2015 CPT General Information and FAQs

2/24/2015

Agency Administrator,

As you are aware, there is a four hour continuing professional training (CPT) requirement for calendar year 2015.  The October 15th email announcement is attached for your review.  To assist you and your officers with fulfilling the requirement, a collection of commonly asked questions and general information has been compiled and is also attached.

In short, every appointed peace officer and trooper must complete 4 hours of CPT on or before December 31, 2015.  For a public appointing authority to be eligible for reimbursement of training costs, 1 hour of CPT must include critical subject training related to domestic violence while the remaining 3 hours may be related to general law enforcement topics.  Additionally, the public appointing authority must comply with the annual roster reporting requirements.

We’ve added the following eOPOTA courses to OHLEG, under the noted course categories, to assist in fulfilling the CPT requirements.  Written lesson plans for these new courses are also available by clicking on “OPOTC Curriculum” on the OHLEG homepage.

  • Domestic Violence with Lethality Factors (Patrol and Operations) – 1 hour of credit
  • Crisis Conflict Management (Patrol and Operations) – 1 hour of credit
  • 4-course Sexual Assault series (Crime Victim Series) – all four required for 1 hour of credit
