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 in-service training courses. Although open to the public, some of these courses are intended to serve those already employed in a variety of public safety careers. Prospective students must meet the prerequisites listed in the course description.

The application and registration process is completed at the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium Center, which is located on the Coyote Valley campus of Gavilan College. Course numbers will be assigned as needed and Consortium titles will be used. Course curriculum adheres to Title V requirements, as well as the specifications of the associated regulating agencies.
