The Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) Course is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills expected of the entry-level law enforcement officer. Many of our instructors are former or current law enforcement officers who bring the added value of their actual on-the-job experiences which enhances their presentation. This course should be taken by newly employed or prospective law enforcement officers seeking to meet the certification requirements of the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission or the North Carolina Sheriff’s Education and Training Standards Commission.
BLET is typically offered three (3) times per year; two (2) day courses and one night course and consists of 647 hours of instruction. The day course meets Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. for 18 weeks; while the night course meets Monday – Thursday from 5:30 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. for 35 weeks. Weekend classes are required occasionally in both the day and night courses; Saturday and Sunday hours vary.
