Admission Requirements
Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD)
Grade 12 English (C, U)

Or equivalent

Or mature student status (an applicant who does not have a high school diploma or equivalent, and will have reached the age of 19 years on or before the start of the program). Mature students must undergo academic testing prior to admission into a program. Call the Admissions Office at 705-235-7222 for more details.

Academic prerequisites for this program may be obtained free of charge through Academic Upgrading.

Additional Admission Requirements
Northern College not only provides students with the foundation, but also uses many of the constable selection testing instruments to counsel successful applicants for the program. These include: PATI – Police Analytical Thinking Inventory; WCT – Written Communications Testing; B-PAD – Video Behavioral Testing. Resume building and exercises to assist students through police applicant interviews are part of the program.

Upon completion of this program, individuals seeking such a career and who successfully meet the requirements for police constable upon hire, are required to go through a mandatory provincial system of police training to become police officers in the Province of Ontario.

All students including those studying at a distance through Contact North/Contact Nord (online) will be required to take and pass a physical testing at one of the College’s campuses (Kirkland Lake or Timmins) as determined by the College. All costs for travel and accommodation will be incurred by the student. There is no charge for fitness testing as it is an introduction to the fitness equipment and fitness graduation requirements. Note that applicants’ results will not affect their offer of admission to the program. Note: Academic prerequisites for this program may be obtained free of charge through Academic Upgrading.

Requirements for the Constable Selection Process
The requirements for the Police Constable Selection process are not requirements for admission into Northern College’s Police Foundations program. Rather, the following are requirements for employment as a police constable in Ontario. An applicant must:

  • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada
  • Hold a valid Driver’s License; possess CPR to Basic Rescuer standard
  • Possess a First Aid (standard) Certificate

As part of their pre-interview assessment phase of the recruitment of police constables in Ontario, the Police Services use the following five criteria: Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police (PREP) which measures the physical fitness of an applicant through vocation-specific exercises; vision and hearing tests; Written Communications Test (WCT); Criminal Record Check and Pardon Process.

Students who do not comply with the immunization requirements may not be allowed into the practice settings and as such may not be able to complete the Practical sessions.

CPR re-certification, police record search, and immunization updates are required annually and are to be completed prior to the fall semester.

To be eligible for participation in practicum experience, students must not have been convicted of any criminal offence for which that person has not been pardoned. An unpardoned criminal record may result in inability to participate in clinical practice courses and could prevent the student from graduating.

Any costs for these tests/certifications will be the responsibility of the applicant. Students are responsible for the cost of appropriate uniforms and shoes.

Semster 2

PF2073 Behaviour and Drugs
The Behaviour and Drugs course is designed to provide the student with a basic understanding of pharmacokinetics (the movement of drugs through the body, including administration, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion) and pharmacodynamics (the mechanism of action of drugs). In this course, we will be examining how different drugs affect the body and mind. We will also look at issues such as tolerance, dependence, and the therapeutic use of commonly abused drugs in society and examine the behaviours that accompany them. The following legal and restricted classes of drugs will be covered in the course: stimulants, narcotics, sedatives, hallucinogens and psychotherapeutics, such as antidepressants. The course should leave the learner with knowledge of basic pharmacology, neurology and psychotherapy and how some specific drugs, such as nicotine, work in the body to produce their effects. Students will gain an understanding of the issues surrounding the use of drugs and the different behaviours displayed with illicit drugs use. Real case studies will be used throughout the course to deepen the topics at hand, such as the experience of an ex-narcotic abuser. Guest speakers may also be available to enhance specific areas of interest in this course, such as the methadone maintenance treatment.
The learner will finish this course with a well-rounded introduction to the many aspects of drug use, including how different classes of drugs work in the body and will begin to understand the factors that may affect drug use behaviour. Finally, the student will be able to apply the knowledge learnt from the course in a major assignment for prevention and treatment of drug abuse in our youth.

PF4006 Community Placement
The community placement is designed to be a cooperative endeavor between the College’s Police Foundations program and various community agencies, service organizations and social service providers. The objective is to provide Police Foundations students with an opportunity to engage with both the service providers and service recipients in an effort to better understand the impact of socio-economic trends, personal and family dynamics on various individuals in our community. Students will engage in direct service provision in the form of volunteering. Students will work to solidify and practice a variety of critical skills to engage in professional relationship building, self-evaluation, self-care, and professional development. Students will take part in four Seminar days occurring approximately one day per month throughout the course. The content of the seminar will include presentations of volunteer experiences done in the context of skills applications and professional practices. The goal of both the seminars and the volunteer experience is to assist the Police Foundations student in acquiring greater self-awareness, intellectual growth, well-being, and understanding of others.

PF4073 Professional Issues, Research & Ethics
Internet access by mass media to down loads from cell phones within hours of an event has led to high levels of scrutiny by the public and governments of police officers. Ethical behavior and the fallout from inappropriate conduct are some of the most critical issues facing organizations today. This course explores ethical issues, controversies, and professional scenarios faced by police officers as individuals and professionals. Students are provided with opportunities to identify and clarify their values to then establish a framework for ethical decision making. They will research and examine a variety of professional ethical codes to then apply ethical decision making models to dilemmas in their personal and professional lives. Scenario-based training exercises centered on ethics are presented throughout the course, to reinforce equitable, effective, and ethical behavior among the students. As a result, students will hone their ability to think critically and carefully about their actions, their decisions, and their values.

Students will be introduced to guidelines for multicultural practices and ethical and professional issues as well as group leadership roles and responsibilities. This course seeks to combine both didactic and experiential learning experiences. “There is a pressing and moral need to redress the health, economic, and social inequities experienced by the First Nations, Inuit and Métis people of Canada. Education is integral to the future of Canada’s Aboriginal people.” (Cultural Competency in First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nursing Education 2009).

Semester 4
AA2041 Community Service Learning
Volunteer hours in the Community Services programs are designed to help students develop a sense of community identity. As professionals in training, it is vitally important that students have an awareness of community strengths and needs. These volunteer hours will provide students with the opportunity to positively engage with community while having fun.

CM2013 Communications and Report Writing for Police
The course is designed to assist potential law enforcement officers to develop effective writing and speaking skills toward the preparation of a policing career. Communications II is the second course in the Communication course series. It continues to provide a practical, police approach to the fundamental writing and speaking conventions which must be understood in order to communicate effectively in investigation teams and prosecution work.

DA1023 Concurrent Disorders
Concurrent mental health and substance use disorders likely have always coexisted for many people, however, the combination of the two have only been gaining more attention in the last number of years. There is an increasing recognition that in many people’s lives the two cannot be separated. Historically, a person living with a concurrent disorder who would look for help to deal with either disorder would be shifted from one treatment setting to another. If someone with depression presented at a community addiction treatment agency looking for help with alcoholism he or she would have been asked to see mental health counsellors at the community mental health agency. Once there the client would be asked to get help for the alcohol problem before coming back to the mental health agency. In the end, the person is left feeling undervalued and hopeless. More recently, there is recognition of the need for integrated treatment. When someone with a concurrent disorder presents for help, agency personnel must be prepared to work with that person, or at least be able to access the appropriate care for that person. This course will provide the students with information about concurrent disorders in relation to recognition and treatment. Students will gain skill in relation to asking the right questions in order to screen and conduct basic assessments for concurrent disorders. They will be able to continue working with that person while directing them to appropriate services. It’s important to have information about services available for those living with a concurrent disorder. One of the biggest barriers to accessing treatment for someone living with a concurrent disorder is the stigma associated with the disorders. We will examine this stigma and look at the ways that it turns into discrimination. We will also have the opportunity to self-examine, to allow students become aware of the stigma they carry and how they can continue to assist people in a positive and helpful way.

PF2004 Criminal Civil Law and Federal Statutes
This course will provide students with information that relates to the Controlled Drug and Substances Act, Youth Criminal Justice Act, Interpretation Act, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, as well as other Federal legislation.

PF2023 Police Powers II
This course is a continuance of Police Powers I and will focus on police governance and accountability issues related to the Police Services Act, police complaints, First Nations policy and management and labour issues. Use of force theory, law and other legal issues related to the use of force will be discussed. Theory related to officer safety will be examined.

PF2032 Career Employment Preparation
This course will prepare students for the job search including preparing for interviews, as well as preparing for the testing process involved in police officer recruitment.

PF2093 Fitness and Lifestyle Management II
The purpose of this course is two fold: To ensure that the student has been given every opportunity to reach the level of physical fitness readiness necessary for entry into the police services field by providing an introduction to/an explanation of/and be allowed time to practice for the PREP (Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police) as per standards set by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police; 2) To increase awareness of physical fitness as a component of wellness. For this reason, the course will also cover topics such as weight control, stress and stress management, heart disease, cancer, exercise injuries, etc. To be fit without being healthy and well is not to have finished the journey toward a full life.

In addition, the psychological/social impact of crime and violence will also be addressed.

PF4011 Physical Standards Training and Testing
The purpose of this course is three fold:
To ensure that the student has been given every opportunity to reach the level of physical fitness necessary for entry into the police services field.
To prepare and test the candidate to pass the required PREP (Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police) as per standards set by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police.
To be fit without being healthy and well is not to have finished the journey toward a full life.

SW2023 Conflict Resolution/Mediation
This course is designed to help students look at conflict in a theoretical and critical manner and then to recognize and apply systemic methods of resolving disputes ranging from interpersonal conflict to analyzing more complex global issues. Students will learn to identify, avoid, and resolve their own personal conflicts as well as assisting others as a neutral third party and to do so in an efficient and effective manner.

SW2033 Crisis Intervention
This course is designed to provide students with fundamental crisis theory that will serve as a basis for assessment, intervention and evaluating resolution of a crisis event. A six-step model of intervention is presented along with specific helping objectives in order to guide the student in the practice of crisis intervention. Recognizing that suicide risk often accompanies a crisis, students will learn to recognize suicide lethality, and acquire specific techniques involved in interrupting a suicide attempt. Ultimately, the intention of this course is to prepare the student to help turn the clients’ crisis (danger) into an opportunity for personal growth and development.
