Prerequisite: This course is designed for Law Enforcement personnel only.
Cost:

BLEA Cost 2015 - 2016
The Legislature mandated a 25% (plus ammunition) cost-share for all each recruit. The sponsoring agency will be billed after the first day of class and payment is expected prior to graduation. Non-mandated agencies are responsible for the full-cost, to include lodging and meals. Please see the following description:

Mandated Agencies: City, County, State Universities, Dept. of Fish & Wildlife, Railroad 

Non-Mandated Agencies:
Tribal Police, Gambling Commission, Liquor & Cannabis Board, WA State Parks & Recreation, Arson Investigators, DNR and Reserves. Please contact the BLEA Registrar for any questions regarding session costs.

Lodging Eligibility: Academy recruits whose "home agency" exceeds forty (40) miles, from the Criminal Justice Training Center are considered non-commuting attendees. These students are therefore eligible to receive lodging and meal services provided by the WSCJTC, as outlined in RCW 43.101.200 (2). Recruits who do not meet eligibility requirements for lodging may request to be placed on "non-mandated" status at the time of application. Meal cards can be purchases separately and will be direct-billed to the sponsoring agency.

Effective 05/01/2016, a new and simplified WSCJTC Statement of Fitness (Form CJ-1251) will be implemented for enrollment in all Basic Training Academies. We are also excited to announce the introduction of digital signatures (e-signatures). For those of you who are unfamiliar with this process, a “how-to guide” is linked below with step-by-step instructions on setting up your e-signature for the first time. Another big change to this form, is that we will no longer require the Statement of Fitness to be signed by a health care professional. There is now an “Agency Administrator” affidavit that must be signed by an agency representative in authority and an “Applicant” affidavit that must be signed by the recruit. These signatures will serve as notice to the WSCJTC that neither the agency, nor the applicant, are aware of any existing physical challenges that would prevent the successful completion of the Physical Ability Test (PAT) or Basic Training Academy.
