We now offer a curriculum of over One Hundred (100) topics of Academy Quality Training Programs throughout the United States by open registration, in-service, and co-hosted programs.

Each of the courses offered to provide the attendees with a quality written student manual(s), course objectives, motivation for involvement, and course agenda that defines the learning skills each attendee will be able to take back to their departments and provide in the area of instruction with greater knowledge and proficiency.

Our History

Public Agency Training Council began in 1987 with a single class: Child Sexual Abuse. The sole purpose of PATC is to provide quality training at affordable prices.

Today PATC is the largest privately held law enforcement training company in the nation offering a curriculum of over one hundred topics of academy quality training programs throughout the United States by open registration, in service, and co-hosted programs. Public Agency Training Council instructors bring years of hands-on experience in their areas of expertise and instructional fields.

Each PATC course provides the attendee with a complete learning environment: an expert instructor teaching from their own student manual and multimedia materials (PATC Instructors are required to write their own student manuals and PowerPoint® presentations), supported by an on-site PATC coordinator. Each course contains objectives, motivation for involvement, learning objectives, and a course agenda that defines the learning skills each attendee will receive.
