CPKN A BIG HIT AT THE 2005 CAPE CONFERENCE

The Canadian Association of Police Educators (CAPE) held their annual conference this past week in Slemon Park, PEI. This year's theme, "Bridging the Gap" focused on the future of police education, specifically how e-learning would play a role.

With many of Canada's leading police educators and trainers in attendance, CAPE 2005 proved to be an excellent venue for CPKN to discuss police training needs, issues and future opportunities in the field of training. The general consensus is that e-learning will inevitably become an important component of police education and training in the very near future.

CPKN officials were busy during the week speaking with many CAPE delegates who were enthusiastic about e-learning and specifically working with an organization that had the technical expertise and resources as CPKN. Directors Sandy Sweet and John Arnold addressed the participants on Thursday morning and hosted tours of the course production facility in Charlottetown throughout the week.

As a result of the conference, further momentum for CPKN was generated and there is potential for new course development with some of the organizations that CPKN has engaged.
