We offer some of the finest coursework and instructors available to give our students a realistic view of public safety and security occupations. We have small classes, especially in the lab components in the forensic, firearms, and dispatch courses, which give students a more personal approach to learning.

Students should be aware that prior felony convictions and misdemeanor domestic violence convictions are disqualifying for employment in public safety. Prior substance abuse and other disqualifiers may apply in specific positions related to law enforcement or forensics.
