The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted accreditation status to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Training Center Law Enforcement Federal Air Marshal Service, Advanced Resolution Conversation (ARC) at the November 7, 2019 meeting in Glynco, GA.
The purpose of the ARC is to provide participants with a standardized communications model for conducting informal interviews when employing TSA policies and procedures currently used in the workplace. This training focuses on the ARC five-step interview model specifically developed for the TSA workforce as an enhanced skillset to aid and assist in making a final determination when administering alarm resolution procedures. The ARC is four instructional days and consists of 32 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.
