Graduates from the following OPC-approved programs are eligible to write the exemption exam:

  • Atlantic Police Academy
  • British Columbia Justice Institute
  • Calgary Police Service
  • Ecole Nationale de Police du Quebec
  • Edmonton Police Service
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police Depot

All other experienced police officers must complete the OPC recruit program.
