Course Information











Professional Courses for Professional Operators


The National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy and the International Maritime Law Enforcement Academy provide education and training for law enforcement personnel and emergency responders, as well as the critical infrastructure industries located on or near the maritime environment.  Besides improved tactical operations within an agency, this education also covers coordination among applicable agencies at times of catastrophic events exercising the National Incident Management System (NIMS).


The objective of the Academy is to provide law enforcement agencies the best possible maritime training the world has to offer. And Academy with no walls, our training units are mobile and we bring our training to your agencies. By coming to you, we save both your agency and the citizens you protect significant money. As a non-profit organization, we are politically neutral and assess the officers, agents, and agencies in a fair and impartial manner.


Many classes taught around the country teach tactics and skills oriented to equipment officers or agents may never use or have available within their agencies. Our programs are different as they are specifically designed to use each agency's specific assets in order to increase the officers’ awareness in the capabilities of those assets, and how to best use them to the officers’ and the agency's advantage. The key to raising the level of professionalism, proficiency, and officer safety and survival is to customize the training to utilize the actual assets and equipment used by those officers in the field. This is our method and we do it well!


The following is a partial list of "professional development" courses. Other courses and training programs are available, and each course can be tailored to your specific needs and requirements.
