Continuing Education Credits for License Renewal

Peace officers and part-time peace officers must successfully complete 48 hours of law enforcement related continuing education every three years during their license renewal period. 
Licensees may be randomly selected for a Continuing Education Review.  If selected, the licensee must verify successful completion of the required hours of continuing education for their license renewal.  POST recommends officers maintain their own documentation to prove successful completion of their required credits.
Once the license renewal requirements are met, POST will issue a license to each officer who has submitted the appropriate fee and completed the required hours of continuing education on or before the June 30 deadline. The license will be valid for three years.
