For the purposes of this section, Eastfield College Criminal Justice Training Center will construe, in accordance with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Education, any court-ordered community supervision, probation or conviction for a criminal offense to be its closest equivalent under the Texas Penal Code classification of offenses if the offense arose from another penal provision of Texas law, or a penal provision of any other state, federal, military or foreign jurisdiction. A classification of an offense as a felony at the time of conviction will never be changed because Texas law has changed or because the offense would not be a felony under current Texas law.
Eastfield College Criminal Justice Training Center programs are designed in compliance with (TCOLE) Commission standards to permit the student the best opportunity for enrollment, certification and licensing.
