Certain modules have been approved by the Peace Officers Standards and Training Board (POST) for one POST credit each.  If you wish to receive POST credits for approved modules, you will be required to log on with a user name/password and profile that is unique to you and contains your first and last name.  If you have not yet obtained an individual ID and would like one, contact Linda Muchow (Alex Tech) at 320-762-4539.

NOTE:  When viewing a module for POST credit, you must go through the entire module.  Module use is tracked; if you do not view the entire module, Alex Tech will not be able to support your records if audited by the POST Board.
