CA POST Control # 2540-28002-19-001 / POST Plan N/A

POST has certified the 2019 WSATI Training Seminar for 24 hours of training.  POST Plan N/A: No reimbursement for travel, per diem, or tuition.  Each hour a student spent in the classroom counts toward their CPT requirement, which is 24 hours of required POST training every 24 months. 

The Training Committee (Dennis Frias, Richard Knapp, Lou Koven, and Johnny Miyasaki) did a great job in arranging all the training that was provided, as well as submitting all the classes to POST for certification and credits  A big thank you from all the attendees whose comments "the best training I've received, " were heard over and over again.  College Credits were arranged through the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium.  Thanks to Kim Collet and Marianne Miller for your assistance with both the college credits and the POST Certification.

The training began with the General Session training by Leo Bottary.  Following the first lunch break, training took place in "break-out" sessions for the remainder of the Seminar.
