Only sworn police officers and Campus Safety Officers may attend this Phase II Equivalency.
During this second phase of training, police officers must be presented the three remaining units of the Basic Course for Police Officers: Counter-Terrorism for Recruit Police Officers; Firearms Training; and Supervised Field Training Review and Orientation. In addition to the three remaining units, each police officer must be presented Impact Device Training and Testing for at least 8 hours. 160 hours of Field Training must be completed at the employing agency.
