Begin the Application Process

Search the FLETC Application for Student Training (FAST) for the programs you wish to attend and begin an application. When completing the FLETC application, please be certain to complete all required information accurately. Social Security Numbers and Dates of Birth are required for all FLETC training.  Your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will be protected according to federal regulations.

The application is only the first step. You will not be enrolled or registered at the time of the application. An administrator will review your submission and if FLETC can accommodate your request, you will receive an email notifying you of your selection approximately 3 weeks prior to the beginning of the class.  However, programs may cancel as late as 20 working days prior to the program start date if a minimum number of students are not registered.

Once an administrator has contacted you on your approved enrollment, you will be sent information regarding the location of the program, course requirements and all other pertinent class information.

Step-by-step instructions on how to use FAST for online registration is provided in the FAQ section. If for some reason you are having problems registering or if you find difficulties with our website, please contact us at 1-800-743-5382 or stateandlocaltraining@dhs.gov.

You will receive a confirmation notice via email as soon as the class has been confirmed. Typically, programs are confirmed Three (3) weeks prior to the start date; however, programs may cancel as late as twenty (20) working days prior to the program start date if the minimum numbers of students are not registered.  The best way to apply for a FLETC course is via the FLETC Application for Student Training (F.A.S.T.) online registration system.  The FAST system is new to FLETC, and makes the application process easier to understand and more efficient.

If for any reason you are unable to attend a program for which you are registered for it is the Center’s policy that we be notified, in writing, no less than twenty (20) working days prior to the class start date.  You can contact the FLETC by calling 1-800-743-5382 or you may send an email to stateandlocaltraining@dhs.gov

Cancellations received less than 20 working days before the start date of the training may result in program costs, in full or partial, being billed regardless of attendance.
