The Certification Unit of the Police and Correctional Training Commissions is tasked with maintaining the certification records of sworn law enforcement and correctional officers. This includes police officers, sheriff’s deputies, State and county correctional officers, mandated non-uniformed staff, parole and probation agents, and mandated staff from the Department of Juvenile Services. The unit also maintains records for both police and correctional instructors across the state.

All entrance-level and in-service training programs are reviewed by the staff of the Certification Unit. The unit is also responsible for reviewing and approving training programs for Security Guards and Special Police Officers.

When employees are hired, promoted, placed on non-officer status, resign or have other changes in their status, agencies are required to submit documentation to the Commission. All submissions must be submitted using our fillable PDF forms, online queues and our group email boxes to expedite your requests. There is no requirement to mail a second copy of the documents.

For more information, please contact the appropriate inbox below, or reference the Contact Us page . Additional information regarding Certification procedures can be found in the Training Coordinator Orientation videos. Any forms associated with Certification, to include Application for Certification (AFC), Notice of Personnel Action (NPA), Instructor Certification documents and much more, can all be found on our Forms page.
