FLETA Board Grants Accreditation to the USMC MPIC MPOBC
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted accreditation status to the United States Marine Corps (USMC), Military Police Instruction Company (MPIC), Military Police Officer Basic Course (MPOBC) at the November 3, 2022, meeting.
The purpose of the MPOBC is to provide foundational initial entry law enforcement training and Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) qualification for the Marine Corps MOS 5803 Military Police Officer. Traditional classroom instruction involving informal lecture, guided discussions, case studies, and peer teaching are regularly implemented throughout the program. The MPOBC is 70 instructional days and consists of 560 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 15.
The FLETA Board is the accrediting body for all federal law enforcement training and support programs. To achieve accreditation, training organizations submit to an independent review of their program and/or academy to ensure compliance with the FLETA Standards and Procedures in the areas of Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, and Training Delivery. Accreditation is a cyclical process occurring every five years. Each year, training organizations must submit annual reports in preparation for reaccreditation, which is a new and independent review of the program/academy.
