  • CA POST good in other states?

    Q - does the CA POST certificate carry over/transfer to other states? reason being, might have to move out of state and was wondering if I'd have to re-test with, for ex, Colorado POST or Florida POST.

    thanks

    Dunno bout Colorado or Florida, but in Maryland we have what is known as comparative compliance. A 6 week mini academy basically just to get you up to speed on MD law...

      It depends on how long you have had your POST, full time or not and the state you are going to. Most states will allow you to take a test to bypass a state required academy and then take a short course dealing with state law.

        In South Carolina we send you to a three week legal’s with an easy 100 question test, also part of the instruction is our EVO training, constantly ranked as one of the best in the country.

          In MD there is no post test waiver have to do comparative compliance if out of state certified. In fact, if in state certified and out of LE for less then three years, you would simply do in service to get certification re-instated. If out of LE for more then 3 yrs but less than 5(MD Certified), you would also have do do the comparative compliance. If out of LE for more then 5 yrs, full academy.

            It looks like Florida will honor CA POST certification, but you have to take a test.

            As for Colorado, I am sure Keith M can tell you.

              CA POST is the platinum standard in police training. I don't see why it wont be accepted anywhere in the country. Of course you will have to go through an abbreviated course to learn the new laws and policy/procedures of that out of state agency. Federal agencies are different though, no exemptions.

                Oregon and Washington honors CA POST. You just need to attend a course for their PCs.

                  I know that in MN you can take a POST Reciprocity exam with a certain number of years experience as a LEO. The experience requirement depends on your level of education (HS, AA/AS, BA/BS).

                    Most states probably have a out of state test and it will be good

                      MPCTC Reqs. Md.

                      Previously Certified in another State

                      If you were previously certified in another state you must provide the following documentation at the time of application:

                      Certificate of completion from a state accredited police academy
                      Detailed course syllabus of your entry level training with an hourly breakdown of course content. (Note: in-service training courses or any supplemental training hours need not be submitted)
                      Once received, the documentation will be submitted to the MPCTC for review and approval. This is done on a case-by-case basis and the applicant is responsible for supplying the documentation.

                      If approved for initial certification with the MPCTC the applicant would still be required to complete a five week "Comparative Compliance" course which includes law updates indigenous to the State of Maryland.
                      Certified or Previously Certified with a Federal Law Enforcement Agency:

                      In most circumstances applicants that attended a federal law enforcement academy that was less than 5-6 months in duration are not eligible. For example, an 8-10 week basic academy at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) would fall short of state minimums and the applicant would not be considered for lateral hire status.
                      If the applicant has completed an extended comprehensive academy at FLETC (i.e. United States Secret Service, US Customs, US Capitol Police) they may be eligible for lateral hire status.
                      The applicant is responsible for submitting proof of attendance in the form of a certificate of successful completion and a detailed course syllabus of the academy course curriculum. This will be submitted to the MPCTC for approval for initial certification. If approved, the applicant would be required to complete a five week "Comparative Compliance" course to qualify for initial certification.
                      You are NOT eligible for lateral hire status if:

                      You are a Correctional Officer who has not completed a full Police Academy. (Correctional Academy Training is not sufficient).
                      You hold a "Special Police" commission.
                      You hold a "Private Investigators" license
                      You were a Military Police Officer
                      You were or are a Reserve Officer or Reserve Sheriff's Deputy

                            One of the reason is that Hawaii is not recognized by POST as meeting the minimum training standards and Hawaii response is screw the rest of you then.

                              It varies greatly depending on where you go...I was told by WA and MT that I would simply need to "challenge" their POST by taking a test and would then have to complete a two week training course at a state academy within one year of being hired. But in ID, I would have to complete the entire academy over. Go figure.
