Unique Learning Opportunities

RCMP Youth Academy
April 15 - 23, 2019

The RCMP offers an amazing  policing academy for current grade 10, 11 and 12 students.

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.

Students participating in this 9-day program will stay (overnight) at the camp and will have "room & board" for its duration.  Activities will begin at 6.00am and run until 10.00pm each day.

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!

Note: an updated application will be available beginning November 1, 2018 (see link on right)... they are due by Friday, December 14, 2018

 

Coquitlam Fire/Rescue Junior Firefighter Program
March 15 - 22, 2019

The Coquitlam School District is very excited to partner with Coquitlam Fire/Rescue to offer its inaugural Firefighter Academy!
It is open to students currently in grades 11 and 12.

The Junior Firefighting Program will give the applicants a true understanding of the basic components both physical and educational of Coquitlam Fire/Rescue’s basic training for new recruits.  The educational component will test the applicant’s knowledge learned in the classroom of firefighting equipment, fire behaviour, the fire tetrahedron and the products of combustion, to name a few.  The practical component of the program will test the applicant’s strength, endurance and teamwork skills.  Some of these are: dragging charged hose lines, carrying ladders in a group, climbing the dreaded four-story hose tower and cutting up cars in teams using the “Jaws of Life”.

This 8-day firefighting program runs daily from 8.00am to 4.00pm (lunch and snacks provided, but students do not stay overnight).

There are three phases to being accepted: "completed application", "fitness test" and "personal interview". A student must successfully complete all if they are to be one of the 12 Coquitlam students to participate. It is a wonderful opportunity and experience!

Note: an updated application will be available beginning November 1, 2018 (link on right will be created soon)... they are due by Friday, December 14, 2018.
