FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to the USCG MLEFC

For Immediate Release

FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to the USCG MLEFC

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the United States Coast Guard (USCG) Maritime Law Enforcement Academy, Maritime Law Enforcement Facilitator Course (MLEFC) at the November 16, 2023, meeting.

The purpose of the MLEFC is to prepare MLEA facilitators to deliver effective and efficient facilitated training to support the LE mission of the USCG. The MLEFC uses a variety of instructional methods to deliver and demonstrate facilitation training techniques. Students demonstrate knowledge of each competency using skill checks and demonstrate the ability to implement them by preparing for and delivering practice scenarios, feedback, and evaluation. The MLEFC is three instructional days and consists of 24 hours of instructions. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 22.

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.
