Online Law Enforcement Continuing Education Courses

Enroll in Classes

KCKCC offers an online in-service training, Spanish for Law Enforcement, year-round. The course offers instructor-led or self-paced options. Only twenty (20) hours of training via tested online e-Learning instructional training hours may be applied toward partial satisfaction of the annual in-service training requirement.

For more information or to register for the course visit the KCKCC Spanish for Law Enforcement Registration website or call 913-288-7438.

Field Training Officer (FTO)

Course Request

In-service credit may also be earned by teaching/instructing law enforcement courses, or by delivering law enforcement training as an approved Field Training Officer (FTO). Requirements for each of these sources are listed below:

  • The officer is recognized and approved, in advance, as being qualified to instruct the subject matter by the provider of the training
  • The course taught relates directly to a law enforcement topic
  • The course is taught, in a classroom environment, to at least one other officer; courses of "self-instruction" are not acceptable for in-service training credit

Instructor credit shall be granted only in those instances where officers teach other officers or other officers are included in the instructor's audience. Instruction delivered to non-law enforcement audiences will not be applied toward satisfaction of the annual in-service training requirement. For example, a class taught by an officer to a public-school class does not qualify as instructor credit for in-service training purposes.

Only twenty (20) hours of instructor credit may be used to satisfy the annual in-service training requirement. In other words, an officer who instructs other officers for 20 hours must also obtain 20 hours as a student.

If you are interested in teaching or instructing an in-service training as a Field Training Officer (FTO) at Kansas City Kansas Community College, please complete a KCKCC Community Education Course Request. KCKCC’s Community Education Coordinator, Janel Sanders, will contact you to discuss your course request in more detail.
