Part Time Academy - Southwestern Illinois College

The part-time academy is for officers who have been hired as a part-time employee of an Illinois Police agency.  If you have not been hired as a part-time employee of an Illinois Police agency, please see the Intern information.  The part-time academy is primarily a web-based course, but meets approximately every other Saturday and Sunday for nine months, in order to facilitate certain practical training that cannot be conducted on-line.  Attendance at the Saturday and Sunday sessions are required.
