Professional Training Courses

EFSC's Public Safety Institute offers Advanced & Specialized Training Courses for professionals working as law enforcement/corrections and correctional probation officers.

  • Training Authorization Forms (15A/Agency Approval Letters) are required for all officers in order to attend classes.

  • ALL CLASSES ARE TUITION TRUST FUNDED FOR REGION VII SWORN OFFICERS. Seats are available to all others on a space available basis only. Inactive officers or non-sworn individuals who are not affiliated as paid full-time support personnel with a law enforcement or correctional agency may attend only those classes which indicate a Tuition Rate.

  • As a training center, we are not an employing agency and cannot enter inactive or non-sworn individuals training credit for classes into the FDLE/ATMS system. This must be done by a law enforcement or correctional employing agency.

  • Attendance Policy: Full attendance is mandatory for all Advanced & Specialized Courses.

  • Classes may be canceled if minimum enrollment is not met. There must be sufficient attendance to support the costs to run the class.
