Professionalism through training as a Police Officer!
As a dually accredited program, the Palomar College Police Academy is the best choice for future law enforcement professionals. The Basic Police Academy Program is certified by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) and recognized by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).The Palomar College Police Academy was redesigned in 2016 as a modular training program. The modular format also meets the needs of those aspiring to be Level III, Level II, or Level I reserve police officers. Modules are completed in descending order: Module III, followed by Module II, and then Module I.The modules do not have to be completed consecutively in one year. For example, one could complete Modules III and II, leave the program, and then return the next year to complete Module I. Also, the modules do not need to be completed at the same training facility. A recruit could complete Modules III and II at another facility and then take Module I at Palomar College.
Discontinuance of the PWM Level II Program, effective Fall 2021:
The college will be phasing this program out through a one year process that will offer each class only one more time so that students are able to finish the program no later than spring 2021. If your educational goal is to receive a Certificate of Achievement or an Associate Degree in Public Works Management Level II from Palomar College, then you should review this plan carefully to make sure you are available to take the course the next time it is offered and then apply for your Certificate or Degree upon completion of your last course. Below is the phase out schedule of classes for this program discontinuance. All courses will be offered online.
