If yes, you must complete the FRS New Employee Certification Form.
Section 943.17, Florida Statutes, directs the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission to give a test to basic recruit training graduates and candidates seeking an exemption from a Commission-Approved Basic Recruit Program. The certification test provides the Commission with assurance that each person employed or appointed as a sworn officer in this state has the minimum knowledge required to perform competently.
The Officer Certification test will be given at the end of a Commission-approved Basic Recruit Training Program or an approved Certification Examination Preparation Training Course. The test will be based upon an approved training exemption for out-of-state candidates.


___ ___ enroll in a Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission approved Basic Recruit Training Program within 180 days of initial employment and successfully complete the training within 18 months after enrollment if you are not currently a certified Correctional Probation Officer.

___ ___ pay an additional Florida Department of Law Enforcement test fee if you fail the first test and again take the test on the first available date? Failure to do so will result in termination of your employment with the department. Additionally, if you fail the Florida Department of Law Enforcement examination three times, you will be terminated from employment with the department.
___ ___ reimburse the department for Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission approved advanced and specialized training taken for promotion consideration, mandatory retraining, salary incentive, or career development purposes if you do not successfully complete the training due to unsatisfactory performance or withdrawal for any reason other than death in the immediate family or personal illness or injury. The reimbursement will be made to the department within thirty (30) days in accordance with “Minimum Training Requirements,” procedure 209.101. If you fail to make repayment within thirty (30) days, you understand and agree to have the repayment of the obligated amount deducted from any regular wages, annual leave payments, sick leave payments, special/holiday compensation payments or any other payments due to you.

I further understand that if I terminate employment on my own initiative within 2 years, I shall reimburse the department for the full cost of tuition and other course expenses paid for me by the department during the academy training period in accordance with Chapter 943.16, Florida Statutes.

I hereby swear or affirm there are no misrepresentations or omissions in or falsifications of the foregoing statements or in the answers to questions on the Willingness Questionnaire. I am aware that should an investigation disclose such misrepresentations, omissions, or falsifications, my application will be rejected and I will be disqualified for employment with the Florida Department of Corrections or, if after my acceptance for employment, subsequent investigation should disclose misrepresentations, omissions, or falsifications, it will be just cause for my immediate dismissal.
