Utah Department of Public Safety

POST - Mid-Management Certificate


The Mid-Management Development Program is intended to fulfill the management training needs of sergeants, lieutenants, captains and department heads.  A law enforcement officer may earn the Mid-Management Certificate by successfully completing three required courses offered by POST and two management level courses determined by their agency. These elective classes must be management level courses and must be a minimum of 24 hours each.  The POST required courses are:

  • POST Supervisory & Management Course
  • Instructor Development
  • Employee Discipline and Administrative Procedure


The two remaining mid-management level courses will be determined by the law enforcement executive of each agency based on the needs and mission of the agency.  Examples may include: instructor certifications, supervisory and mid-level (Lieutenant) level courses. Courses not accepted would be those below a first-line supervisor (Sergeant) level, examples would be FTO and Adavanced Officer.

The candidate will submit a letter requesting the Mid-Management Certificate with photocopies of the certificates for the three required classes and evidence of completion of the two mid-management level courses. Documentation will be sent to the POST In-Service Training Supervisor.  After review and approval the certificate will be mailed to the candidate.

For additional questions please send an email with your full name and agency to: support@utahpost.org
