Public Safety Academy enrolling now

The Public Safety Academy at North Florida Community College is now accepting students for its Correctional Basic Recruit and Correctional Cross-Over to Law Enforcement programs. New classes are set to begin Jan. 21, 2014. Those interested in enrolling in upcoming classes are encouraged to contact the Public Safety Academy in early January (as soon as possible) to begin the application and enrollment process. Please note: the NFCC campus will be closed for its winter break holiday Dec. 19-Jan. 3; campus reopens Monday, Jan. 6. 

Students can complete the Correctional Basic Recruit program in about five months (420 Clock Hours); the Cross-Over to Law Enforcement program in approximately seven months (489 Clock Hours); or get a Combined Corrections and Law Enforcement Basic Dual Certification in just over a year (909 Clock Hours or 13 Months). Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 6-11 p.m. at the NFCC Public Safety Academy complex on the NFCC campus in Madison, Fla.
Individuals must be at least 18-years-old to enter NFCC’s Law Enforcement and Correctional Basic Recruit programs and must pass the Florida Criminal Justice Basic Abilities Test (CJBAT) before submitting an application for admission. The CJBAT can be taken on the NFCC campus. Official high school/GED diploma and transcripts and passing background checks are also required for admission. Financial assistance may be available for qualified students.

The NFCC Public Safety Academy is one of 40 criminal justice training centers approved by the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) to train basic recruits in law enforcement, corrections, recertification programs, and continuing workforce education. NFCC’s Correctional and Law Enforcement Basic Recruit programs prepare students for the certification exams required for all Florida officers.
