Park Ranger Law Enforcement Academy
How we train
The Park Ranger Law Enforcement Academy (PRLEA), formally the Seasonal Law Enforcement Training Program (SLETP) was developed in 1977 to prepare the seasonal ranger to perform law enforcement in areas administered by the National Park Service. The training program is offered at various venues across the country. The core required program consists of 680 class hours and lasts on average 17 weeks. Some programs may offer additional add-on classes to increase your potential for hire with the NPS.
