FBAT: Florida Basic Abilities Test

F-bat logo

With over 3 decades of testing experience, Miami-Dade College has created the Florida Basic Abilities Test (FBAT) to fulfill the request of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's needs for testing candidates for law enforcement and corrections. This test was developed to measure basic abilities at the minimum level required upon entry into basic recruit training programs. The FBAT Team is a group of highly trained professionals who are prepared to service your need for high-quality, accurate and secure testing.


Our top priority is to serve the Florida Public Safety Community by providing fair, reliable, and valid tests that predict trainee success in Florida Training Centers. FBAT tests are developed using the latest industry standards and technology. Our rigorous development process, combined with our intimate knowledge of the Florida Public Safety arena, establishes the FBAT on the forefront of the testing industry.
