WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM AUGUST 12-18, 2020 UCW 15 FTCC Basic Law Enforcement Training Academy prepares students for an exciting career and supports our community by YOVANA VEST EDUCATION Imagine this scenario: at approximately 2300 hours, you are dispatched as a member of law enforcement to a residence with a possible home invasion. You received information that the caller was a male child approximately 12 years of age and hiding in a closet. The child said he heard his back door kicked in and people walking around in his house. The child was crying on the phone, whispering that he was home alone, scared and didn't know what to do. Does this type of challenging situation posi- tively motivate you when you consider a career? If so, a career in law enforcement could be for you. Fayetteville Technical Community College offers convenient ways for you to learn about being a law enforcement officer and how to get started in this rewarding career. FTCC conducts a Basic Law Enforcement Training Informational/Application Workshop once a month. If you're not sure if law enforcement is for you but want to learn more about FTCC's BLET Academy, we invite you to a workshop to meet the staff. We will discuss what to expect before, during and after the academy. We encourage you to bring your support (sig- nificant other) with you, so we will be able to answer any and all questions you or your sig- nificant other may have. For those who want information and are ready to start the application process, sign up for our information session and application workshop with the BLET staff. Print out the application packet and bring it with you to the workshop. By the time you leave, the majority of your application process will be complete, and you will be on your way to a rewarding career in law enforcement! For those who already know what BLET is all about, you can skip the informational session and move right into getting the application pro- cess completed with BLET staff assistance. Print out the application packet and bring it with you to the workshop. Sign up for our application workshop where a BLET staff member will assist you through the lengthy process. If you already know a career in law enforce- ment is for you and you are ready to complete the application process on your own, no prob- lem! Download the application from home and get started. I recommend starting the applica- tion process 5-6 months prior to your desired class start date. Anything submitted more than 5-6 months in advance could expire before the class begins. Get started by signing up two ways: (1) Visit our website at www.faytechcc.edu and type "BLET" in the search box. Click on "How to Enroll" to sign up for the workshop, or just download the BLET Application. (2) Visit our Facebook page at FTCC Basic Law Enforcement Training BLET and click on the "Sign Up" button located on our cover photo. We look forward to serving you at FTCC, and your community awaits your service as a mem- ber of law enforcement. Contact me at vesty@faytechcc.edu if you have questions. Monthly workshops provide information on applying for the Basic Law Enforcement Training Academy at FTCC. YOVANA VEST, FTCC de- partment chair of BLET. Com- ments?
