Arizona Leadership Program (ALP)
Target Audience: EXECUTIVE LEVEL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM - RANKS CHIEF THROUGH LIEUTENANT OR EQUIVALENT. Other supervisory personnel may be considered on case-by-case at the request of the agency head and approved by AZPOST In-Service Training Staff. Supervisory seat requests may be waitlisted. This course requires extensive participation during class, completion of homework assignments and projects while away from the in-class portion. Agencies should plan accordingly to support attendees. Electronic devices, i.e. laptop, tablet, notebook, etc. will be required for access to online component of course and are highly recommended for in-class notes and assistance.
NEW REGISTRATION PROCEDURES: For class reservations, the training coordinator shall submit request for seat in the ASSC system. All agencies shall be initially shown as waitlisted in the ASSC system. There will not be a traditional lottery for ALP class seats. AZPOST will determine registration priorities for those agencies on the waitlist. Training coordinators will be contacted to submit candidate names into the system for final registration. Prospective students must obtain agency head and training coordinator approval. Class size is limited to 30 students per session.
Costs: Each student/agency must purchase the 17th edition course text and online access code prior to Orientation date. The textbook and online access code can be purchased from any source so long as the ISBN is a match to required course code. Non-exempt personnel must resolve scheduling and overtime issues with their agency before registering for the course as there are mandatory homework assignments for each week of class.
Sworn personnel: AZPOST will reimburse agencies for their sworn students’ textbook cost. AZPOST will pay hotel costs for sworn personnel who live and work more than 50 miles from the class site. Reservations will be made by AZPOST for eligible students at the contracted hotel. Agencies with students in travel status are eligible for meal reimbursements according to the current Arizona Reimbursement Rate Index. Mileage is no longer reimbursed by AZPOST.
Civilian personnel: Agencies are responsible for all course costs (textbooks, hotel, meals, and/or mileage) for civilian personnel during the course. Unfortunately, these cannot be reimbursed by AZPOST.
Attire: Business casual (no jeans please). Alternate attire is required as part of the program and will be directed at times designated by staff. Advanced notice will be provided.
