Part-Time Officer Basic Training
Email Coordinator Dan Ryan
Part-Time Officer Basic Training is available ONLY to officers who have already been hired and sworn in by an Illinois police department for a part-time police officer position. We cannot accept civilians, auxiliary, non-sworn officers, sworn officers hired for full-time status, or officers who have previously successfully passed the full-time academy. No officer may enroll for this training on his/her own. Enrollment must come through the employing agency. Part-Time Hours VS Full-Time Hours <--This explains the difference between a full-time and a part-time officer. PT Basic Training Student Rules <-- Rules for students enrolled in MTU #10 Part-Time Basic Training Program.
Any opinions expressed, outside of the curriculum, during training sessions are exclusively those of the individual instructor or student, and do not necessarily reflect the beliefs, attitudes, and/or opinions of the Law Enforcement Training Advisory Commission Advisory Board and/or Staff.
Please bear in mind that while attending training, you are in an academic setting. Therefore, it is expected that ideas, opinions, and real-life examples may be used as an aide in emphasizing the learning objective to students. The classroom should be considered a "safe zone" where all discussion/conversation should remain confidential. Students should feel safe to ask questions and "kick around" ideas in this setting.
It is not the intention to criticize or offend anyone either in the classroom, or in the community, however, there may be times when a comment is made which might be interpreted by some as offensive. We ask that you bear in mind that hindsight is 20/20, and that lessons are often learned by dissecting and evaluating the actions of ourselves and others which may have contributed to an avoidable situation. Using these kinds of examples is invaluable to the learning process. Please remember that real life examples are used as a learning tool, and not as a personal commentary or criticism of the event and/or those involved.

A part-time officer, in Illinois, is one who works between 1 and 1560 hours per year.
The entire packet of enrollment forms must be completed, and the POWER test must be successfully passed to enroll a part-time officer in the Part-Time Officer Basic Training Course. If you have already submitted enrollment forms to the Illinois Law Enforcement Training & Standards Board, please provide us with a copy of those forms as well. A list of forms is provided on the cover sheet of the enrollment packet. No applicant will be processed without complete paperwork. (PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SEND THE ORIGINAL COPY OF THE OFFICER'S FORM E TO THE IL LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING & STANDARDS BOARD. MTU #10 gets a COPY of the officer's Form E.)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: THERE HAS BEEN SOME CONFUSION IN THE PAST REGARDING AN OFFICER'S ORIGINAL DATE OF HIRE. EACH OFFICER IN ILLINOIS HAS ONLY ONE ORIGINAL DATE OF HIRE AS A PART-TIME OFFICER. ALL DEADLINES ARE BASED UPON THAT ORIGINAL DATE OF HIRE.
FOR INSTANCE: IF OFFICER JOHN DOE IS HIRED BY DEPARTMENT "A" ON 1/1/15 AS A PART-TIME OFFICER, AND RESIGNS OR IS RELIEVED OF DUTY WITH DEPARTMENT "A" FOR ANY REASON, 1/1/15 IS STILL HIS ORIGINAL DATE OF HIRE AS A PART-TIME OFFICER. IF HE IS LATER HIRED BY DEPARTMENT "B" AS A PART-TIME OFFICER ON 4/1/15, OFFICER DOE STILL HAS UNTIL 7/1/15 TO PASS THE POWER TEST AND BE ENROLLED IN A PT BASIC TRAINING CLASS AND STILL HAS 18 MONTHS FROM 1/1/15 TO COMPLETE THE BASIC TRAINING COURSE. OFFICER DOE DOES NOT BASE ANY DEADLINES UPON THE SECOND DATE OF HIRE WITH DEPARTMENT "B".
If the officer does not complete his/her basic training requirement within 18 months of his/her date of hire, he/she is no longer eligible to be hired as a part-time officer in the State of Illinois. The officer's only other option would be to get hired by a department at full-time status and be sent to the full time officers' basic training at one of the state certified academies.
P.O.W.E.R. TEST (PEACE OFFICER WELLNESS EVALUATION REPORT)
Applicants are required by ILETSB to successfully pass the "agility" test requirements outlined in the POWER Test pamphlet within 6 months of their original date of hire. The test is scheduled and conducted on a quarterly basis, usually on a Saturday. P.O.W.E.R. test dates will be posted on the LETAC website. In addition to the requirement of passing the POWER test within 6 months of their date of hire, applicants are required to pass the P.O.W.E.R. test within 45 days of the START of the Part-Time Officer Basic Training Course. This means that an officer who has already passed a P.O.W.E.R. test given more than 45 days before the start date of the next Part-Time Officer Basic Training Course, or given by anyone besides the designated MTU P.O.W.E.R. test administrator, must take MTU #10's final P.O.W.E.R. test again and achieve a passing score to be admitted into the program. There are four basic tests each applicant is required to pass, based upon age, sex, and weight. The requirements are outlined in the pamphlet. Please urge your officer to practice the P.O.W.E.R. test requirements prior to the scheduled test date.
Applicants failing all or part of the P.O.W.E.R. test will be granted the opportunity to retake the part(s) failed, within 72 hours, or at the availability of the testing officer. If the applicant fails to retake, the applicant will not be admitted to the program. Experience reveals: Of those failing the P.O.W.E.R. test, the majority were unable to pass the 1.5 mile run within the time allocated the applicant according to his/her age.
BASIC TRAINING TUITION FEE
Effective July 1, 1999, police agencies will be assessed a tuition fee dependent upon the number of officers enrolled in the training. You will be informed of the fee prior to the officer’s enrollment. The tuition fee, not including the officer’s salary and travel expenses, may be reimbursed to the agency when the officer successfully completes the training program, and a claim for reimbursement has been submitted to the Illinois Law Enforcement Training & Standards Board - This is the same procedure used for the full-time officer Basic Training Academy. For your convenience, the reimbursement form has been included in the application packet. Tuition checks must be made payable to LETAC, MTU #10, and received in the Springfield office by the date requested. Training Board rules stipulate that the agency, not the applicant, must pay the tuition fee.
On more than one occasion in the past, in violation of the Training Board rules, an applicant paid the tuition fee to the agency, and upon resignation or dismissal from the training program, the applicants called the Coordinator requesting reimbursement. Tuition fee reimbursements will be paid only to the officer’s employing agency. The applicants and their departments are required to sign a Statement of Understanding and Certification attesting to the fact that they understand this rule.
An orientation will be conducted at a scheduled time and place. It is mandatory for applicants to attend the class orientation. Experience reveals that applicants failing to attend the orientation program had problems navigating the online training and deciphering which lessons to complete for the month. During the orientation, students are given an overview of the program, hands-on computer training, pre/post test procedures, and student rules of conduct. During this orientation, students are provided with their study assignments for the first module.
Officers will be required to report to all Saturday sessions dressed in uniform. The only exception to this will be Saturday sessions scheduled for a full day of Control and Arrest Tactics training. During those training sessions, officers should report dressed in workout attire.CLASSROOM CONDUCT Officers are to conduct themselves, at all times, in a professional manner. If an officer's conduct is ever perceived as out of line by the Program Coordinator, he/she may be dismissed from the program immediately. This is at the sole discretion of the MTU's Part-time Basic Training Program Coordinator.
We encourage students to devote a minimum of 16 hours per week to their online training.
Students failing their module study assignments by the scheduled Saturday training session, will not be allowed to take that module's examination with the rest of the class. The student will be allowed an additional 7 days to complete their work, and at that time will be allowed to take the exam. Makeup sessions will be at the discretion of the Coordinator. Failure to attend a makeup session will be cause for the student’s immediate dismissal from the program.
SATURDAY TRAINING SESSIONS
The training during the Saturday training sessions primarily includes hands-on training as follows:
8:30 a.m. -- 10:00 a.m. - Coordinator’s Administrative Time 1 (½ Hours)
10:00 a.m. -- 12:00 Noon - Lecture Topics (2 Hours)
12:00 Noon -- 1:00 p.m. - Lunch (1 Hour)
1:00 p.m. -- 5:00 p.m. - Hands-On Training (4 hours)
Attendance at Saturday training sessions is mandatory. Students who fail to attend a Saturday training session are responsible for attending a makeup session with another Mobile Team Unit, which is necessary to complete the required credit hours mandated for graduation. Law Enforcement Administrators are encouraged to support this training program by ensuring their officer attends each and every Saturday training session.
Students are responsible for maintaining and completing their student workbooks prior to each Saturday training session. Coordinator will periodically inspect the student workbooks for completion, neatness, and legibility. Students will need to review their workbooks prior to taking the final examination, administered by the Training Board staff during the final Saturday training session.
INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LAW ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATORS
Police Administrators will be notified when a student fails to complete their assignments and are required to make up an exam. Police Administrators will also receive a periodic report of their officer’s academic progress from the Program Coordinator. If the Coordinator identifies a problem with the student’s progress, achievement, conduct, or attendance, the problem will be addressed with the student. If this does not resolve the problem, the Coordinator will contact the student’s Chief Law Enforcement Administrator for assistance in resolving the issue. The Police Administrators are encouraged to call the Coordinator to inquire about the academic status of their officer, or voice any concerns about their progress in the program.
STUDENTS PROMOTED TO FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT
Part-time students enrolled in this class and promoted to full-time status while still enrolled in the PT Basic Training course must be pulled from the program and sent through the full time basic training academy. If the student is promoted to full-time status after graduating from the PT Basic Training course, his/her Chief Law Enforcement Administrator must submit a revised Notice of Appointment/Separation - Form E, with a basic training waiver request to ILETSB. The Board will then require the student be enrolled in the transition training course (offered on an "as needed" basis) for part-time officers promoted to full-time status.
There is a tuition fee for the transition course. Please contact ILETSB for registration and tuition information. Upon the officer’s graduation from the transition course, the Chief Law Enforcement Administrator should submit a reimbursement form to the Illinois Law Enforcement Training & Standards Board. The agency will then receive a reimbursement of 50% of the tuition fee, provided there are sufficient funds available to the Training Board for reimbursement of non-basic training funds.
This exam, consisting of 200 questions, will be given to each part-time officer during the final Saturday training session. The students are granted a maximum of 3 ½ hours to take the exam. The Board will notify the officer’s Chief Law Enforcement Administrator the results of the officer’s score -- either pass or fail. Officers are not to contact the Training Board or the MTU to inquire about their test scores, because the Training Board staff must first notify the Chief Law Enforcement Administrator.
