The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) Special Agent Basic Training Program (SABTP) at the November 7, 2019 meeting in Glynco, GA.
The purpose of the SABTP is to prepare Special Agents to support TIGTA’s critical and specialized mission to protect the public’s confidence in the tax system through audits, investigations, and inspections and evaluations related to the Federal tax system as administered by the IRS. SABTP is currently 18 instructional days with 136 hours of instruction. There are 24 students per class. The program is offered at least once per year at the TIGTA Training Academy located in Glynco, GA.
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.
