Hosting or Sponsoring a Training
Two Options
Option 1- Host a Training
Provide a room for the training
Assist with refreshments
Assist with advertising (when possible)
Have a minimum of 5 individuals attend free in return for hosting (may
negotiate additional people attending free or at a reduced rate)
Assist with local and State CEU credit compliance as needed (some states
require that the hosting agency formally sponsor the training and that the agency takes care of
CEU/training paperwork)

Option 2- Sponsor a Training
Negotiate a flat rate for the training to allow as many individuals to
attend as possible (this may/may not include travel expenses)
Provide a room for the training
Assist with making copies of the training materials
Assist with refreshments
Assist with advertising (when possible)
Your agency collects registration fees from other agencies/individuals
attending or splits the total cost with other agencies. This is often more
cost effective because 1) it allows for unlimited number of officers to
attend, and 2) the sponsoring agency can recoup the costs by charging
a fee for other agencies to send their officers to the training. This has
been effective for several agencies. In fact, often times the sponsoring
agency recoups all of their training costs and have many of their
officers attend for free!
