With instructors who bring real-world experience to the classroom, you are prepared to take your next steps in the field of law enforcement.


I took the Police Foundations course at the Kitchener Campus in 2012/13. Our instructor was a great source of real-world knowledge as he was retired from Law Enforcement. He didn’t sugarcoat any of it. You knew what was expected of you and you knew that by the end of the course you would be ready for the next step if you did your part and took the course seriously. The other school staff were great to work with and made the transition back to school seamless. They were always willing to help out in any way possible. They didn’t make us feel like just another number. I was fortunate to land a job with a fairly large security company right after school which kept me pointed in the right direction until being hired by Canada Border Services Agency in 2015. I did my testing and interviewing in Toronto late 2014, I attended CBSA College in Rigaud Quebec for 18 weeks beginning in February 2015 and then was posted to Centreville New Brunswick in June. I am positive that I would not have been hired without this training. There are a lot of Colleges that offer these courses, but I really liked the 1-year program. As a mature student, I would not have been able to afford to take multiple years off to get my diploma.
