POST Management Course for Law Enforcement

Humboldt State University is committed to meeting your training needs while ensuring the health and safety of staff and participants. As such, given changing circumstances, we are still building our schedule for the current year.

Use the registration form to indicate your interest in attending future training sessions, and we will notify you as soon as the schedule is finalized.

The POST Management Course continues to evolve, reflecting the dynamic environment in which law enforcement managers work. Humboldt State University is dedicated to providing a valuable learning experience, covering contemporary topics. In response to ongoing input from past Management Course participants, POST consultants and leaders in the field of law enforcement, we continue to refine our program. Accordingly, we believe that you’ll find the HSU Management Course to be practical, relevant and interactive.

In the POST Management Course's 104-hour format, there are 13 days of instruction, spread over three weeks, with a minimum two-week intersession between each week of instruction. We provide a variety of instructors who offer a diversity of insight into the complex field of law enforcement management. In addition to the formal classroom instruction, you’ll have an opportunity to gain valuable insight from interaction with your peers. You will be expected to complete assignments during the intersessions, and also complete and present a group project at the end of the course.

All sessions will be hosted in Folsom at the Lake Natoma Inn, which is close to the American River and historic Old Town. We believe that this site will provide a very comfortable environment allowing you to get the most out of this important training opportunity.

I am confident that you’ll find our course to be very worthwhile for your professional growth. I hope that this website will answer some of your questions about our program, but call us should you need any additional information.
