Additional Information For Basic Abilities Testing 

Three companies have been approved by the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission to design and manage the BAT.  Those three companies are I/O Solutions, Morris & McDaniel and Miami Dade College. 

The BAT must be administered in Florida by a state-certified criminal training school, criminal justice selection center, or criminal justice agency.  Hillsborough Community College uses the Florida Basic Abilities Test (FBAT) designed by Miami Dade College.
