This CPS certification course (recognized by the M.P.T.C.) will be free of charge and held starting around the second week in January at the Revere Police Headquarters. It will be for (4) four Saturdays (8) eight hour days (32 hrs total for the state certificate). The time will be TBA but looking at either 0900-1700 or 1000-1800. This is offered to full time, reserve and auxiliary officers. Spots are limited and will be offered to other agencies around the state so you need to confirm if your going to attend with me and commit to it by December 10, 2013 before it is offered to other agencies.
