American Military University is proud to have established strong education partnerships with leading public safety organizations and agencies around the nation. The strength of our educational programs relies on these partnerships to ensure our courses deliver relevant and current information to prepare graduates for leadership positions within public safety agencies.
Establishing an education partnership with AMU provides many benefits for organizations and agencies. Partnering with AMU helps your agency facilitate talent and leadership development through rigorous and relevant coursework delivered by an accredited and well-respected university. Such a partnership also has the potential to save your employees time and money by allowing them to earn educational credit for completed agency training.
Some of the benefits for AMU partners include:
- Cost-free access to webinar-based in-service training programs
