Notice to Students Regarding Licensing

Effective September 1st 2017, HB 1508 amends the Texas Occupations Code Section 53 that requires education providers to notify you a potential or enrolled student that a criminal history may make you ineligible for an occupational license upon program completion.

 

The following website provides links to information about the licensing process and requirements. http://www.navarrocollege.edu/conted/police-academy/admission/ or go to
