MATC conducts in-person Police Academy training
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- You can learn a lot of things online these days, but when you're trying to become a police officer, virtual classes only go so far.
MATC conducted an in-person training session of its Police Academy class at the Oak Creek campus Thursday.
Organizers say some lessons need to be taught face-to-face.
"Well it's critical because in our area of protective services, you can't do online work, you can do a little -- but imagine what a police officer, a firefighter, a paramedic can do in a field," said Russ Spahn of MATC, Protective Services. "They're all hands-on."
A lot of work was done before Thursday's session to make sure the students were safe.
MATC is offering in-person training for students enrolled in professions that are considered essential by the state.
