Upcoming DRE Classes

 

DRE Course Description:

This course is a 72 hour classroom course.  It is required students pass with an 80% or better score on the final exam.  Once the classroom course is finished, the students will be required to go to a 32 hour field certification course.  This course shall be completed within 90 days of the completion of the classroom course.

In order to qualify for this course, prospective students must have one year patrol experience and must have successfully passed the SFST and ARIDE courses.

In order to register for this course, students are required to electronically submit a Training Request form as well as copies of their SFST and ARIDE certificates to the course coordinator.  Roster spots will be given on a first come, first served basis with emphasis placed on the student's geographic location in relation to the course.  An email with a name and POST ID number will NOT suffice to reserve a roster spot.


Effective September 1, 2017, the CHP has collaborated and partnered with POST to will begin reimbursing all sworn California law enforcement agency personnel for travel costs incurred by students attending DRE courses.

After attending training, DRE students may request reimbursement through POST using a Training Reimbursement Request (TRR) form, POST 2-273, which can be found online here:
http://lib.post.ca.gov/Publications/2-273.pdf
Approved rates and FAQs can be found here:
https://www.post.ca.gov/reimbursement-program.aspx

POST will reimburse California law enforcement agencies who submit a TRR after attending DRE classroom training and DRE field certifications for subsistence expenses including lodging and meals. Additionally, students may claim travel costs for travel to and from DRE training.

CHP personnel will continue the current practice of seeking travel reimbursement through the California Automated Travel Expense Reimbursement System - CalATERS.
