Equivalency of Training (EOT)

The EOT course is designed for out-of-state, federal, and previously certified Florida officers to obtain Florida certification. Officers will be exempt from having to complete the full basic recruit academy. Instead, they will complete a condensed version of the basic recruit training to become eligible to take the State Officer Certification Exam and start the process to become a Florida certified officer.
