About Training

CLEAT was the first statewide law enforcement organization in Texas to offer training to its members. Since 1976, CLEAT has offered training to assist officers in critical incidents, workplace ethics, and officer rights. Since its inception, CLEAT has educated hundreds of members.

In fact, CLEAT pushed hard in the legislature for increases in training, better professionalism, higher standards, and education for officers. Unlike some other organizations, CLEAT has never sought profit from an officer’s training.

Since officer training is required by TCOLE under the law, CLEAT has never accepted government grants, or other funding to operate or to subsidize its training or operations. Our goal has always been to offer training to our members at no cost. We offer numerous training opportunities throughout the state, including training from nationally recognized trainers, and TCOLE required classes taught by TCOLE instructors. We also offer training at our annual conference and special classes such as our annual leadership academy.

We continue to offer exclusive training through partnerships with PoliceOne AcademyCalibre Press, and Dave Smith and Associates.

Through our partnership with PoliceOne, CLEAT offers online training to our members that qualify for TCOLE credit. This is especially beneficial to those officers in areas of the state who do not have access to a wide choice of training opportunities.
