Welcome to the St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy Basic Learning Skills page. We designed these pages for Academy recruits who have been assigned to a recruit class, but have not yet begun their studies. You will find introductions to some of the skills you will need to use well at the Academy. You will also find some assessment exercises that will allow you and our instructors to determine what skills you already have and the skills on which you will need to work.
CMPA Recruits: This is a Required Assignment
Each recruit is expected to complete these exercises by the date on the confirmation letter.
It will take less than an hour to view or listen to the presentations, and two or three hours of additional work to do the exercises. We will provide you with some automated feedback and will contact you before you enter the program if we have concerns about your submissions.
You will also find links to learning skills materials available on the Web that you are encouraged to read.
We are sorry, but while anyone may download and look at the materials on this site and will receive the automated feedback, only submissions from registered recruits will receive any personal attention.
