CLI Graduation | Public Safety Training

I recently attended the Civilian Leadership Institute (CLI) five month leadership program and can confidently say it was by far the best training I have received in the 30 years of my career. The topics are timely and on-point for civilian supervisors and managers. The presenters are experienced, knowledgeable and engaging. Their energy always left me wanting more at the end of each session – and eagerly looking forward to the next session.


I made personal and professional connections that I will forever cherish. I would recommend this class for any line level employee who has supervisor potential, new supervisors finding their way, or current supervisors in need of a kick-start!

    Payment, Refund & Transfer Policy

    A lot of effort and planning goes into each and every CLI class in order to present the highest level of civilian leadership training in the public safety profession. The demand for seats in each class is very high and in most classes result in a waiting list for a spot to open up. Therefore the following Payment, Refund and Transfer Policy has been implemented to maintain the integrity and quality of the CLI program.


    Please read our Payment, Refund & Transfer Policy below thoroughly:


    If invoiced, you must pay the full tuition within 30 days of receiving the invoice to secure your spot in the class.  If your payment is not received within 30 days, you will be removed from the roster.


    As a general rule, there are NO refunds. Under extenuating circumstances, a refund may be authorized, if the request is made directly from the Chief of Police, Sheriff, or agency head and in consultation with the President of Embassy Consulting Services, Josef Levy.


    Transfers to future CLI classes will generally be discouraged. However, transfer requests will be considered under certain extenuating circumstances (family emergency, medical issue, etc). Transfer requests must come, in writing, from an authorized representative from the agency/organization (other than the participant) and will be considered for approval by the President of Embassy Consulting Services, Josef Levy.
