The core curricular areas are defined as follows:

  • Beginning January 1, 2017, Missouri POST is going to an annual reporting requirement for continuing law enforcement education. Peace officers licensed prior to January 1, 2017, to include those officers licensed prior to January 1, 2015, must obtain 24 hours of continuing education within calendar year 2017, with at least 8 of these 24 hours coming from an "Approved Provider" of training. Of these 24 hours, officers must obtain a minimum of:
  • 2 hours in Legal Studies.
  • 2 hours in Technical Studies.
  • 2 hours in Interpersonal Perspectives.
  • 2 hours of Skill Development in the area of Firearms.
  • 16 hours of Electives (Any of the above-listed core curricula areas.)
  • 1 hour of Racial Profiling training, which typically fits within the Interpersonal Perspectives block of instruction. Racial Profiling training is part of the required 24 hours, not in addition to it.

The cost for continuing education classes will vary. Most classes offered will be provided free to those officers belonging to a member agency. For free classes, officers from non-member agencies will be charged a $10.00 fee to receive a POST Certificate. If a class is presented by an organization from outside the greater St. Louis area, there may be a charge for members. When there is a fee for a given class, we request that the payment be made before the class is presented or tendered just before the class begins. Individuals who are signing up for classes who are not an active law enforcement officer, in order to hold a seat, a payment of half the tuition will be required to be received at least two weeks before the start of the class. These deposits are non-refundable. Reimbursement to non-member agencies will be made for those officers who do not show up for training if we receive a cancellation notice at least 24 hours before the scheduled start of the class.
