Inland Boat Operator Training Program (IBOT)Up one level
The Inland Boat Operator Training Program (IBOT) was developed to enable the novice vessel operator the skills necessary to safely operate their vessel in a law enforcement capacity. This one week program focuses on law enforcement officers who infrequently operate boats, or have specific areas of responsibility on inland waterways.
Length: 5 Days (includes 1 night exercise)
The lead instructors for the IBOT are current and former law enforcement officers with extensive experience piloting government, commercial, and civilian vessels. Marine instructors have extensive investigative and police experience with a multitude of federal and state agencies and many have served in the U.S. Coast Guard. These instructors are highly skilled and experienced with law enforcement functions on lakes and inland waterways.
Prerequisites for Attendance
Students must be law enforcement officers with marine law enforcement duties that do not require offshore operations. The program involves long hours of underway vessel operations in all conditions. Students should be in good physical condition and capable of meeting established FLETC Practical Exercise Performance Requirements.
