The training requirements for a newly appointed United States Probation Officer are developed within each District. In addition, successful applicants will participate in the Initial Probation and Pretrial Training conducted at the National Training Academy in North Charleston, South Carolina. This site is co-located with, and a partner of, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
In the District of Idaho, personal development is a critical element of our success and is embedded within our Strategic Plan. All employees receive a minimum of 40 hours of training annually with most receiving well over that amount in their early careers.
