O que eu aprenderei?

The Police Foundations program offers excellent pre-employment academic instruction for those individuals interested in a career in public law enforcement or security. Northern College has drafted an agreement with the University of Fredericton/Husson University to offer Northern College Police Foundations graduates the ability to enroll in a one year, online program which will grant Police Foundations graduates a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice.

Career Opportunities

This program is designed to assist students in preparing for the Constable Selection Process and the Police Qualifying Examination. If students successfully complete the Security Guard Training course as their 1st semester elective option, they will be eligible to write the Provincial Private Security Guard License Certification exam after their first year of the Police Foundations program.

The Police Foundations Program works closely with the Timmins Police Service and South Porcupine Ontario Provincial Police. This provides student access to hands on police training and education. In addition to participating in O.P.P. training scenarios, the Police Foundation Program offers on site scenario training which involves the use of college cruisers. This gives students a real life look into the policing world. Students receive a hands-on approach in relation to education and training. Instructors and guest speakers include retired and serving members of the Policing Community ensuring a police focused education.
