Law Enforcement—Equivalency of Training

Become a Police Officer in Florida

Florida welcomes experienced Law Enforcement Officers.  Get your Equivalency of Training (EOT) at Florida's premier training facility, the Treasure Coast Public Safety Complex at Indian River State College! IRSC offers programs at the highest quality, and the lowest cost. Work in the beautiful Sunshine State, where first responders are appreciated!

The EOT process enables you to become exempt from having to complete the Florida Basic Recruit Training Program (BRTP). It is for qualified out-of-state officers, federal officers, Special Operations Forces and previously certified Florida officers pursuant to section 943.131(2) Florida Statutes and 11B-35.009(4)(5) Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.). Please see 11B-35.009 F.A.C. for more details.

Successful completion of the EOT course qualifies you to sit for the Florida State Officer Certification Examination (SOCE), which is available to take at IRSC every Monday and Tuesday.
