This course fulfills the California Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) requirements for students seeking to extend their POST law enforcement academy certificate. It is designed for students who have successfully completed a POST-certified Regular or Special Investigators' Basic Course, the Basic Course Waiver (BCW) process, or have a three-year or longer break in qualifying employment from a California law enforcement employer for which the position required completion of the Regular Basic Course (RBC) or Specialized Investigators Basic Course (SIBC) training.
The course addresses critical manipulative skills related to officer safety or civil liability in areas that persons are most likely to experience reduced proficiency. Additionally, the course will focus on contemporaneous critical subject matter relative to law enforcement. The instructional techniques used focus on the modern science of learning and will include lecture, scenario based training and other interactive activities. Students will be provided instruction on cognitive material, such as changes in the law, ethics, and sexual harassment as well as manipulative /psychomotor skills (e.g. arrest control, firearms). Other topics include Principled Policing in the Community, Use of Force / De-escalation, People with Disabilities, and Critical Incidents.
Based upon local demand by law enforcement agencies, POST, and the Yuba College Administration of Justice Advisory Board, projections are 30 students per course. At this time, Yuba College would like to present two courses a year.
There is a constant demand in California for this requalification course. There is a critical need of law enforcement personnel throughout the state, and this course plays a vital role in establishing a significant source of candidates to fill that need. This course is notable in that it immediately extends the certification of employment upon completion. POST has made numerous requests for Yuba College to present this course, and Yuba would be among a very limited number of presenters in the state.
