Educational exemptions for police officer positions are considered on a case-by-case basis.
If you can demonstrate that your training could be transferable to a college or university in British Columbia for academic credits, then we may consider your request. For example, some courses in the building trades might be transferable towards a university level engineering program. We will consider the completion of a Red Seal certification in a trade coupled with work experience.
In the past, we have granted exemptions for areas like military courses and paramedic training. However, these candidates also possessed several other desirable traits and life experience.
If you are still working towards obtaining your 30 credits, consider applying to be a Special Municipal Constable. You will gain relevant work experience and have a flexible schedule where you can continue your post-secondary studies.
If you wish to request an educational exemption, please submit a complete application package to the Recruiting Unit so a complete assessment can be made.
