Funding FAQs: 

Q: What is happening with DirectCourse funding?

A: MFP and BIP dollars are not currently expected to continue funding the use of the DirectCourse system. Without a commitment from the State or DHS for further funding, current system access will continue through June 30, 2019.

Q: What will be the cost to continue to use DirectCourse?

A: These details are being worked out with Elsevier and no specific price point has been finalized. The cost to use the system will be per learner, per year. IACP is negotiating a reduced rate for IACP members.

Q: What will happen to non-licensed (non-DirectCourse) training currently uploaded or linked to the LMS?

A:  Access to training through the LMS will be determined by agency participation.  All IACP Technical Assistance Program training currently on the DirectCourse LMS are also available on the IACP website.

Q: If funding is not continued and if we decide not to pay for access, will we have access to our learner records?

A: If further funding is not secured, access to the LMS after June 30, 2019 will be based on agency commitment to pay for system use. Until then, learner transcripts are available for download. We highly recommend you begin this process now.  Downloading of learner transcripts can be done by any system administrator with administrative scope for that learner. If you are unclear regarding the reporting process, email us for instructions or to set up a meeting for a walkthrough.
