    Fletc Uptp

    Just curious about this program. I am headed to FLETC in November and I was looking for someone with first hand experience to give me a basic over view of the day to day things I will encounter. Thanks.

    I usually refer people back to the Common Federal Acronyms list, but that wasn't listed. It's updated now. ;)

    UPTP is the Uniformed Police Training Program at FLETC. It's training for federal uniformed LEOs.

    Just FYI... but FLETC for the most part has switched back to 6 day work weeks. The good news is you get back home faster and alot of agencies will pay you overtime every week for that 6th class day.... bad news is less time to visit St Simons on the weekends. ha

    I am currently at FLETC in LMPT and i can tell you quite a bit about the UTPT program . Their program is a 5 weeks shorter than ours but has a quite a few of the same things. PM me
    Also if you want to start studying or listen to the legal podcasts you will be well ahead of the game for the 4th Ammend classes and tests. I can link the website, on the left you will see practice exams , podcasts , and some articles. to go to the website remove the space between .gov & /training

    I'm heading for UPTP in February. What is the PT like? What is the "average" day like? What is the percentage between classroom and practical excercises?

    Training days are split up pretty good , you might have the pistol range for 2 hours , then legal for 2 hours, then lunch then patrol skills for 2 or tactics for 2. They keep things pretty interesting, sometimes you will have 4 hour blocks like patrol or emergency driving .



    PT is done different for a few programs like yours and mine:
    Our LMPT / UPTP do what is called ORT or officer response training. Basically the blocks are broken up into a few different areas such as weapon retention, ground defense, and so on.
    You can figure about a 10 minute student lead stretch then around 1 hour and 50 minutes of cross fit training along with the defensive tactics. we tend to do our thrashings in the mat room others run a lot more, but what we might do is sprint a 100 meters on the track , do prone handcuffing, sprint a 100 meters, do kneeling handcuffing , do a weapons retrieval from a kneeling , sprint 100 meters and do a search incident to arrest , go back in the mat room sprawl and so on .... not too bad time flies but you will be soaking wet and dog tired. Lots of student on student contact at around 60% force, but you get people getting a little crazy trying to hurt another student.
