Law Enforcement

The 10-month Law Enforcement Certificate is a specialized program designed to assist students in developing the academic and interpersonal skills required for the application process in a number of careers in the Justice area. We promote positive communication, integrity and teamwork. The popular physical component of the course will help future officers keep fit so they will be better prepared to handle the physical and mental stress associated with their jobs.  Our program will not only help you meet the industry standards but will help you to reach your personal potential with healthy lifestyle changes.
UCN can provide a strong foundation for students to apply for rewarding careers in the RCMP, City Police Forces, First Nations Policing, correctional institutions, security positions, restorative justice programs, and sheriff’s department.
UCN faculty includes a team of instructors with career experience in RCMP and Corrections, who have credentials in Adult Education, and are committed to student success.
