Police Technology Certificate

Non-Credit Program

The Beaver County Municipal Police Training Academy has teamed up with CCBC to provide the vocational training leading to certification in Police Technology.

The curriculum provides you with the 750 hours of training mandated by the Municipal Police Officers Education and Training Commission in anticipation of employment as a municipal police officer.

This program is designed to meet the Municipal Police Officers Education and Training Commission's  instructional requirements for currently employed officers as well as those seeking employment in police enforcement. Topics covered during the two semesters include physical and emotional readiness; defense tactics and handling arrested persons; motor vehicle law; patrol procedures and operations; report writing and case preparation; basic firearms; and first aid and CPR.

Upon completion of this program, students newly hired as police officers can apply for a waiver of Act 120 schooling based on their successful completion of the Commission's criteria.
