    The sections that follow explain the training courses and years of experience/education criterion for

    each certification. Each section has one training area and NIMS/Other, which is required for all to

    complete. There are then two separate tracks for law enforcement officers, which includes: Patrol

    and Special Response Units (SWAT, Crime Scene Technicians, EOD, etc.).

    Criterion for Basic Law Enforcement Academy Certification

    Basic Law Enforcement Academy Certification requires successful completion of a Basic Law

    Enforcement Academy of not less than 280 hours for those persons gaining Oklahoma peace officer

    certification by reciprocity agreements with other states, and not less than 300 hours for those

    persons attending a CLEET Basic Law Enforcement Academy or one approved by CLEET. In

    addition, applicants must meet the prescribed minimum employment standards as established by 70

    O.S. 3311.

    Tribal Law Enforcement Basic Academy Certification requires successful completion of a Basic Law

    Enforcement Academy recognized by the U. S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Indian

    Affairs (BIA). CLEET will verify that the Tribal Law Enforcement Basic Academy is recognized by

    the DOI/BIA.

    Basic Law Enforcement Certifications will not be issued as part of this program as they are

    automatically generated upon the completion of a Basic Law Enforcement Academy. While basic

    peace officer Certification is a mandate of 70 O.S. 3311, participation in the Law Enforcement

    Terrorism Certification Program is voluntary. However, completion of a Basic Law Enforcement

    Academy does play a role in the basic requirements for this certification program.

    Terrorism-related training is defined as:

    1. Management, continuing education, or other specialized courses that are accredited,

    sponsored, approved, or presented by the CLEET, the CLEET Law Enforcement Basic

    Academy, and all approved city academies.

    2. Departmental or other in-service training, which is recorded and documented in the

    personnel file of the officers department. These official agency training records must

    include the subject, instructor, classroom hours, sponsor, location, and dates of training.

    3. If properly documented, training completed in other states, military police training, tribal law

    enforcement training, and other specialized training may be submitted to the Council for

    evaluation and approval of terrorism-related training.
