Last year POST did not host a December, 16-hour Death Investigation course in Great Falls, as had been done for the previous 7 years. In place of the in-person training for 2020 and now, for 2021, POST has identified and approved an online training course that will meet the statutory requirement for the 16 hours of continuing education that each Coroner/Deputy Coroner must obtain every two years. The training is open to all officers, not just Coroners and Deputy Coroners!
Each agency/officer is responsible for registering for the training. POST is not involved in the registration process at all. Class hours are 0900-1700 (Mountain Time) on Tuesday and Wednesday with a one hour lunch (7 credit hours each day) and 0900-1400 hours on Thursday with no lunch break (5 credit hours), totaling a total of 19 POST approved training hours. The cost to the agency is $250 and that would provide 3 links, one for each officer, up to 3 officers. The total cost of the training for 3 officers from an agency is $250 total, not $250 each!
The power point slide presentation of the training, certificate of completion and a pdf student manual are provided to each officer. The manual has over 250 pages available to the officer which he/she can print out or copy to a disc or thumb drive.

This is First Responder Honor Guard training based on the book, The Honor Guard Manual, that isn’t offered anywhere else. Ceremonial units need to have a training program that has a solid foundation based on a national standard. This course and The Honor Guard Manual establishes the foundation for your team who will have the opportunity to learn every ceremonial element for a funeral as well as the standards and techniques for colors presentations and much more.
Students do not have to be from an established team to attend the training. The class is applicable for those currently on a team and those who are in the process of developing a team (large or small). The training is open to Police Departments, Sheriffs Offices, and Fire Departments.
