College of the Desert
The Public Safety Academy at Palm Desert's College of the Desert offers basic peace officer and firefighting training programs and Ben Clark Training Center has partnered with
the Academy to provide additional training courses to supplement the college's Basic Peace Officer training program.
Evening and weekend classes, as well as a central-county location make peace officer training more convenient than ever. If you are interested in attending classes you must pre-enroll at ccapply.org and register with the College of the Desert to take classes.
