This accelerated credit makes it possible for a student completing one of the following Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission recruit programs:

A Corrections Officer Program AND a Law Enforcement Officer Program

AND currently holding CJSTC Concurrent Certification in both law enforcement and corrections through their agency, OR who has completed the training AND has successfully passed the CJSTC State Certification Examinations in both law enforcement and corrections making them eligible for both (dual) certifications, to receive 39 hours of college credit toward the Associate of Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice Technology (Dual Certified Officer Track).

Whenever a student appears to be eligible for articulated credits under this agreement, the Academic Advisor will be responsible for requesting an F.D.L.E. Automated Training Management System check on the student. This request will be submitted by the Academic Advisor to the Criminal Justice Institute which will be responsible to obtain confirmation of the student’s eligibility for the articulated credit and will forward such documentation to the Academic Advisor. Notwithstanding the above, the student shall be responsible to furnish proof of valid CJSTC Concurrent Certification in both law enforcement and corrections through their agency.
