The Explorer Level III Academy is an intense seven day training course located at the CHP Academy in West
Sacramento. It gives Explorer Cadets their first real opportunity to see what it takes to be a CHP Cadet.
Through seven grueling days of live-in training, Explorer Cadets will receive instruction in over 20 subjects
including Physical Training, Accident Investigation, Vehicle Code, Physical Methods of Arrest, DUI
Investigation, and Laws of Arrest. Upon successful completion of the Explorer Level III Academy, Explorer
Cadets are awarded their cloth badge and make the well-deserved transition to Explorer. Upon completing
Explorer Level III Academy training, Explorers will have obtained the preparatory knowledge necessary to
help them be successful in their endeavor to become a CHP officer.
