The Edmonton Police Service Is Looking For You
The Edmonton Police Service is taking applications on an ongoing basis.
Edmonton Police Service Recruiting > Application Process > Important Dates > A-PREP Orientation
***All of our upcoming A-PREP practices and orientations have been cancelled to alleviate the spread of COVID-19 until further notice.***
Research shows that those who attend an orientation session have a better success rate than those who do not. It is highly encouraged that you attend one of these sessions as you will be exposed to the A-PREP protocol, you will learn how to effectively train for it, given technical advice on how to perform each of the tasks, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions and practice the physical tasks in the A-PREP. We have two different A-PREP session types:
The A-PREP Orientation
The orientation session is facilitated by a certified A-PREP Appraiser. Those who attend this orientation session with a valid medical clearance for A-PREP will also have the opportunity to run the Leger Shuttle run to Stage 7. Those who do not have an A-PREP medical clearance will only be allowed to run to Stage 3.5. The medical clearance forms will be emailed to you upon registration and are valid for 6 months. The opportunity to participate in the Leger Shuttle run is not mandatory
These practice sessions are facilitated by EPS recruiters. Those who attend this session will have the opportunity to try out the A-PREP equipment (Body Control Simulator and Arm Restraint Simulator) and have any questions answered by recruiters. It is suggested that applicants also attend an A-PREP orientation to maximize the effectiveness of this practice opportunity.
Time and Location:
Time: 6:30PM – 8:00PM
Location: William Griesbach Training Centre
If you need additional mentorship when it comes to improving your physical fitness, we encourage applicants to attend our Run with Recruiter Program.
