Course Description

Teacher in Charge: K. Wiltshire


The Police Pathway Programme aims to provide students with a foundation understanding of the knowledge, skills, attributes and attitudes associated with the Police and Policing in Aotearoa. The course provides students with an opportunity to explore the physical and leadership requirements required to become a Police Officer.

The programme is supported by NZ Police. Students completing this course will receive an NZ Police certificate of achievement. For students interested in joining the RNZPC this course incorporates the content of the 12 week distance learning course which is a requirement of the application process. Applicants would still need to meet the other entry requirements.

Students have three theory lessons and one practical fitness lesson each week.

This course has limited numbers. Students selecting PWSP 301 will need to demonstrate a commitment to the programme including the physical fitness component.
