The Sacramento Regional Public Safety Training Center (SRPSTC), operated by American River College, is dedicated to providing high quality training and educational programs for public safety personnel. The center offers entry-level and advanced in-service instruction in areas that meet the needs of individuals as well as public and private agencies.

All courses meet the academic standards of the Los Rios Community College District. These courses may be certified by the California Commission on Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST), California Standards and Training for Corrections (STC), and the California State Fire Marshal’s Office. Most courses presented at the SRPSTC are offered in an intensive, concentrated, short-term format.

Graduates from the basic core courses may be eligible for employment in county and city law enforcement agencies specializing in police, corrections and/or probation.
