  • This course is open to seniors only, OR to juniors who will turn 18 during the school year, OR to students who plan to graduate early and will turn 18 during the school year or within 3 months after graduating high school. The reason for the grade level and age requirements is that the curriculum changes every 3 years and it would not be beneficial to other grade levels to take this course until either their junior or senior year. You will need to be able to sit for the Florida DOH PST exam at the conclusion of the course.
  • There is a required 232 hours of class time.
  • We will meet this 232 hour requirement with course content, assessments, etc. in Canvas, field trips to our office location to complete 911 simulator training, virtual weekly check-ins/live lessons with the instructor and shadowing at a 911 communication center.

  • Students and parent/guardian must attend an orientation at the Pasco County Communications center with their instructor.
  • IF you are out of county, we will arrange for you to attend orientation virtually.

Criminal Justice Operations 3  (#8918030)

Internet cyber crime

This course focuses on different types of crimes that are committed. There is a heavy focus on forensics and will also take the student further into investigations.

During this course, students will compile a major case file and investigate an offender assigned to them.

Criminal Justice Operations 4-Track 2: Legal Assistant (#8918040)

This course focuses on many aspects of the law office and legal system.

Things you need to know about this course:

  • Students will gain hands on experience by constructing legal documents.
  • Student will complete an internship in a law office.

  • Students will be provided a student study guide to keep.
  • Students will receive information on how to obtain these books when they register for the course.

From the NALS website:

The ALP® is a four-hour, three-part exam, designed for students and entry-level professionals looking to get their foot in the door of the legal profession. It is often used as an exit exam for legal studies programs, and serves as a great way to compliment what has been learned in the classroom.  Attaining this goal demonstrates commitment and aptitude for succeeding in the ever-changing legal environment, and provides an opportunity to begin your career a rung above the competition.

  • When you click register on the Pasco eSchool website, you will be taken to a pre-registration form to move into the first step of the process of being registered for the course.
  • The pre-registration process will consist of a local law enforcement background check and verifying that students have the prerequisites of Criminal Justice Operations 1,  Criminal Justice Operations 2 and Criminal Justice Operations 3.
