From peace officers to fleet managers to elected officials and older adults, CAPCOG offers a variety of training courses or workshops for local governments, their staff, and their residents. These courses are offered to enhance public servants’ and officials’ knowledge of best practices related to government issues.

CAPCOG’s Regional Law Enforcement Academy certifies all courses for peace officers and emergency telecommunicators so training hours can qualify for Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) credits and help them maintain or advance their law enforcement certifications.
