Public Safety

Welcome to the NFCC Public Safety Academy

This website is provided as a service to the law enforcement and corrections agencies, their officers and the citizens of the counties we serve. We want your visit to our page to be as "user friendly" as possible.


Corrections

BASIC RECRUIT LAW ENFORCEMENT, CORRECTIONS AND CROSS-OVER CLASSES

North Florida Community College is one of the 40 approved Criminal Justice Training Centers certified by the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) to teach Law Enforcement and Corrections Basic Recruit classes which prepare students for the certification exams required for all Florida officers.

ENROLL NOW: NFCC is currently accepting students for its Law Enforcement and Corrections Basic Recruit programs. Programs are open entry with classes beginning every few weeks. Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 6-11 p.m. at the NFCC Public Safety Academy complex (Bldg. 35). Students can complete training in one year or less and be ready to begin a career in public safety, corrections or law enforcement.

Those interested in training at NFCC are encouraged to begin the enrollment process now. Students must be at least 18-years-old to enter either program. Admission requirements include completing an NFCC admission application, passing the Florida Criminal Justice Basic Abilities Test, submitting official high school or GED diploma and transcripts, and passing background checks. Financial assistance may be available for qualified students.


NEW PROGRAM OPPORTUNITY: 

In addition we are pleased to announce a new program, the Combined Corrections and Law Enforcement Dual Certification. This course will allow students to seek both a certificate in Basic Corrections and in Law Enforcement simultaneously. Because of the length of this combo program, students may apply for financial aid, such as the PELL Grant. You may contact the Office of Financial Aid at (850) 973-1621 or access the FASFA webpage at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

  • The cost of the combination class of Corrections and law Enforcement is approximately $4,300.00
  • This course will also run Monday thru Thursday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. including some weekends.
  • The length of this program is 919 hours over approximately 14 months
  • The CJBAT test must be taken for both Law Enforcement and Corrections for the combination classes.
