For Immediate Release

FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to the USC IPPT

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Federal Probation and Pretrial Academy, Probation and Pretrial Services Office, Initial Probation and Pretrial Training Program (IPPT) at the November 16, 2023, meeting.

The purpose of the IPPT is to train newly appointed probation and pretrial services officers to perform the core duties of their positions in the safest manner possible. The IPPT is six weeks (29 instructional days) and consists of 220 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 24.

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.
