Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 464-6-.08 - Guest Instructor Recognition. Amended

Current through Rules and Regulations filed through April 4, 2022

Because of the inherent nature of certain professions or particular skill levels achieved, certain individuals may be requested to instruct. Such persons shall be designated as guest instructors and shall be recognized by Council as such. Guest Instructor recognition shall be granted only by the written request of the academy director or a professional criminal justice association recognized by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council. No Georgia certified officer shall be recognized as a guest instructor unless they have been awarded a "terminal degree" in the area of expertise that they are requesting to instruct.

A "terminal degree" is defined as the highest degree available in any given academic discipline.

Common examples of terminal degrees are Juris Doctorate (JD), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Doctor of Medicine (MD).

POST shall have the sole determination in deeming an individual's terminal degree as sufficient to instruct in any given subject regardless of whether they hold a peace officer certification in the State of Georgia.
