Local Government Risk Academy — What to Expect


Public Entity Partners is committed to excellence in local government. We strive to be an essential local government resource for employee safety education and risk management services.

Because training is essential for loss control, employee development and organizational professionalism within local governmental entities, Public Entity Partners offers the Local Government Risk Academy to our members at no added cost. This online educational platform provides self-paced individual training that is accessible 24/7 from any computer with internet access.

With the Local Government Risk Academy, your entity can keep training documentation all in one place and receive reports on which employees have completed assigned training. Your entity may assign a learning administrator who will assign and track training progress. Training progress can be viewed in a dashboard format with assignment and certificate reports available.

Once a user has registered for the Local Government Risk Academy, he or she can log in directly from the Public Entity Partners website. Users will have access to more than 200 courses. Course categories include general safety, human resources, law enforcement, management, roadway and highway, and transit and fleet operations. 

Each course gives a brief description, which makes it easy to either assign the course or take it for your own benefit. The course catalog is available for searching for topic-specific assignments. 

In addition to courses for general administration, law enforcement professionals can select from nearly 90 courses that are eligible for TN POST continuing education requirements. Online courses may be used to meet 24 of the 40 TN POST continuing education requirements.

If you have questions about how to become your entity's learning administrator and start online training, please contact your member services representative, or send a request to MemberServices@PEPartners.org.
