FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to USCG Program

For Immediate Release
Members from the United States Coast Guard hold the FLETA Accreditation Certificate

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the U. S. Coast Guard (USCG), Maritime Law Enforcement (MLE) Facilitator Course at the November 8, 2018 meeting in Glynco, GA.

The USCG MLE Facilitator Course is designed to prepare Maritime Law Enforcement Academy facilitators to deliver effective and efficient training to support the Law Enforcement mission of the USCG. The course uses a variety of instructional methods to deliver and demonstrate effective and efficient training techniques. Topics covered and practices include analyzing site preparation, facilitator and role player observation, feedback, and evaluation. The course is three instructional days and consists of 24 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 24.

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.
