FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to Two FLETC Programs

For Immediate Release
Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) Criminal Investigator Training Program (CITP) and the Law Enforcement Fitness Coordinator Training Program (LEFCTP) at the April 19, 2018 meeting in Glynco, GA.

The CITP provides, on an interagency basis, a program of instruction that fulfills the basic criminal investigative training requirements necessary for responsible and competent job performance. Rather than being agency-specific, the program addresses common knowledge, skills and abilities that are expected of all investigators. The CITP is designed to meet these training needs as identified through systematic program monitoring in the form of validation studies and continuous research, which includes feedback from partner organizations. The CITP consists of 56 training days with a total of 482.15 training hours that includes 33 after-hours training.

The LEFCTP is designed to present the student with information concerning health and wellness, strength and conditioning, physical fitness assessment and testing protocol. The student will receive instruction in program design, basic anatomy, exercise physiology, exercise leadership, injury prevention, nutrition and basic strength movements. The LEFCTP is eight training days in length and it is offered several times a year. The program is taught to FLETC instructors, partner organization personnel, as well as to State, Local, Rural, and Tribal personnel.

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.
