The Public Safety Academy at North Florida Community College is now accepting students for its Law Enforcement Recruit, Correctional Basic Recruit and Cross-Over programs. New classes are set to begin Aug. 12. Those interested in enrolling are encouraged to contact the Public Safety Academy now. 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.
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 and require rigorous physical demands upon the recruit in defensive tactics, firearms, vehicle operations and physical fitness training. Acceptance in these programs are limited to meeting requirements established by the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, North Florida Community College, The Public Safety Academy, and our Criminal Justice Advisory Board.
Students can complete training in one year or less. Those interested in training at NFCC are encouraged to begin the enrollment process now. You 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.
