Hosting Information

If you are interested in hosting this class, please see the requirements listed below then fill out a Hosting Request Form.

1) The primary host agency must be a state or local agency.

2) Each class is required to be filled with sworn state and local law enforcement officers from multiple agencies. In the event that federal or military personnel are inquiring about registering, and you have given priority to state/local officers, you are allowed to fill the remaining empty slots with federal/military. These federal/military students must not take seats from state or local officers.

3) A classroom capable of seating 40 people for the first morning of the training is required. 20-40 acres of secured unimproved land for the remaining days of training are preferred. The open air tactics apply in any exterior environment, so this class can be run in a parking lot if necessary. In that case, it will be incumbent upon the hosting agency to provide additional officers adequate to secure the training site from unwanted intrusion for safety reasons. Preferred locations include private property, ranches, hunting leases, and / or parks that can be closed off for the duration of the class.

4) The host agency will be responsible for registration. We will post the class to our website under ‘Upcoming Courses’, and list the POC’s contact information for registration. Under special circumstances, we can remove the class from the website at the agency’s request.

5) The host agency is responsible for the advertisement of the class. We will send you the course flyer for distribution.

6) ALERRT will issue certificates for all classes.

7) In the event a class can’t be filled ALERRT reserves the option to open registration nationwide or cancel the class.
