Law Enforcement Foundations

Diploma 49 weeks

Working in public safety is one of the most satisfying and rewarding occupations in Canada, and law enforcement officers are among the best-trained members of any profession in modern society.

If you are looking to get law enforcement training with an emphasis on practical, hands-on learning, the Law Enforcement Foundations diploma program is an excellent fit for you.

Law Enforcement Professionals

Law enforcement professionals are highly trained in human behaviour, advanced conflict resolution, investigation techniques, and de-escalating tense situations.

In the Law Enforcement Foundations program, you’ll get focused, relevant training in criminology, law and the legal system, the criminal code and federal statutes, regulatory enforcement, police authority, correctional services, security work, and private investigation.

You’ll also learn about the importance of ethics and professional communication while receiving a background in the fundamentals of human behaviour and psychology.

Hands-on Law Enforcement Training

A major component of the Law Enforcement Foundations program is meeting with our career services department before you graduate.

CDI College’s Employment Specialists will assist you in creating a strong portfolio, so you can market yourself effectively to employers.

This includes resume and cover letter workshops, career advice and counselling, and helping you search for work for up to six months after you graduate.

This program has been approved by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training.


Please note,  Federal and Provincial Agencies in British Columbia, and the rest of Canada, have special requirements for those entering a career as a law enforcement or regulatory enforcement officer. Students wishing to pursue such careers should ensure that they would be able to meet the physical and educational requirements before enrolling. Those who fail to hold a valid Grade 12 or GED may be limited in finding employment in certain areas.
