2011/2012 e-Learning Course Selection Process Underway

As part of the Police Sector Council's national e-learning initiative, CPKN is requesting proposals from the Canadian policing sector that identify priority training issues for online delivery.

Each year, the Police Sector Council collaborates with CPKN to fund the development of four to five e-learning courses for the national police community. On release, each course is offered for free during an introductory Learning & Evaluation period. This not only provides police services with no-cost access to essential, high quality training but is also an important component of CPKN's research examining ways to improve and advance online learning for police.

Any policing organization or any agency affiliated with police training in Canada is eligible to submit a topic for consideration. This includes Police Services, Police Academies, Solicitor General Offices, and other agencies such as Canada Border Services Agency and Corrections Canada. Proposed course topics are reviewed and voted on by the community at large as part of CPKN's annual Stanhope Conference. Based on voting results, selected topics will be added to CPKN's 2011/2012 development schedule.

This national e-learning initiative is an important component of PSC's mandate to implement innovative, practical solutions to human resource planning and management challenges. To date, PSC has funded the development of eight courses; an additional seven courses will be released later this year.
