Account Set Up & Registration
This page contains information for how to set up an account, and how to register for classes. There are two (2) types of accounts you can set up:
An Individual Account, or
An Account for your Organization
Individual Accounts are for students who are not affiliated with a municipality, or are not planning to have their organization pay for their tuition. Students who will be paying their own tuition fees should set up an Individual Account.
Organization Accounts are for business, organizations or municipalities who will be registering multiple students for classes and either paying tuition fees, or wish to be invoiced. Students who are affiliated with an organization, business or municipality and will not be paying tuition fees should first check with their organization to see if an Organization Account has been set up.
New Accounts: Two Simple Steps
Visit the NIPSTA registration page where you will find our entire catalog of public safety training courses. To register you must first create an account as an "individual" or an "organization". Creating an account involves two (2) simple steps.
Step 1: Enter Account Holder Information
If you are creating an account for a municipality or business - choose the "Organization" tab. If you are a student who will be paying your own costs - choose the "Individual" tab. While only a few fields are required, for billing and account management purposes - it's important to add as much information as possible. All new accounts require the creation of a password.
Step 2: Add Account Members
Other account members are employees, or affiliated members of your organization whom the account holder will be paying for, or billed for. You can add as many members to your account as you like. If you would like to skip this step, you can add members at a later date, when you register them for a course. Don't forget to "save & close" when you have finished.
That's it...you're done! To get started visit our registration page here.
Registering Students for a Course
Registering for a course (aka session) is simple and convenient. Start by visiting our registration page and logging in to your account. Once you have logged in, you will see our entire list of public safety training courses. You can browse the list, or filter and search by category.
Browse and Choose a Course
You can filter and search by category, or keyword. Location is always "NIPSTA Campus".
Add Students to your Course Cart
Once you've chosen the course (aka session) you want, you can add as many members (aka students) to the course as you like. Your entire account roster will be visible on the right showing all members that have been added to your account...either when it was set up, or during previous registrations. Additional members can be added to your account roster by choosing "add account member" at the bottom of the list.
Proceed to Checkout
Review your selection(s) and proceed to the checkout.

This page allows you to agree via electronic signature to 1) pay later, 2) that members registered are employees, and 3) that you agree to the credit terms. When you click the first "I agree" box, you will create a one-time electronic signature that you will attach to each waiver, for each member. Simply read the directions, follow the prompts, confirm and proceed to the checkout.
