CPOST provides three training categories: Field Training Observation, On-The-Job Training, and Beyond Training to the California Correctional Peace Officers.

Field Training Observation

In an effort to understand the diverse missions of CDCR and each of its facilities; CPOST is committed to visiting various facilities to see examples of their innovative training.

On-The-Job Training

CPOST has established a series of 15-minute informational, on-the-job trainings (OJT) that officers can read on-the-go or during down time. These 15-minute OJT’s are a great way for officers to learn something new in a short period of time and continue to grow professionally and personally. The OJT’s are a great resource for Sergeants to share with their officers at Watch Meetings. The 15-minute OJT’s include topics such as: suicide awareness, stress relief techniques, drone awareness, drug awareness, fire safety updates, and much more. Below is a listing of all the OJT’s that are currently available.

Each of the trainings include a BET #, which officers can submit to their In-Service-Training (IST) Offices (with a supervisor’s signature) and earn credit toward their required annual training hours. If there are any topics that you are interested in learning more about, please don’t hesitate to send us an email and let us know how we can help. We hope that you enjoy reading these trainings as much as we enjoy putting them together. CPOST is dedicated to providing continuous training and professional development opportunities for California’s correctional peace officers.
