Texas Public Safety Conference TCOLE Credit

For this year’s conference, attendees will be responsible for reporting their conference hours to TCOLE through their agency TCOLE training liaison. The Texas Public Safety Conference will provide you with all the key information that will be needed to report, as if it were an outside training opportunity. To this end it is critical that you confirm your cell phone number (in case there are any questions) and your email address to receive all of these after the conference. Subsequently, we will send out reminders to file your credits in a timely fashion.

The required reporting forms will be provided at the conference for the attendee to fill out and return to a conference sessions staff member. The conference sessions staff will email a certificate of completion and other necessary documents to the attendee to return to their TCOLE training liaison. It will be the attendee’s responsibility to follow their agencies rules for reporting outside training to TCOLE.

To earn credit, attendees MUST ensure they scan both into AND out of each session.  Time will only be granted for the time the attendee remains in each session.

Since TCOLE longer allows reporting of 0.5 hours of training and most sessions are 50 minutes long, the sessions are added together to get a total for the conference. TCOLE does not allow rounding up for credit.

If attendee attends a PSAP tour (Galveston CO SO on Monday 1400 – 1600 for 2 hours) and/or (League City on Tuesday 1330 – 1600 for 2.5 hours), they will not receive TCOLE credit for those hours.

If an attendee attends a pre-conference course and all 3 days of the conference, their total hours would be 19 hours. Questions on self-reporting; contact your specific training coordinator or call TCOLE: (512) 936-7700.
