Tallahassee Community College's Florida Public Safety Institute (FPSI) will hold a course for Private Security Officer-Unarmed D License beginning April 9 and continuing through April 20.
The course, part of FPSI's Private Security Officer Program, will meet from 6 to 10 p.m. in the FPSI Classroom Building, Room 217.
While attending the 40-hour course, participants will gain a better understanding of the criminal justice system, including learning about basic first aid, patrol techniques, ethics & professional conduct, Florida Chapter 493 Statues, emergency procedures, fire prevention, crime & accident prevention techniques, terrorism in the United States and much more.
Through TCC's Private Security Officer Training Program, students can meet the minimum standards for licensure through the Department of Agriculture. This license ensures the public is served by private security officers who are ethical, qualified and well-trained.
To earn the license, students must attend 100 percent of the program and successfully pass the final written exam, as well as the practical exam.
Cost of the course is $161.40 and payment must be received one week prior to the start of the course.
Admission, application and registration must be completed prior to attending the course. Students can apply in person at the FPSI Conference Center.
