Credit for Law Enforcement Training
Los Angeles Mission College offers credit for law enforcement academy training through the discipline of Administration of Justice for basic recruit academy training and instructional programs. Credit awarded for training must be received from public law enforcement academies and institutions which meet the standards of training of the California Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission (P.O.S.T.). Credit received for training cannot be duplicated (For example, if a law enforcement employee attended a police academy that has an agreement with a local community college, that credit for the academy training cannot be duplicated at another academic institution). Proof of graduation (P.O.S.T. certificate or academy certificate) and number of hours attended is required for the petition.
Students may petition for a single block of credit, up to 18 units, to be granted for the basic academy, based on the amount of total hours of training received. These units/hours can be applied towards courses offered in the discipline. Prior to awarding academic credit for academy training, students must complete 12 units in residency here at Los Angeles Mission College.
It is important to note that although students can apply the academy units to the required courses for the degree or certificate at the community college, those units may NOT transfer or articulate to some universities. Please consult with the Administration of Justice discipline and/or counseling for more information.
Credit by Examination
Credit by Examination may be available for some Administration of Justice courses for individuals with specified training (i.e. Homicide school). Contact the Administration of Justice discipline for further information.
