Millbrook FN: Aboriginal Pre-Cadet – Training Program
The Aboriginal Pre-Cadet Training Program (APTP) offers Canadian Aboriginal people from the ages of 19-29, the opportunity to get an insidelook at the life of a police officer. This summer program provides the selected candidates with hands-on experience in the RCMP’s training program and ample opportunity to do meaningful work in their community while working with police members of the RCMP.
Those accepted into the program attend a three-week training program at the RCMP Training Academy (Depot) in Regina, beginning in July.The training focuses on teaching collaborative problem-solving skills, law enforcement, public speaking, cultural diversity, and facilitating Safe Community Workshops in communities. There are also elements of physical fitness and drill which promote teamwork and provide students with long-term strategies to meet personal fitness goals.
After successful completion of the APTP course, students are posted to an RCMP detachment near their home community where they will work with seasoned police officers for 4 weeks. Activities and duties may vary depending on the need of each region but the students will get a first-hand look at a career in the RCMP.
