In house training by MTTU IV member agencies cannot be encouraged enough.  Often enough agencies have annual in house training. Due to the mandated training guidelines, as set forth in the Police & Community Reform Act implemented in January 1, 2016, it can benefit agencies to have in house training certified by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training & Standards Board and have the Mandatory Training Guidelines apply to their training.

MTTU IV has provided a set of instructions on how to proceed on obtaining Course Certification for in house training.
