    Can someone direct me to a institute or department that will host an In-service class for June? I have not been successful on getting a police job for two years that I've had it. I recently interviewed for a job and feel that I am in the running to obtain it and need In-Service to keep my certs. I graduated R/I June 30, 2012. Do I only have until June 30th, 2014 to get In-Service or do I have until December 2014?

    Any advice will be sufficient.

    grn3charlie Yeah, THAT GUY!

    Have you contacted the academy you went to, to see if they offer it? Try going on the MPTC website and search around for training. Good luck.

    I went through sspi in foxboro. On their website it says their last inservice started on Monday. That's the last scheduled class.

    I'd keep looking at the other academies. Maybe Plymouth? I'm sure if you pay them, they will take you

    I could be wrong but I am pretty sure you need to be hired/sponsored by a department to even attend in-service. Definitely contact the MPTC, they can give you all the answers.

    Thanks for the replies.. I ended up makin a few emails and found out that if one doesn't have police powers within 2 years of academy end you lose it. Reserve officers do not need in service (unbelievably)... Just an FYI to others who wanted this information .

    Res/Int is now 330 hours and 1800 bucks. More of a committment and level of training than just five or so years ago. I can see where no in-service is required. Kinda makes sense because MPTC Veteran Inservice takes up so much of the resources and should be the priority. Part-timers should get adequate updates though through any means available though.

    Last time I heard they scratched the in service recently, my department had us do the online MPI training inservice instead... budget cuts >_<

    In regards to the 2 year rule, does anyone know if the reserve-intermittent academy cert stays active if you get on an SSPO department or do you have to get sworn in on a municipal department within 2 years of graduation? Thanks.

    I believe as long as the department that hired you requires the R/I Academy, you are good. That could be wrong...
