The Institute provides initial professional training of candidates for law enforcement service, as well as professional training, retraining and advanced training of law enforcement officers, including those who are in the Presidential reserve.
The courses are conducted on the basis of the approved annual Schedule, curriculum and training programs.
The training is differentiated according to the subject and the contingent of students.
For these purposes, uniform standards were introduced for the organization of courses, the development of training programs, as well as the preparation of teaching materials, since the current regulations contained only general requirements for the educational process.
The Institute consists of:
1) Management of organizational and methodological work;
2) Departments of prosecutor’s supervision;
3) Departments of special training in countering global threats;
4) Departments of investigative and operational work;
5) Departments of service training.
Since the establishment of the Academy, over 11,000 law enforcement officers have been trained.
In the form of distance learning, 12 advanced training courses were conducted for 2,457 law enforcement officers.
The training took place on 2 platforms: in the distance learning system of the Academy on the departmental information portal and online classes through the Microsoft Teams program with the connection of participants via the Internet.
Initial professional training
Joint Order No. 80 of June 26, 2020 approved the Selection Rules for initial professional training and the conditions for its passage for persons entering the service of the Prosecutor’s office, the Anti-corruption Service and the Economic Investigation Service, as well as the grounds for their expulsion from the initial professional training.
Since January 5, 2021, 169 students have been enrolled in the training (prosecutor’s offices — 150, EIS -19).
The students signed a contract, got acquainted with the order of enrollment, the Rules of living in the hostel and the Internal Regulations under the signature.
For students, free comfortable accommodation is provided in the hostel of the Academy (spacious rooms with showers and bathrooms for 4 people, rooms for leisure and consumer services, a dining room, etc.). For female students, a separate building is provided.
It also provides for three meals a day and the payment of a scholarship.
The training period for students of the Prosecutor’s office is one year, the anti-corruption service and the Economic Investigation Service – six months.
The educational process takes place in accordance with the curriculum and schedule.
The main feature of the initial professional training will be the practice-oriented training of candidates for service under the specifics of each law enforcement agency with a mandatory internship.
This approach will allow you to instill in-depth professional knowledge and skills. After training, the young cadres will be ready for full-fledged service literally from the very first days.
The goal of the Academy is to help students successfully complete their professional adaptation and work effectively.
An important area of educational activity is the training of employees who are in the Presidential Reserve of the leadership of law enforcement agencies.
This educational project is being implemented in fulfillment of the task set by the Head of State to create a new formation of leaders — leaders and modern managers.
To ensure a high level of training, authoritative scientists and practitioners are involved in the classes, including foreign experts (USA, UK and Singapore) and representatives of the management staff of government agencies.
The Presidential Reserve courses at the Academy of Law Enforcement Agencies are provided for by the Law “On Law Enforcement Service”, Presidential Decrees “On the formation of the Presidential Reserve of the Leadership of Law Enforcement and Special State Bodies” (No. 624 of 28.08.2013) and “On the Establishment of the Academy of Law Enforcement Agencies under the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Republic of Kazakhstan” (No. 15 of 04.05.2015).
For 5.5 years, we have gained significant experience in conducting our own courses, which received positive feedback from students.
A unique training program has been developed to train effective managers of the new formation, who are able to think outside the box and predict, make quick decisions and quickly adapt to changing working conditions.
The program is focused on improving professional and managerial competencies and includes topics on the tactics of negotiating processes in crisis situations, the development of analytical thinking and leadership skills, and working with modern information technologies.
To date, 130 law enforcement officers have been trained in it in 9 courses.
The quality of the educational process is ensured by the best national experts of the Academy, the first heads of law enforcement agencies.
Advanced training courses
Advanced training courses are conducted in a new format and are focused on practice.
In particular, the organization of training includes three main stages: “Studying the needs of the practice in knowledge and the formation of the topics of advanced training courses”, “Determining the most effective forms of training, taking into account the specifics of the topics of advanced training courses” and “Evaluating the practical effectiveness of each course of training and making appropriate adjustments to the work”.
The expected effect of the implementation of these approaches is an increase in the efficiency of the employee who has been trained, a reduction in the number of shortcomings and omissions in the work caused by a lack of knowledge and skills.
Classes at the courses are conducted by the faculty of the Academy.
In addition, judges of the Supreme Court, employees of the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Economic Investigation Service, the Anti-Corruption Service and the Accounts Committee are invited as lecturers.
More than 10,000 law enforcement officers have taken advanced training courses.
Special initial training
A fundamentally new form of training is being used for young employees of the Prosecutor’s office, the anti-corruption service and the Economic Investigation service.
After their appointment, young employees take full-fledged monthly training courses at the Academy based on advanced educational technologies, and the practical component of the curriculum has been strengthened.
Training of young employees is carried out in accordance with the curricula developed on the basis of the Passport of competence (industry-wide, informational, written, communicative, professional).
Lectures and practical classes at the courses are conducted by employees of the Academy, the Prosecutor General’s Office and other authorized bodies.
Attention is also paid to the physical, fire and combat training of young employees.
The Academy implements a method of assessing the level of competence of young prosecutors by conducting the “Assessment” method.
The professional level is determined in the course of solving case problems that model the daily work of the prosecutor.
Such skills as: the ability to work with departmental information systems, the preparation of legal documents, the organization of work on the branches of supervision, to analyze problematic issues, to creatively approach their solution, etc. are tested.
From 2016 to 2020, 1,513 law enforcement officers were trained.
In 2021, it is planned to train more than 250 law enforcement officers.
