Easily accessible through airport and interstate travel, the Chipola College Criminal Justice Training Center provides professional one-stop convenience for its Equivalency of Training (EOT) students. We have the availability of extended-stay, discounted accommodation rates at local Inns and suites, and numerous restaurants and shopping facilities. While on campus, students are welcomed at Chipola’s On-Site Cafeteria.

Who is eligible for equivalency of training assessment?

Out-of-State, military, federal and previously certified Florida officers with less than eight years break in service.

If you want to become a Florida certified law enforcement officer, you will be required to successfully complete a simple to complete process:

    • Successful completion of a 40 hour High Liability Proficiency Review Course (Tuition $750)
    • Pass the Florida Law Enforcement Officer Certification State Exam


Students are provided with current curriculum books, containing all the information necessary to successfully pass the written state examination. Additionally, during the EOT training course an optional state exam preparation/review class is offered at no additional charge.

Equivalency of training classes are offered throughout the year, but the class sizes are limited, so you should confirm your date as soon as possible.

If I am completing your Form 76, I would like to have the application and required documentation at least 21 days before the class start date.  Meeting this deadline does not guarantee completion.
