Law Enforcement Training Academy (CCL)

Program Information

The Glendale Community College Law Enforcement Training Academy is fully certified by the Arizona Peace Officer Standards Training Board (AZPOST), which is the peace officer certification agency in the state. The Academy is approximately ten (10) months in length (over two semesters) with recruits attending two nights per week and all day on Sunday. Recruits who attend the academy are sponsored by police departments or are unsponsored open enrollment recruits. Upon successful completion of the academy, the sponsored recruits receive full peace officer certification. The open enrollment recruits await sponsorship or employment before full certification is achieved.

The program is a challenging and very demanding curriculum, requiring physical and intellectual stamina. However, the certification attained allows successful participants to enter an exciting and rewarding career.
