The Miami-Dade Public Safety Training Institute (MDPSTI) is proud to offer the State of Florida Basic Law Enforcement Certification training program. The program is for individuals who want to obtain their certification as a Police Officer. Our Independent Police Academy (IPA) is open to both individuals who are being sponsored by a law enforcement agency or private citizens wishing to become certified.
Set in the City of Doral, the MDPSTI offers a fully equipped training facility and certified training staff. Our centralized South Florida location, with mild climate welcomes students from not only Miami-Dade County but from all parts of the country.
The IPA delivers a complete training experience. This experience will include a combination of both classroom instruction and practical skills training. In addition, the Academy also incorporates the elements of discipline, ethical comport, physical conditioning, and an understanding of the paramilitary structure fundamental to all law enforcement agencies. A trainee must demonstrate proficiency and successfully complete all mandatory training requirements in order to be eligible to take the State of Florida certification examination. Once successfully completed, the student will be certified as a police officer.
The MDPSTI depending on several constraints, will conduct a minimum of two full-time Independent Police Academies a year. Though exact start dates vary, each accepted student will be notified personnally. Class size is limited and applications are processed on a first come, first served basis. For academy dates, deadlines, and all other IPA related announcements, please continue to visit our website.
