    Hey everyone, I was writing a post about the advanced post academy that CA makes officers undergo at around the 5-7 year mark, when I discovered they no longer do so. I remember there being an "advanced" academy requirement when I was in the basic academy in 1999-2000, but I guess that has gone the way of the dodo bird sometime since then. I'm trying to research any states that require similar training later on in your career and was hoping somebody out there has heard of a state that still does this? Thanks!

    Yeah CA definitely does not do this anymore.

    And as far as most other states, I don't think you're going to find anything like an 'advanced academy', other than just regular in-service training every year.

    I though that CA advanced certificate had something to do with having a degree?

    You're right, CA has a basic, intermediate and advanced certificate. They have to do with number of years on and bachelors/masters degrees.
