I hope this helps, and Good luck!
I greatly appreciate all the info, I know much less about how Florida works than I should so I appreciate it!

You have prior le so I would look and see if you could take the state exam and call the fdle to see if your certs can transfer to Florida and save a few thousand while your at it. Just a thought.
Oh that's not good! My first thought was for a transfer as well but unfortunately so much of my training is/was at the local level that it won't transfer.

Is the academy something that can be done while holding a full-time job? Or is it a full-day five day a week type of schedule?
