  • Tennessee POST Approval

    SCPSDI Public Safety Programs, which are OSHA, NFPA and ISO compliant, are now Tennessee POST approved, in accordance with training regulations, there are two avenues available. The first one would be to travel to South Carolina or one of our scheduled course sites, then all the officer(s) would have to do is to attend, be issued a certificate of completion, return to their agency and fill out a specialized training substitution form and submit to POST for in-service credit. The second option would be for your agency to sponsor the training and submit the proper paperwork necessary for POST.
