CA POST Control # 2540-28000-12001 / POST Plan N/A

As in the past and for all conferences, the training was certified by POST Plan N/A for Continuing Professional Training Hours only.  No reimbursement for travel, per diem, or tuition.  Each hour students spend in the classroom counts toward their CPT requirement, which is 24 hours of required POST training every 24 months. 

The Training Committee (Dennis Frias, Lou Koven, and Aristeed Powell) 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 who comments "the best training I've received, " were heard over and over again.

The training began with the General Session training by Greensboro (NC) PD Detetive Rob Finch.  Following the lunch break, training took place in "break-out" sessions for the remaining four days. 

The WSATI Southern Chapter would like to thank all the instructors who participated in this year's training.
