After a two semester absence, the Department of Fish and Wildlife Academy will soon be starting back at Butte College. The Spring 2014 program will begin January 21 and run through August 15, 2014.

Butte College officials say usually the Department of Fish & Wildlife will fill a majority of the seats, leaving several available for self-sponsored individuals. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife Academy is approved by the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.). P.O.S.T. requires law enforcement recruits to receive training in 41 different Learning Domains, and this training is supplemented by Fish and Wildlife specific topics for a total of 1200 hours in the program.


“We are glad to be back offering the academy at Butte College,” said Mike Maloney, Director of Public Safety Education and Training. “It’s been a great partnership, and since the college is a 928 acre wildlife refuge, we have the perfect training grounds for the academy.”


The application deadline is November 9, 2013. Applicants can call 530-895-2401 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday for detailed instructions and to reserve a slot to take a P.O.S.T. Entrance Examination.
