This course is 80 hours in length, completed over a 2-week period at the Burien campus of the WSCJTC. The Basic Equivalency process represents an alternative challenge to the regular Academy program, and is available to previously certified officers upon the request of the respective agency head. Typically, an equivalency applicant is an officer who must re-certify due to a substantial break in law enforcement employment (60 months or less), or an officer who has attained basic law enforcement certification through successful completion of another state's training academy program.
A Basic Law Enforcement Equivalency certificate places the recipient in the same stead as if he/she had successfully completed the regular academy program. Such certification requires the fulfillment of certain prerequisites and successful completion of the 80-hour Equivalency Academy consisting of written examinations, practical exercises and orientation training.
