EVOC Instructor - Basic

Our EVOC Instructor Basic course is designed to train officers how to instruct students by conducting commentary drives and offer remedial driver training.  They will be able to teach the laws of physics relating to vehicle motions (which affects vehicle operation), identify common driving errors, improper attitudes and unsafe driving techniques.  Our course is presented by subject matter experts with interactive exercises and opportunities to practice skills and receive constructive feedback. 

Students will receive a certificate of completion from the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission. Any necessary meal and lodging arrangements, and the cost incurred thereby, will be the responsibility of the applicant and/or their agency.   

To register for the course, contact your Training Manager to assign the training to you via Acadis.

Upcoming classes are listed below.  Registration does not guarantee acceptance into the class.  Selections will be completed four weeks prior to the class; those accepted into the class will receive a notification at that time.

If classes are full, or not available, please complete the Course Interest Survey.  This is not a waiting list, but instead helps us see if there is enough interest to create another class.  If we schedule a session, we will contact everyone who has completed the survey and request that registration be completed.

For administrative concerns or assistance with registration, contact Madison.berry@cjtc.wa.gov.
