The Basic Peace Officer Certification (BPOC) at CV Tech is made possible through a collaborative effort between the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET), the Oklahoma legislature, and Career Tech. The program prepares cadets for a career in law enforcement, corrections and public safety. Cadets will learn a variety of police fundamentals and functions, from Firearms and Defensive Tactics to Investigations and Forensics.

Instructor and Program Information

I am happy to speak with cadets about grades, learning progress, classroom behavior, or any other questions or concerns you may have about my class. Email is the easiest way to contact me; I check email daily and try to respond within 24 hours. You can also call after school (4:00 – 4:30 ) to speak to me.


Academic grading is governed by CLEET Oklahoma Administrative code. The CV Tech BPOC Academy requires minimum scores of 75% in the majority of academic blocks of instruction. First Aid and SFST Blocks require a minimum score of 80%. Cadets must score a minimum of 80% on the Final CLEET Certification Exam.

Instructional Methods

Cadets are expected to meet the course goals and demonstrate their understanding of specific concepts. Various instructional strategies will be used: lecture, textbooks, digital handouts, hands-on practice with manipulatives, class discussions, Internet tutorials, leadership activities, guest speakers and special projects. Cadets will work independently and in groups. Assignments require cadets to use academic skills of reading, writing and math along with technical skills.


  • Cadets are required to pass a safety test with a grade of 100%
  • Safe operation of equipment and safe work habits will ensure the personal well being of cadets
  • Cadets must wear appropriate personal protective equipment for the task they are doing
  • Report any malfunction of equipment to the instructor immediately
  • Do not move or tamper with equipment; the equipment is set up and arranged in a necessary manner


  • Follow all class policies and procedures; comply with substitute requests even if different from normal routine
  • Cadets will remain in class; no passes out of the room unless a cadet is requested by the office
  • For safety reasons; some programs may limit access to the shop or lab when there is a substitute
  • Help the substitute in any way you can and be a positive representative of CV Tech

Program Expectations

  • Speak kindly. Good communication with peers and instructors is an important skill. Actions such as gossiping, inappropriate joking, cursing, derogatory remarks, and disruptions are unprofessional and will not be tolerated.

  • Arrive ready. When the bell rings, be in assigned seat and in uniform.

  • Time on task. Spend time on task: participate in instructional activities, follow directions, work with peers, etc.

  • Clean. A clean work space is necessary for safety. Every cadet will clean as they go and clean at the end of the day.

  • Ask for help. It is normal to have questions about difficult sections of learning. Please ask for help by raising your hand to have a section explained again or ask to step into the office if you would like to speak privately.

  • Track progress. Cadets will use a plan of study to track their progress. Failing to meet deadlines will result in zeros.

  • Break Time. Use your break for personal business (restroom, phone calls, food, drink); you must go to the break area.

  • Cell phones. While cell phones are convenient, they are a distraction to your learning. Please put them on silent and put them in the designated location. Refer to the CVTC Student Handbook and BPOC Guidelines for the school policy.

  • Professional behavior. Display professional behavior at all times; this means no horseplay, yelling, etc.

  • Solve problems. If a discipline problem should arise, the steps* below will be followed::
    1st Incident – Counseling by BPOC Staff
    2nd Incident – Written Reprimand
    3rd Incident – Disciplinary Notice
    4th Incident – Termination Recommendation
    *Cadet disciplinary process procedures and details are included in the BPOC Guidelines.
