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
Fall 2019 Dates: August 11, 2019 – December 6, 2019
In collaboration with the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), Golden West College (GWC) is pleased to announce a Specialized Investigators’ Basic Course (SIBC) is being planned for Fall 2019. The course is full time, approximately 686 hours of instruction for 17 weeks and complies with CA Penal Code sections 13510.5 and 832.25.
At this time, the “Contract Education” model adopted for recent classes will not be utilized; therefore, agencies are not required to enter into a contract with the District and the fees have been adjusted to reflect this change. Students with a passing grade will receive 24.5 units of college credit. A POST Certificate will only be awarded upon successful completion of all requirements established by POST standards for the SIBC and GWC course requirements.
The registration cost for each participant is $1,847.00 and parking fees. Registration includes tuition, material fees, range fees, health fee and a college service fee. Additional costs for 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 attached documents for additional information.
