  • Reciprocity to other states

    Anyone have a running list and training requirements for transfer to other states?

    Also curious how MN POST skills compares in hours to other states requirements?

    Thanks!

    Each state will have its guidelines posted. It would be a waste of time and effort to write up a list when it's so easy to find.
    Now go home and get your shine box!

      For Wisconsin, go to:

      https://wilenet.org

      Clink on Training and Standards link. I can tell u from experience that WI's version of the POST test is 3 times harder than MN's test. I was fortunate to pass the reciprocity test on the first try but I was told it's not uncommon for people to fail it multiple times. If u don't pass it within the deadline, u have to go to the full academy - at least for those that have previous exp.

        The State of Washington requires laterals to go through a two week equivalency academy in order to get commissioned (licensed). Once you get hired by an agency, you have up to a year to go through the academy, or at least it was a year the last time I checked.

        A lot of departments out here prefer laterals, quicker to hit the street. Entry level can take close to a year to go "solo".

        Pay is higher, a lot of departments give education incentives ( get bonus pay for a college degree), more departments issue take home squads, and little to no snow in Western Washington.

          You can challenge tcleose in Tx, but most departments worth working for still have an academy
          In Valor there is hope
