The ICI Core is offered at no cost to students, as long as their agency is eligible for POST reimbursement. Students receive a per diem and will be reimbursed for all travel expenses. State employees are not eligible for POST reimbursement and must contact our office at for course cost information.


The ICI program will be informative to all investigators regardless of experience level. All ICI courses use the adult experience-based techniques of learning. Participants rely on their experience and the experience of others for learning. Learners are challenged through the use of realistic and practical applications. Even the most experienced investigators can learn from their association with others in the class.
