MTU #10 Training Calendar

REGISTRATION POLICY Full-time and Part-time sworn law enforcement officers from MTU #10 local member departments will be given registration preference until seven (7) calendar days prior to the class date. After that date, registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis unless specified otherwise in the course announcement.   (The following are NOT from MTU #10 local member departments:  state or federal officers, auxiliary officers, officers from local departments not up to date on their annual assessment, or officers of any kind from outside of MTU #10's geographical area.)  These officers, may be "bumped" from class registration in favor of MTU #10 local member officers at any time until 7 days prior to the class date.  

All registrations must be approved by the Chief, Sheriff, Training Officer, or head of your department. THIS MEANS YOU CAN NOT REGISTER YOURSELF FOR TRAINING - YOU MUST GO THROUGH YOUR CHIEF, SHERIFF, or TRAINING OFFICER. All registrations must be approved by your department, even if you are attending on your own time.

TUITION POLICY In order to share the burden of the expense of the training courses provided by MTU #10, Non-Member tuition will be charged to attend MTU #10 classes.  Non-Member tuition shall apply to State/Federal agencies and Local Law Enforcement agencies which are not a member of any MTU.  Tuition amount will be determined on a class-by-class basis, not to drop below current MTU #10 Membership Assessment fee for each day of training. 

Non-Member tuition amounts will be clearly noted on all course announcements.

Tuition will be invoiced to departments upon course completion.

NO SHOWS/CANCELLATION POLICY MTU #10 recognizes that, on occasion, agencies must cancel their planned attendance at LETAC training programs.  However, we also need to protect our oftentimes considerable contractual expenses and related investments in training.  "No shows" at LETAC training programs can have a negative effect on cash flow and can reduce much needed training revenue.  This lost revenue can never be recouped.

Most importantly, "no shows" mean an actual, calculable loss of access to LETAC training on the part of member departments.  Spots at training courses are finite, and determined by the type of class and the size and characteristics of the training facility.  "No shows" waste those spots and wasted spots can never be recovered or recouped.

It is imperative that sufficient notice of such cancellations be provided to LETAC.  In order to insure that neither space at our training programs nor our financial resources get wasted, we can replace the cancellation with a name from the standby list, or if need be, cancel the training course.

LETAC has established a fair and equitable tuition refund policy to protect its interests while causing no undue hardship on its member and non-member departments.

TUITION REFUND POLICY:  If a pre-registered student from a Non-Member agency fails to attend a LETAC program, and the agency fails to provide advance notice within 7 days of the start date of that class, the agency will be invoiced the entire amount of the student's tuition.

If a pre-registered student from a Member agency fails to attend a LETAC program with an established Member tuition fee, and the agency fails to provide advance notice within 7 days of the start date of that class, that agency will be invoiced the entire amount of the student's tuition.

If an agency is unable to provide advance notice of its intent to cancel course registration because of circumstances beyond its control, the Director will have the discretion to waive the payment of tuition fees.  Any requests to waive tuition must be made to the Director in writing.

PAST DUE INVOICES/COLLECTION If any tuition payment reaches 90 days past due, that agency will be required to pre-pay for all future registrations.  If any tuition payment reaches 150 days past due, that agency will have all training privileges through MTU #10 suspended.
