    currently in an MPTC run academy now and looking for advice from officers that have gone through the new curriculum. Any good study guides out there? What should be focused on in the student lessons? What study practices worked best for you in the academy to get through the new curriculum?

    Make a study group with your classmates. See if there’s any experienced reserve officers or out of state officers that could teach some of the newer guys the basics.

    From there it’s just knowing what elements allow you to charge someone with a crime, what your right to arrest is, and the penalties.

    Pay attention in class, do your reading, study with your classmates. Memorize things. Look up mnemonics online.

    I assume just like every other academy you will have the 2020 LED Crim Law, Procedures, and Motor Vehicle Law books.

    Memorize the use of force continuum.

    Make sure you can make a damn good cup of hot cocoa and that you’re experienced with restocking and accessing blanket warmers.

    This is not a fully exhaustive list, but it’s a start.

    WTH "new curriculum" are you talking about?

    Are you in MPOC? what is new? I would say just hunker down and get the CURRENT aka "New" curriculum that you are CURRENTLY immersed in! Honestly, WTH are you talking about? What is the common frame of reference for the new curriculum? Mr. Spock would say you are not being logical with your vague question.

    What did they cut? For awhile, it seemed like academies everywhere were going up in hours.

    Take notes, take notes, take notes...

    Back brief your classmates at the end of the day and ensure everyone has the same/similar notes and a good understanding of the concepts of that day.

    From my experience, during MV/Crim/Procedural Law weeks; the instructor would always start the new day of lecture asking us if we had any questions from the previous day or the nights reading.

    Do not be afraid to ask questions if you’re unsure, get comfortable being uncomfortable So long as it isn’t a dumb question (and yes there are such) ignore any flak you get from people.

    Seek out other resources to aid you in understanding the material. For example, my academy did not use Scheft books for any class. Our class elected to buy a collection of his books with class dues, for each squad to share and pull information from.

    And finally when in doubt, Pick C

    Yeah the goal is to decrease MPOC hours, and also to increase RES/INT hours until they are the same course in 2023.........
    and then they can say;
    FUCK SSPO!!!!
