Explorers are required to donate at least 10 hours a month which include weekly trainings. The trainings cover a wide variety of topics including ethics, physical fitness, tactics and legal issues dealing with various different types of law enforcement activities. Most of the trainings include lecture and plenty of "hands on," role-playing scenarios.
