The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the U.S. Army Military Police School, Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent Course (CIDSAC) at the November 5, 2020 meeting.
The purpose of the CIDSAC is to train newly selected and qualified soldiers and civilians as Special Agents. The course includes federal and military law, advanced investigative theory and practice, interview and interrogation techniques, special police operations, and programs unique to the CIDSAC. The course is 75 instructional days and consists of 567 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 30.
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.
