It is aligned with the RCMP cadet selection requirements and training standards in order to ensure students success. Throughout and once the students have completed the program, they will be encouraged to begin the process to become a police officer with the RCMP. The graduates from the program bring language and cultural skills that will continue to enhance the RCMP’s relationship with Canada’s Aboriginal communities.
