Licensing Disclosure

FDLTCC’s law enforcement program is intended to prepare students to successfully pass the Minnesota Peace Standards and Training (POST) board examination. Most other states retain some form of academy training followed by certification of the individual officer. Minnesota requires those aspiring to work in law enforcement to complete an educational program and pass a state board exam. Licensing itself only occurs when eligible candidates are appointed to a peace officer position and certain selection standards are met. Licensing is a cooperative process between the POST Board, the hiring agency and the candidate In some cases state agencies allow people with peace officer experience from another state to meet licensure requirements by taking a reciprocity exam. If you are considering work in a state other than Minnesota, please contact the relevant state licensing agency to determine if there are reciprocity exams available.


I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
