The Canadian Centre of Public Safety Excellence is a partnership between Holland College’s Atlantic Police Academy and Slemon Park Corporation.

A one of a kind training centre, the CCPSE combines skill-based competencies, academically sound curriculum and state-of-the-art physical infrastructure.

All of the programs and training courses are delivered by experienced staff who have worked closely with a variety of public safety agencies to develop, design and deliver the most up to date training to meet or exceed industry standards.

In addition to offering recruit training for police, fire, corrections, sheriffs and conservation officers, the centre, with its training experience, has amassed an impressive range of specialized in-service training. Learn public safety training and police training with our many programs and shorter in-services.

In partnership with Holland College, the centre offers articulation agreements and credit transfers, allowing graduates from the Atlantic Police Academy to use their certificates towards a bachelor’s degree at the University of Prince Edward Island or Cape Breton University.
