FLETA Board Grants Accreditation to the USN MA A School

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted accreditation status to the Master-at-Arms “A” School, Naval Technical Training Center, Lackland, Center for Security Forces, United States Navy at the November 3, 2022, meeting.

The purpose of the MA A School is to teach knowledge and skills needed to perform the duties and responsibilities of a U.S. Navy Master-at-Arms. The target audience for the program is Navy accession-level personnel and journeyman flee returnees. The MA A School is 35 instructional days/49 calendar days and consists of 280 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 28, with a capacity of 60.

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.
