The purpose of this program is to train students who want a dual certification in law enforcement and corrections. To take the following courses, students must provide evidence they have completed a Law Enforcement Officer Basic Recruit Training program and passed the State Officer Certification Examination. Upon satisfactory completion of the courses listed, students will be eligible to take the State Officer Certification Examination for Correctional Officers. Successful scores on both state exams enable the student to receive dual certification as a correctional officer and as a law enforcement officer. This course is the Criminal Justice Standards & Training Commission approved Law Enforcement Officer Crossover Training to Florida CMS Correctional Officer Basic Recruit Training program.
