TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 13, 2011) –
On June 28, students in the Corrections Basic Recruit Academy #382 graduated from the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy (PTLEA) at Tallahassee Community College’s Florida Public Safety Institute (FPSI).
The class has since learned it has achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement State Officer Certification Exam (SOCE).
Passing the SOCE following completion of an academy is required prior to employment as a corrections officer in Florida.
“I am very proud of the students and instructors who worked extremely hard to accomplish this goal,” said Andrea Blalock, Corrections Coordinator.
“The state average among all other academies in Florida is 83 percent. To achieve a 100 percent pass rate is a great evaluation of what the students learned at PTLEA.”
The next full-time class begins September 6. For more information, contact Andrea Blalock at (850) 201-7659 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
