The FTCC Law Enforcement Training department is committed to offering timely, relevant, and professional training commensurate with established mandates of the Sheriff’s Commission, the North Carolina Training and Standards Commission, and/or the Private Protective Services Board.
The majority of the course offerings are restricted to law enforcement or emergency services personnel. Some security course offerings are open to the general public, with the state prescribed registration fee required.
Courses are conducted by our staff and a carefully selected group of experienced police and security officer trainers.

If you have an interest in becoming a police officer, check out the Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) program.
