NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, all OPOTA classes will be canceled until August 28. Some courses will still be held via distance or e-learning. In these cases, you will be contacted by the law enforcement training officer who teaches the course. We will continue to provide updates as new information is available.


In an effort to improve customer service, on October 27, 2012 the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy launched a new online registration system, giving our law enforcement clients a more efficient and effective course registration alternative.  The new online registration system is accessible via OHLEG and allows users to submit course registration requests electronically.  Those electronic training requests must still be approved by an approved agency designee prior to enrollment in a course.  Here’s how it works:
  1. The officer will log onto OHLEG, search for the desired course, and register for a course
  2. An e-mail will be sent to the authorized approver(s) within your agency, notifying them of the training request
  3. One of your authorized approvers must log onto OHLEG and approve or disapprove the training request
  4. Once approved or disapproved, both the approver and the officer will immediately receive an e-mail confirming the registrant’s status for the course
Please call 740-845-2703 for more information on how to establish agency approvers or with any questions or concerns regarding this new registration alternative.
