State of San Andreas
Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Requirements

The Regular Basic Course (academy) is the entry-level training requirement for most San Andreas peace officers. The Regular Basic Course curriculum is divided into 20 individual topics, called Learning Domains. The Learning Domains contain the minimum required foundational information for given subjects.

The Regular Basic Course prepares each student by providing hands-on experience, including weapons training, role-play scenarios, patrol procedures, emergency vehicle operations, and arrest and control techniques. The student must pass written, exercise, scenario, and physical abilities tests, to demonstrate readiness for entry into a department's standardized Field Training / Police Training Program. Academies provide requirements in addition to POST's and prospective students should contact the academies directly with any questions related to academy-specific requirements.
