Basic Programs

The following programs are designated as either Center Basic or Center Integrated Basic training and are designed for full-time law enforcement agents or officers from our Partner Organizations (PO). Each PO sets its own standards for recruiting new employees and designating who will attend basic training at FLETC.

Registration is through the Federal agency employing or sponsoring the trainee. The employing agency will notify the trainee of their class dates.

Attending a basic program at FLETC is typically a requirement for employment with a U.S. federal agency. To search for law enforcement employment opportunities with a federal agency, please visit
