Law Enforcement Academy


Courses and programs offered through our Law Enforcement Academy  

Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) Curriculum Certificate

We offer a Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) certificate. This program is designed to give students essential skills required for entry-level employment as law enforcement officers with state, county, or municipal governments, or with private enterprise. 

Upon graduation, BLET students receive a curriculum certificate and are qualified to take certification examinations mandated by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission and/or the North Carolina Sheriffs Education and Training Standards Commission.

Entrance Requirements

The BLET program has specific entrance requirements, which are available on our website. Go to www.abtech.edu and enter "BLET" in the Search field. Or you can go to www.abtech.edu, "Con Ed Students," "Emergency Services," and then "Basic Law Enforcement Training." This gives the entrance requirements and three forms to download: Steps to Enrollment, the Academy Application, and the Sponsorship Form.

The forms are also available at the Woodfin Site, at the receptionist’s desk.

In-Service Training Classes

The Law Enforcement Academy offers regularly scheduled in-service training topics such as:

  • Narcotics
  • Firearms
  • Defensive Tactic
  • Office Safety
  • Radar Non-Lethal Weapon
  • Investigations
  • Rapid Deployment
  • Counter Terrorism

Annual mandatory in-service training courses are also available, and the course schedule for both academy and online is available through our website.  

Online Training

Submit all training requests via email to Daryl Fisher at robertdfisher@abtech.edu or fax to (828) 281-9714. Requests for training must be received five days prior to class.
