News from the Georgia Public Safety Training Center

Honorable Coroners and Deputy Coroners,

I hope this correspondence finds each of you doing well.

Several years ago, the Georgia Board of Public Safety raised the tuition rate for all students attending the Georgia Public Safety Training Center.  The rate was increased from $12.50 per hour to $15 per hour.  The Georgia Public Safety Training Center decided at that time not to raise the tuition for the coroner training so the tuition has remained at the old rate.  Effective July 1, 2013, the coroner tuition will be raised to $15 per hour in order to be consistent with all other tuition rates at the training center.  Under the new rate, the annual coroner in service training total will be $360 and the coroner basic course will be $600.  During their January 9, 2013 meeting, the Georgia Coroners Training Council was advised of this new tuition rate.

If you have any questions concerning this new tuition, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
