Applicants will need to pass a background check as well as obtain a sponsorship from a law enforcement agency. The sponsorship does not commit the law enforcement agency to hire the individual for employment, nor does it commit the individual to go to work at that agency, it is simply a requirement to ensure the individual has a clean record and is recommended for the program.

There are no tuition or fees for this class.

The class, as well as the exam for licensure/certification, are covered by the State of North Carolina. Students are responsible for the cost of books and a uniform, however financial aid is available to those who qualify.
