For Immediate Release

FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to the DCSA CDSE BITD FBITP

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA), Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE), Background Investigations Training Division (BITD), Federal Background Investigator Training Program (FBITP) at the November 3, 2022, meeting.

The purpose of the FBITP is to provide investigators with the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to achieve their major job accomplishment, which is to perform an efficient, effective, accurate, timely, and complete investigation that meets agency requirements. The FBITP is an eight-week virtual instructor-led program conducted entirely online via an approved virtual platform. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 26.

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.
