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 a non-profit 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. We are a non-profit corporation registered in Georgia and filing as a 501 (c) (3) with the federal government. Our staff all work as volunteers.
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 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.
We are Looking For Good Interns for 2015
Tapsti.org provides research, analysis and training to public safety college students, public safety personnel, and the public at large. In 2015 Tapsti.org is branching into web-based training delivery, Officer Wellness, and victimology services. We plan to increase public awareness, Officer expectation levels, and the current public safety paradigm through national outreach. We accept applications for internships to supplement our staff on a rolling basis. Internships are open to highly-qualified undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent graduates.
Responsibilities for interns include research and analysis. We provide you with the template learning materials used for courseware and ask you to help us prepare lesson introductions, exam questions and answers, and summaries. Your greatest asset is your ability to write well. Successful internship candidates should expect rewarding work helping to train others, working at your own pace, and working from the convenience of your own internet connection. Extensive experience with programming is not required but a good familiarity with computers and the internet is a necessity because everything we do with our interns is digital.
We offer only remote internship. Internships are open to US citizens/residents or individuals authorized to work in the United States. Tapsti.org does not serve as a sponsor for internship work authorization.
Internships are unpaid. Tapsti.org cannot offer financial compensation to interns, but does offer a positive public safety work culture. Hours are extremely flexible as interns work according to their own schedule. All we ask is they complete work assignments on time so we can program the lessons involved according to our development schedule.
If you are interested in applying for an intern position at Tapsti.org please send the following:
