Effective June 12, 2014, applicants will no longer be able to register for the State Officer Certification Exam (SOCE) via this website as paper-and-pencil testing has been discontinued. Beginning July 2014, all State Officer Certification Exams will be administered on a computer based testing platform and applicants will register directly through Pearson VUE, the computer based testing vendor, or at private test centers that have been approved by FDLE for computer based testing. All applicants will be slated for computer based testing on July 14, 2014, and will be authorized to test by Pearson VUE on that date given the training or selection center has entered your passing result in the Automated Training Management System (ATMS). Therefore, beginning July 14, 2014, applicants may register for the computer-based State Officer Certification Examination online or by phone. To register online at a public test site, visit www.pearsonvue.com/fdle and follow the instructions on the site. To register by phone, please contact the Pearson VUE call center at 877-242-1697 and select option 6 to schedule an exam. If an applicant desires to take the test at a private test site, the applicant must contact the private test site directly to register. Until July 1, 2014, this website can still be used to access and print grade reports and notification letters for applicants that have previously taken a paper-and-pencil State Officer Certification Exam. If you have any questions, please contact the Research and Assessment Section at (850)410-8602.
