2015/2016 PORAC Training

EDUCATION AND TRAINING

 

Providing ongoing educational training for members is a major part of PORAC's philosophy. Each year PORAC schedules training throughout the state on Internal Affairs, Basic & Advanced Collective Bargaining, Association Leadership and Political Action/PAC Management. Many presentations involve group discussions and unique problem solving skills that help members effectively deal with the issues facing our profession.

All courses are designed to enable our members to be more effective within their organizations. Courses are offered tuition-free to PORAC members with a minimal materials fee per person.

In addition to the regular training schedule, PORAC offers additional educational opportunities at our Annual Issues Symposium. This symposium brings key law enforcement issues to the forefront.
 
NOTE:  Non-Members, Limited, Reserve and RAM cannot sign-up for classes until 30 days prior to the class.
 
Cancellations must be received in writing two weeks prior to the first day of each class for a refund or credit.
