RCMP YOUTH ACADEMY : March 28 - April 5, 2018

The RCMP offers an amazing 9-day  "Youth Academy" for grade 11 and 12 students each year.
It is traditionally around the Easter long weekend, but completed applications are due in the first week of December.

This program is designed to place the students in a simulated RCMP training environment (a mini version of depot in Regina). Students will receive instruction and lectures: law, social & communication skills, physical training, police tactics & self-defense, and a variety of other topics. This classroom learning will be put into practice with a great deal of role-playing scenarios where they will take full responsibility and reality of an RCMP constable. They will be required to work both individually and in teams, and participate in all planned activities.

There are three phases to being accepted: "completed application" (see RCMP application link on the right), "fitness test" and "personal interview". A student must successfully complete all if they are to be one of the 10 Coquitlam students to participate. It is a wonderful opportunity and experience!
