SPINDALE (Sept. 29, 2020) – Two students recently graduated from the Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) program at Isothermal Community College after completing nearly ten months of training. 

The BLET program is the state-mandated course of study for anyone interested in becoming a certified law enforcement officer. The three students who completed the program were trained in 35 topics including criminal law, arrest, search, and seizure, driver training, defense tactics, firearms, and other related law enforcement topics. 

The students who earned a graduation certificate for the 673-hour training program are Charles S. Dobbins and Catherine J. Dubois. 

The students were honored in a small ceremony featuring instructors Philip Bailey and Thomas Tarker. 

This is the 79th BLET class to graduate from Isothermal Community College since it began conducting the training in the late 1970’s. 

The next BLET class begins in early 2021. For information, contact Brenda McFarland at 828-395-1668 or Bailey at 828-395-1644.
