Accelerated training program

An accelerated training program (Lateral Cadet Training Program) is open to graduates of:

  • Police Science (Cadet) Program at the Atlantic Police Academy
  • Basic Training Program in Police Patrolling at L'École nationale de police du Québec

You must apply within one-year of graduation.

How to apply

You must meet the same qualifications and requirements, and complete the same application process as all other RCMP police officer applicants.


These two programs were selected based on their similarity with the RCMP Cadet Training Program.

If you are successful in the application process, you will complete an accelerated training program at the RCMP Academy (Depot) in Regina, Saskatchewan, as opposed to the regular 26 weeks. While at Depot, you will receive a cadet recruitment allowance of $525/week to help with your financial needs.

Contact your local recruiter for more information.
