The Conservation program provides training to qualified forestry, wildlife, fishery or environmental technicians, or graduates of a recognized renewable resource program. Students will acquire the skills and knowledge for a career in conservation enforcement. They will be prepared for work in natural resource agencies, and in other related fields of enforcement and security throughout Canada.
The program will provide the cadet with firearms proficiency and tactical training, defensive driving and traffic control, use of force/control tactics training, communications and mental health training. In addition, subjects of law, legislation, sociology and psychology make up the academic components of the program.
Duration: 16 weeks
Begins in: August
All of the full time programs, offered at the Canadian Centre of Public Safety Excellence, require cadets stay in the residential dormitory provided during their training, excluding the on the job component of the program.
The residence provides experiential learning that would not be possible if students interacted with one another in an instructional setting alone. Residence life allows students to develop skills in teamwork, problem solving, time management and communications. It further enhances the development of gender and cross-cultural sensitivity, which are essential to a successful career in the public safety community.
