eOPOTA Courses

eOPOTA Learning Management System, provides you on-line training opportunities for career development and compliance with Continuing Professional Training (CPT) and Statutorily Mandated Training requirements. Log into eOPOTA here with your OHLEG credentials to view the course catalog.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Exciting new things are happening for law enforcement training. Before we rollout the new platform we need to transfer over any completed class work so you get credit for the work you’ve done. The eOPOTA system will be taken off-line on Tuesday, June 1, 2021 for the migration. This means all users of eOPOTA currently taking a course for a certificate MUST complete the ENTIRE course by 11:59 PM on Monday, May 31, 2021. All completed eOPOTA on-line training records will automatically be transferred to the new platform. However, any courses in mid-completion will not be transferred to the new system.

In June, the Attorney General’s Office will announce OPOTA Online, our new on-line learning platform. The new platform will be user friendly and contain new training material. We look forward to working with you and hearing your feedback.
