Basic Law Enforcement Training Program
How we train
The Land Management Police Training Program (LMPT) is the basic law enforcement training program for officers primarily charged with enforcing natural resource laws, regulations, and violations with nexus to the public lands of the United States and its territories. The LMPT is 17 weeks in length and contains approximately 650 hours of instruction. For NPS commissioned Rangers, the LMPT is supplemented with a one week required agency specific course of instruction called the Ranger Specific Basic Training Program (RSBTP) resulting in the entire program length being 18 weeks.
