Originally designed to train only agency-sponsored Reserve Officers, ROLEA has expanded to allow current students who have met identified qualifications, the opportunity to participate.
ROLEA is delivered in eight modules. It begins the first Tuesday of fall semester and generally ends the third week of May.
Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday night from 6 – 10 p.m., as well as some 8-hour classes on Saturdays and one Sunday.
The Saturday classes average two per month, until April and May when they increase to three per month. Total hours spent in class are just under 400; in addition, students will have approximately 100 hours of homework, as well as an exam at the end of each module.
