The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) Police Basic Training Program (PBTP) at the November 7, 2019 meeting in Glynco, GA.
The purpose of the PBTP is to establish an effective, efficient, and standardized training program for police recruits by utilizing a traditional classroom setting along with a firearms range and mat room. The PBTP is 20 instructional days and consists of 160 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is six.
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.
