As many of you know I am eager to be a officer. So while waiting I am full time security. I am looking for any free training I can get on my own. Some people have mentioned that the department of Homeland security and FEMA offer training classes. Any one have any recommendations or comments about these courses. or know of any other training I can obtain on my own.


Thanks for helping

A few questions.


1. What state are you in?


2. How old are you?


3. What kind of formal education do you have?


4. Do you have anything in your past that would be frowned upon by a police agency?

I'd suggest taking some N.I.M.S. (National Incident Management and I forget what the S is for) classes. They are online and free. Sign up to become a member of a local Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT) if there are any in your community. Many of these are put on by local fire departments and also have police officers as class members.

Most law enforcement training outside of basic academy classes are for sworn law enforcement personnel only. You'll get plenty of training after you're hired for an agency. Work on your degree. If you can get a bachelor's, go for it. You can also try to get on as a reserve for an agency. That is the best way to get free training that I know of.

Check in with the CC or local University about jobs and hiring.  You can dispatch until 21 and then apply for a sworn position?  If you are going to CC, sometimes they don't have School Police, but check with a local University that does have a Police Department and while you apply for further degree pursuit, apply for that agency.  Being a University Officer is unique and rewarding.  I work part-time as a University Police Officer and the University that I work for offers one paid three hour class a year to its employees.  That will ease the pocket book a might.  Others may have the same or similar perks to the job.  Keep that in mind when it gets close to the 21st B-Day.  Best of luck...

 Here's what I recommend:


1) Get the degree. Even if a department doesn't require it, having one is to your advantage. 


2) Exercise, train hard, get in shape and stay that way. 


3) Focus on good test preparation, it's necessary to score well.
