The part-time academy is for officers who have been
hired as a part-time employee of an Illinois Police agency.
If you have not been hired as a part-time employee of an
Illinois Police agency, please see the Intern information.
The part-time academy is primarily a web based course, but meets approximately
every third Saturday for nine months, in order to facilitate
certain practical training that cannot be conducted on-line.
Attendance at these Saturday sessions is required.
Part-Time Officer Basic Training Program has been suspended
until January 1, 2018. Therefore, once the current PTBLE
courses are concluded using the old curriculum, there will
be a break in PTBLE training for a few months. This will
allow time for the Executive Institute and their staff at
Western Illinois University to update the online training
modules and test bank. Please contact the ILETSB if you need
an extension for an already hired officer.
