The Kern County Sheriff's Office operates a Regional Training Center (RTC) located at 962 Norris Road.
The staff at the RTC are responsible for the training of all Kern County Sheriff's Deputies, Detentions Deputies and outside agencies in various law enforcement related topics. In addition, the RTC hosts a P.O.S.T. Basic Academy for law enforcement, as well as a S.T.C. Core Academy for detentions.
The Training Division also provides all firearms training and qualifications cycles for the entire department.
Recently, the Training Division has had success in running a Community Academy to educate our citizens about the duties and responsibilities of a Sheriff's employee. 
The Training Division staff are very dedicated to their mission of training Kern County's finest.
