Your best choice for Public Safety eLearning!

The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) is a national training clearinghouse which lists web-based training and hybrid-based training services for the men and women of America's public safety fields. We are an all-volunteer training organization with our purpose being to utilize instructor-led, e-learning, and m-learning technologies to educate public safety personnel and the public about today's complex public safety world.

TAPSTI funding comes from donations. We receive no government funding. We do not use a professional fund raiser so 100% of our income is used for training and for tuition support for educators and staff. TAPSTI is a national organization of volunteers working together to create training across the various fields of Public Safety.

We believe it is time for a new model for Public Safety and we call this new model "Peacekeeper Justice". This new version of American Justice clarifies needs required in a 21st century democracy given the history of the United States and what our culture is. We call for an improved, scientific, intellectual form of Public Safety that identifies law enforcement, the courts, corrections, probation, parole, as well as counseling, fire services, and emergency management as collaborators and integrated components of a new concept of Public safety which requires cross-training in each other's disciplines. We believe the threats to our national security are so great both from within and outside our borders that all components of Public Safety are involved in peacekeeping efforts here at home and that we can best ensure national security through a collaborative Public Safety force which emphasizes peacekeeping here in our own homeland.

You can learn valuable skills through TAPSTI's blend of our self-paced eCampus, mCampus, radio shows, videos, webinars, and ground-based training created and delivered by our in-house volunteers from throughout the nation who have experience in their fields. By providing convenient and accessible training verified through proctors and examination TAPSTI allows for cross-training of personnel so professionals can learn from each other.
