Training Academy Preparation (TAP Class)  

 
The Orange County Sheriff’s department in partnership with Santa Ana College developed this 16-hour course to assist individuals entering the basic academy.   We have experienced that recruits at times need this stepping-stone to master their confidence or to bring them up to the level of more experienced recruits.  Training includes: 
 
  • Honor Code
  • Drill (including basic movements, flag ceremony and marching)
  • Diet and Nutrition
  • Overview of Physical Training
  • Reporting and Speeches

Inspection Grounds 

 Non-sponsored recruits and sponsored recruits are highly recommended to attend.  We are confident that every individual will benefit from this course and will be better prepared for their experience as a basic academy recruit.
