The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Instructor Development Course (IDC) and the Supervisory Leadership Training (SLT) at the November 7, 2019 meeting in Glynco, GA.
The IDC is intended for ICE employees, usually subject matter experts (SMEs) with little or no formal training experience, who have been assigned to instructor roles. A secondary target population for this course is ICE employees, who serve in an outreach role providing presentations or conducting public speaking. Preference is giving to those assigned to teach basic training courses or courses accredited through the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) body. The goal of the IDC is for graduates of the course to be able to deliver a program of instruction. The IDC is five instructional days and consists of 40 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is eight.
The purpose of the SLT is to provide new ICE supervisors with the fundamental competencies and skills that contribute to successful job performance. The content of the program addresses behaviors that are aligned with OPM’s Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs), as appropriate for the program audience, and those skills that are necessary to complete tasks associated with ICE policies, procedures, and legal requirements related to the position of a new supervisor. The SLT is five instructional days and consists of 40 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.
