The ICI program consists of three phases: a Core Course, a Foundation Specialty Course, and three related Electives. Becoming a POST – Certified Criminal Investigator requires completion of all three phases (approximately 240 hours) within five years.
The Core Course provides the basic skills common to all investigations. By no means do the students in the ICI program sit passively and listen to lectures. Each student brings a unique perspective and experience, and as such plays a key role in the ICI instructional process. Specially trained investigators and subject matter experts collaborate on course development and teaching. As a result, each student is immersed in a learning environment that closely mirrors his or her real world. Role play, simulated crime scenarios, major case studies, the use of professional actors, and a small class size ensure an active and practical learning environment.
A California Peace Officer Standards and Training Basic Course certificate issued from an accredited regional police academy or equivalent as determined by the Division Dean or their appointee. These skills and knowledge base are related to adopted POST and/or industry standards. NOTE: Approval of equivalent training is not a guarantee state regulatory or licensing agencies will also grant equivalency.
ICI courses are open to all full-time investigators or qualified uniformed officers with one-year experience conducting follow-up investigations. ICI only requires a firm commitment from both students and their respective agencies that all courses will be completed.
