Total Training Time: 30 hours
POST Credit for GST Completion*
While the hosting state does not currently offer POST credit for GST completion, if you are attending the course from out of state, you may qualify for POST credit in your state. The GST course is now POST Certified in over 35 states in America, making Gracie University the only jiu-jitsu organization in the country to achieve this distinction. The International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST) launched the National Certification Program (NCP) to establish law enforcement training standards and "best practices" relating to improved professionalism and skill sets for the nation’s first responders. Since NCP courses are recognized nationally, any time a Peace Officer from one of the member states completes GST Level 1 Instructor Certification Program (in person), the training hours will count towards the officer’s mandatory in-service training requirements. To confirm that your state is an IADLEST member, please visit GracieUniversity.com/POST
GST IADLEST Course Number: 21332-2105
