    S.M.I.L.E. – Stress Management in Law Enforcement – is a 15-week course in which the first half of the semester will be spent learning about stress management and its relationship to nutrition and fitness, and the second half will focus on physical agility training to satisfy the finesse components of the P.O.W.E.R. Test.

    At the conclusion of this course, students will be tested in accordance with the P.O.W.E.R. Test requirements, and upon successfully passing the test, will receive a certification card which can be presented as proof that they have met the P.O.W.E.R. Test standards.

    Triton College Criminal Justice Administration (CJA) Coordinator John Augustine noted that in Illinois, one half of all law enforcement candidates fail the P.O.W.E.R. Test, making them ineligible to join the police academy. A person may be prepared mentally for the job, but they must be prepared physically as well,” he said. “This is a one-of-a-kind course that can help more candidates prepare to pass their physical agility test and give law enforcement agencies a larger talent to pool to select from.

    The course is recommended for criminal justice students interested in finding employment immediately following graduation, as well as law enforcement candidates who may have previously failed the P.O.W.E.R. Test and are interested in retesting. The S.M.I.L.E. course (CJA 107) will be offered at the college’s tuition rate for a three-credit hour course, plus academic and verification process fees.
