Fall 2017 represents LERTA's 11th session since the Academy offered its first class in September 2012. The Law Enforcement Regional Training Academy, operating under the authority of Chief Theresa Stephens-Lock, Executive Director of MCC's Department of Public Safety, offers an excellent educational opportunity for individuals interested in pursuing law enforcement careers.
LERTA is a 16-week, intensive program that meets the Michigan Commission of Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) training requirements and prepares students for the Law Enforcement Licensing Examination. LERTA holds two sessions each year, designed to coincide with the Fall and Winter Semesters at MCC.
LERTA is a professional learning environment designed to give the basic training and education needed to begin a career in law enforcement. Academic excellence and personal integrity are stressed during the Academy. Recruits are mentally and physically challenged on a daily basis. The learning environment is a combination of traditional classroom instruction, skill area instruction and practical exercises conducted by members of the LERTA staff as well as regional instructors.
The LERTA is conducted during MCC's Fall and Winter Semesters (1 training class/semester). Those interested in enrollment in the Law Enforcement Regional Training Academy are strongly encouraged to review the MCOLES Requirements for Law Enforcement Officers at www.michigan.gov/mcoles.
