What Users Are Saying
By partnering with Virtual Academy, we are enabling many departments to achieve the majority of their P.O.S.T. requirements without losing valuable time away from their assignments. The ability to eliminate one day of academy training and replace those hours with Virtual Academy courses will save our Department of 850+ nearly $250,000.
- Lieutenant Steve Hampton, Director, St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy
Training is paramount in police work and Virtual Academy accommodates the delivery. Our officers are now receiving more training annually than is mandated by P.O.S.T. The ability to cover classroom training online and live scenario training through the department is a combination that will continue to improve upon the level of service we provide our citizens.

- Chief Ranger Shane Petty, TN State Parks
Honestly, Virtual Academy has outstanding training that we are using department wide from management to patrol classes. Their cost effective training has saved us thousands of dollars in overtime funds. This has attributed to other budgetary items, which allows us to send officers to other specialized training. I would HIGHLY recommend Virtual Academy to any department of any size!

The classes offered at Virtual Academy are taught by renowned individuals with a vast amount of knowledge in their field. The classes are broken down into segments and come with an online syllabus for the student to follow along with. I download the syllabus and have a notebook next to me when taking any class because I know there is an abundance of information for myself to take note of and use as a future reference.
