About the Center
The Criminal Justice Training Center, a Regional Law Enforcement Training Facility, is deeply committed to the college’s mission to deliver high-quality learning and learning-related services to students and the community we serve. Our top priority is to provide educational, vocational and technical training that will lead to transfer to a university, specialized employment, or career advancement.
All three (3) programs offered at the Criminal Justice Training Center are flexible to meet the constantly changing training needs of the law enforcement profession. These needs are established collectively and independently by Municipal, County, and State law enforcement agencies.
Furthermore, state certification standards for police officers, established and mandated by the State Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.), are constantly in transition to meet the ever-changing demands placed on law enforcement in the State of California.
Set in a non-traditional matrix, the CJTC is divided into three (3) major and complex programs, each having different and specific delivery requirements. Even though seemingly independent of each other, each program nevertheless has areas that are interwoven and interdependent with no one area more or less important than the other.
Specialized Investigator’s Basic Course (SIBC)
Contact Person: Nicole Riegel
In collaboration with the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), Golden West College (GWC) is pleased to announce a Specialized Investigator Basic Course (SIBC) is being planned for August 15, 2016, to December 9, 2016 (SIBC #57)
In order to provide the opportunity for state agencies to select SIBC for their investigators, the “Contract Education” model adopted for Classes 52 – 56 will again be utilized to present Class 57. Students will receive 18 units of college credit and a POST Certificate upon successful completion of the SIBC.
The registration cost for each participant is $5,968. It is important to note, in order to present the SIBC class at this cost, a minimum enrollment of 25 participants must be met; a shortfall will result in the class being canceled. Additional costs for materials, equipment, uniforms, and miscellaneous fees are spelled out in the following sections of this announcement. These additional costs are also the responsibility of the agency. (Please see Section H for additional agency costs.)
GWC is in the pre-planning phase for SIBC Class 57. Dean Lowenberg of the Criminal Justice Training Center and the entire training team at GWC looks forward to presenting a high-quality training experience. State and local agencies can be confident the SIBC # 57 will achieve exemplary results in staff development for the men and women serving the State of California or a County as specialized investigators. Self-sponsors are not permitted to enroll in the course.
