PA Virtual Training Network (PAVTN)

PAVTN.Net Training for Officers by Officers

We partnered with PA Chiefs of Police (PCPA) in 2012 to plan, design and develop the Pennsylvania Virtual Training Network (, which provides over 25,000 officers access to the essential training needed to perform their duties in a complex, ever-changing environment. Over the years, we have worked closely with PCPA providing technology consulting, instructional design, eLearning course development and a learning management solution. PAVTN includes dozens of eLearning courses designed and developed by our team, including award-winning courses on post-traumatic stress disorder and human trafficking.

With a growing number of courses and hundreds of thousands of hours of training delivered, PAVTN continues to evolve - adding new courses and features to enhance the learning experience. To improve the learning management, police administrators use our ecoLearn™ LMS to access up-to-date training records, manage registrations, modify website content, send email notifications, and produce reports. In addition, curriculum can require successful completion of pre-requisite modules before accessing exams and more advanced courses. Officers use ecoLearn to manage their user profiles, view their transcripts, and print certificates.
