In-service training courses offered for police personnel through the Public Safety Training Consortium. Course numbers will be assigned as needed, and Consortium titles will be used. The curriculum for each course offered adheres to POST (Peace Officers Standards and Training) and Title V requirements.

College of San Mateo is a member of the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium. The Consortium is funded by member colleges to provide vocational specific training which may require special facilities, special training conditions, or is presented outside of the regular schedule of college classes.

South Bay is our regional Police Academy and Dispatcher Academy presenter, and offers other POST-certified, in-service training courses. Although open to the public, the majority of these courses are intended to serve those already employed in a variety of Public Safety careers.

The application and registration process is completed at the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium Center located near the Evergreen Valley College campus. The curriculum for each course offered adheres to POST (Peace Officer Standards and Training) and State of California Title V requirements.
