6VAC20-30-60. Requirements for in-service training.

A. In-service training shall be provided under the authority of a certified academy. At the option of the certified academy, such training may be conducted by the main academy or at an approved satellite academy. The certified academy may conduct training at an offsite facility if the facility is approved and an academy staff member acts as the coordinator for the program. The academy director shall provide the department field coordinator the date, time, and location of such training at least seven days in advance of the program. Failure to provide such notification negates the training approval. All necessary records must be maintained and documentation kept on file in accordance with the certified academy policy. Roll call training shall not be approved for in-service training.

B. In-service training that is approved shall be subject to inspection and review by the department. The department may deny in-service credit for any training that is not in compliance with training standards.

C. A certified instructor may receive in-service credit for training conducted on an hour-for-hour basis. No more than 16 hours may be credited for in-service training per two-year in-service period. In addition, each topic may be credited toward in-service training only once per two-year in-service period. This provision only applies to the instructor that prepares and conducts the training. In-service credit is expressly prohibited for role players and evaluators.
