The Basic Tribal Probation Academy (TPA)** is a comprehensive training academy that provides an opportunity for new and experienced probation officers to obtain up-to-date information and critical skills needed for effective case management, officer safety, and career development. TPA training provides tribal probation officers with current information on topics relevant to their work in the field.

The Academy continues to evolve by incorporating new examples, case studies and growing field expertise of faculty to complement and enhance delivery of the core curriculum. Training is presented using innovative methods, with the goal of enabling students to readily apply the knowledge and skills gained in each session. 

**The Tribal Probation Academy is currently awaiting final approval from the U.S. Department of Justice. Although registration is still encouraged, please check our website for approval updates prior to booking non-refundable travel.
