programs. To achieve accreditation, agencies submit to an independent review of their academy and/or program to ensure compliance with the FLETA Standards and Procedures in the areas of Program Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, Training Delivery, and Distance Learning. Accreditation is a cyclical process occurring every five years. Each year, agencies must submit annual reports in preparation for reaccreditation, which is a new and independent review of the academy/program.
