BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — The Public Safety Institute at Eastern Florida State College is recruiting for its upcoming 911 Public Safety Telecommunications Night Academy.
The program will run Monday through Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The deadline to apply for this part-time program is Sept. 4. Classes begin on Sept. 29.
FULLY ACCREDITED, LICENSED, CERTIFIED
The Public Safety Institute at Eastern Florida State College is fully accredited, licensed or certified through: The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), The Florida Bureau of Fire Standards and Training (BFST), The Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for Emergency Medical Service Professionals (CoAEMSP), and the Florida Department of Health (DOH).
The mission of EFSC’s Public Safety Institute is to provide quality training and education to current public safety practitioners and men and women entering the public safety and criminal justice fields, preparing them for today’s workforce, to serve and safeguard their communities.
The Public Safety Institute is home to the Brevard Police Testing & Selection Center — a regional resource that tests and screens people pursuing public safety careers.
Brevard Police Testing & Selection Center is the primary point-of-contact for applicants wishing to attend the Law Enforcement Academy, receive Equivalency of Training evaluation or apply for inclusion in the county-wide employment pool.
Explore the EFSC’s Public Safety Institute web pages to find specific application information that’s customized for each program. Be sure to work with a program coordinator or advisor as you plan your program. Careers in public safety often require an increased level of background checks, testing and screening.
Be prepared for that increased scrutiny for our limited access programs because of Florida law and administrative code requirements about who’s eligible to enter a public safety/law enforcement training program.
