FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to the DHS I&A ITA
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Intelligence & Analysis, Intelligence Training Academy (ITA) at the November 5, 2020 meeting.
The DHS ITA designs, develops, assesses, and delivers homeland security intelligence training through a diverse set of training, education, and professional development programs for the Homeland Security Enterprise (HSE) and DHS Intelligence Enterprise (IE). The ITA supports the DHS mission by providing intelligence training to the HSE, IE, and support of the Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis (USIA) FY19 Leadership Performance Plan Goal to “create a culture of continuous learning that matures homeland security intelligence professionals through leadership training, rotational opportunities, and expertise and competency development.” Since inception, the ITA has delivered 901 training programs and trained 16,730 students across the HSE, IE, and Intelligence Community (IC).
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 Academy/Program Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, and Training Delivery. 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.
