Requalification Course Registration Info/Checklist

You may not register for this course until you complete Steps 1-3:

  1. Request your training profile from POST.  Click here for a link to the Profile Request form, including instructions.  If you have questions regarding your eligibility to requal, contact POST's Basic Training Bureau at (916) 227-4254.  General Requal information can be found on the POST website.
  2. Once you receive your Profile, email a clear scan of it to btucker@theacademy.ca.gov for approval.  Be sure to include your phone number.
  3. Once your Profile is approved, we will contact you to obtain a reservation deposit.

Do not complete any forms until we have collected your deposit.  Submission of the following documents is required prior to the course; please adhere to all noted time specifications.  Submission of forms via email is preferable.

Registration:

  • Apply to MPC College through OpenCCC (click here for instructions).
    • Once you have received both ID numbers (OpenCCC and MPC), submit them via this form.
  • Basic Academy REQUAL Cover Sheet
  • DOJ -- take this form to a Livescan location (use a law enforcement facility to avoid possible delays in your clearance). Your clearance must be dated within six months prior to the start date of the class. We need the original document that the DOJ mails back to you after your fingerprints are submitted; not the receipt the Livescan operator hands to you on the day they take your prints.  Be advised:  The DOJ does not offer expedited services.
  • Medical Exam Report -- take this to your personal physician to complete no sooner than 30 days prior to the start date of your class.
  • Scan and email a clear copy of your valid CA driver's license (or other government-issued photo ID)
  • Scan and email a clear copy of your medical insurance card (you must have coverage for the duration of the course; if you do not, contact us and we will refer you to an insurance broker)
  • PT gear (if you are local, visit our office at least one month prior to Academy start date to be fitted for your Polo shirt; if you are out of the area, email or phone in your size)
  • Final payment must be paid in full at least five (5) business days prior to start date of your course

Every recruit (including agency recruits bringing their own personal firearms) must submit proof of ownership for their firearm. Agency recruits supplied with agency firearms are exempt. If you have recently purchased a new firearm, bring in your receipt of ownership. Otherwise, submit the appropriate form below to DOJ, along with the accompanying fees, and email a copy of the form to our office.

Reference items:

  • Student Needs List -- review this doc as soon as possible, adhering to South Bay's handgun specifications and restrictions.
