While Oulton College lays the foundation for individuals aspiring to become RCMP officers, it is not a guarantee of acceptance into the RCMP without the completion of the necessary application process. However, this allows you the opportunity to work within the field and gain valuable experience while completing the RCMP application. The RCMP is a federal police force that has jurisdiction across Canada and is unique in that it’s one of only two police forces in Canada (the other being Ontario Provincial Police) with national jurisdiction. This means that once you have completed your training at Oulton College, you will have to apply to be able to enforce laws and regulations throughout all provinces and territories within Canada.
The Policing and Corrections Foundation Program provides hands-on practical experience and training that will help you develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence necessary for success in this field. You will be exposed to techniques and special equipment used by law enforcement professionals and correctional officers.
The program is a comprehensive curriculum that covers some of the following topics and more:
