FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. The explanation letter I received with my certificate doesn't include a breakdown of hours. What training core areas do the training hours belong to?
A. MCTC courses are Missouri POST certified through Missouri's reciprocal agreement with Minnesota. Unfortunately, Minnesota doesn't track their hours by the same Core Areas as Missouri Post. The above document has some recommendations, but ultimately it is up to your agency to determine how to apply your hours. From the Missouri Post website:
Approved Out-of-State Continuing Education Providers (Effective 1/1/2021 to 12/31/2023)
- North Carolina
- IADLEST Approved Courses
To qualify for continuing education credit, the attending officer must maintain a diploma or other indicia, indicating that the officer attended and successfully completed the continuing education course. In addition, the attending officer must obtain some form of affirmation indicating that the POST Program from any of the above listed states recognizes the course the officer attended.
To qualify for continuing education credit for the 2021 CLEE reporting period, and all subsequent annual CLEE reporting periods, the attending officer must forward the following documents to the Missouri POST Program:
- A diploma or certificate indicating the officer attended and successfully completed a continuing education course approved for continuing education credit in one or more of the states listed above;
- Some form of documentation indicating that the POST Program from any of the above listed states recognized the course for continuing education credit in that state; and
- An agenda, course overview, training flyer, or similar documentation describing the course attended by the officer. If not already provided to the officer, the officer should request this documentation from the training provider.
Based on the content of the course reflected in #3 above, a representative of the POST Program will work with the attending officer to determine in what core area(s) the training hours should be awarded in. The POST Program Representative will then enter the training hours into the CLEE system for the officer, starting with the 2021 CLEE reporting period."
