§ 79.15. Failure to complete basic training.

 (a)  An officer who fails to achieve a passing score on the written examination portion of basic training will not be allowed to continue in that basic training program. The officer may reapply to the Commission to enroll and participate in subsequent basic training programs.

 (b)  If an officer achieves a passing score on the written examination, but otherwise fails to complete the basic training requirements under §  79.13 (relating to requirements for completion), the officer’s passing score will be recognized by the Commission for 1 year from the date of attainment of the passing score on the written examination. If the officer enrolls in a subsequent basic training program during this 1-year period, the officer will be required to attend and complete only the portion of the basic training that was not successfully completed.

 (c)  If an officer fails to achieve a passing score on the range portion of basic training, the Executive Director will notify the officer’s chief probation officer, by means of certified mail, that the officer did not achieve a passing score on this portion of basic training.

 (d)  An officer who fails to achieve a passing score on the range portion of basic training may be afforded one additional opportunity to shoot the range portion of basic training within 90 calendar days from the date the officer fails to achieve a passing score if the officer’s chief probation officer submits a written request to the Executive Director seeking permission for the officer to shoot the range portion of basic training within 45 calendar days of the date that the officer failed to achieve a passing score. The Executive Director will grant or deny the permission, in writing, within 15 business days after receiving the written request from the officer’s chief probation officer.

   (1)  The request must include the following:

     (i)   A proposed date, time and location for the shoot.

     (ii)   The name of the CFI who will conduct the examination.

     (iii)   A written statement from a CFI that the CFI provided remedial range training and that the officer is competent to pass the range portion of basic training.

   (2)  The examination may be subject to monitoring by the Commission without notice.
