  In-Service Training    February 8, 2016

In-Service Training


The Academy is generally open Tuesday-Friday from 0600-1630 hours.  In-Service Training classes are held from 0700-1530 hours unless posted differently on the training calendar.  Occasionally, the Academy will be open Mondays to accommodate 5 day/40 hour courses.

The Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Training Academy In-Service Training offers over 130 different programs with multiple presentation dates throughout the training year.  All of our In-Service programs contribute to satisfying the mandated hours of In-Service training required for re-certification by the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).  DCJS requires 34 hours of general instruction, 4 hours legal instruction, and 2 hours of cultural diversity training every 2 years. 

While most In-Service training is conducted at the Academy, a gradually increasing segment of training courses are being scheduled for agency-approved satellite training sites. These sites will be listed in the course description on the training calendar.  For record-keeping information, contact the In-Service Administrative Assistant at x301. Please contact the coordinators listed on the In-Service Training Staff page for specific course information and registration.

The Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Training Academy, Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy and Prince William County Criminal Justice Academy have entered into a reciprocal agreement whereby each academy and their personnel would be eligible to receive training at each other's training academies. The enabling Memorandum of Understanding lists various requirements to meet the In-Service training needs of each academy population.
