State: Georgia

Status: Accreditation determined by agency

If a Georgia (GA) law enforcement agency wishes to utilize on-line training, GA POST will recognize the training as long as it is administered by a POST certified instructor. There are many quality training programs on the market and POST does not want to discourage agencies from using them. The current requirement is that a POST certified instructor within the agency has to verify that the training is law enforcement related. The officer completes the training as required, e.g., passes the end of course test and obtains a certificate of completion.  The training officer then has to report the completion to POST using the training submission cover sheet.  POST only records training in "whole" hour blocks, and no partial credit is given.  Training modules should be within 45-60 minutes for a 1 hour of training credit or have a minimum of 9000 words (not including registration information) for an officer to read for one hour of credit. If a Georgia law enforcement agency is interested in submitting modules to POST for approval, contact info@evawintl.org and staff will assist with determining the credit hours as well as tracking tests and certificates of completion.  However, the burden of submitting the online training for GA POST credit is the responsibility of each individual law enforcement agency.

If your state does not allow continuing education credit for online training, we encourage you to raise the issue with your Training Coordinator and agency leadership. Chiefs, Sheriffs, and other law enforcement leaders may need to work with the state agency that establishes standards and accredits training, to have this limitation removed.
