Helping Canadians get back to work.


Working in public safety is one of the most satisfying and rewarding occupations in Canada, and law enforcement officers are among the best-trained members of any profession in modern society.

If you are looking to get law enforcement training with an emphasis on practical, hands-on learning, the Law Enforcement Foundations diploma program is an excellent fit for you.

Law Enforcement Professionals

Law enforcement professionals are highly trained in human behaviour, advanced conflict resolution, investigation techniques, and de-escalating tense situations.

In the Law Enforcement Foundations program, you’ll get focused, relevant training in criminology, law and the legal system, the criminal code and federal statutes, regulatory enforcement, police authority, correctional services, security work, and private investigation.

You’ll also learn about the importance of ethics and professional communication, while receiving a background in the fundamentals of human behaviour and psychology.

Hands-on Law Enforcement Training

A major part of the Law Enforcement Foundations program is prior to graduation, when you’ll meet with our career services department.
