You may not register for this course until you have submitted the Basic Academy Requalification Pre-Registration Form.

(Follow the steps in the form to request a POST Training Profile needed to register for this course)

  • After confirmed reservation the staff assistant will e-mail further college application instructions
  • 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.

  • Uniform: 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, you must complete the appropriate form, determined by your situation, found below. The form must be notarized and mailed, along with the required form fees, to DOJ. Email a copy of the signed and notarized form to us BEFORE MAILING ORIGINAL TO DOJ.
