Some Wake Tech Basic Law Enforcement Training Academy students are sponsored by North Carolina municipal, county or state agencies. Sponsorship does not obligate the sponsoring agency to hire cadets upon completion of training or to provide monetary assistance, nor does it obligate cadets to take a job with the sponsoring agency. Sponsorship is not required; cadets may enter and pay for the program on their own.

Cadets interested in being sponsored should contact law enforcement agencies and ask if they provide sponsorships for training. Agencies will conduct background checks, and if there are no problems, they will notify the cadet or the academy that they plan to provide sponsorship.
