Default Reserve Officer application question regarding listing training.

Filling out an app for Escondido PD reserves at the moment, and would appreciate some opinions from serving or retired LEOs: would you list taking handgun or carbine classes given at Front Sight (or any other non-POST sanctioned provider) under the "other training" category?

My initial instinct is to go with "no", since it's not a sanctioned provider, at least to my knowledge, and appear unprofessional to list.

I would say don't list it. I would think They are looking for CPR, AED, forensic cert, etc... Certs of that nature... In my opinion your classes fall with an HSC CERT which most probably do not put down...

Don't do it. Nobody would care and it might work against you. You don't want to list too much stuff which might be sensitive topics for those screeners.

Stick to stuff like EMT, foreign languages, etc.
