I am interested in applying to join the Police, will this qualification help me?
Absolutely! Like any employment, if you have a qualification relevant to that position, the more suitable your application presents, helping you to be more competitive.
By completing this course, this proves you have an interest in the justice system and the ability to study crime, justice and legal related content at the level required to be a police recruit. This then has the potential for you to rank higher in the merit based process.
In addition, this arms you with the knowledge and skills to present with more confidence during a police interview and psychometric testing, which is elevated by our comprehensive Employment Preparation area made available to you when you complete your course with us.
This study is designed to help you prepare to be the best applicant you can be, and is not designed just to satisfy police entry requirements, which historically do not encourage people to prepare to the level they need to be successful and only advertise the minimum requirements. So, many trusting people fail the selection process and are confused on why this occurred. But in reality there were just better qualified and prepared applicants.
On completion of the Certificate IV in Crime and Justice Studies you may continue and study further units and receive the Diploma of Crime and Justice Studies. Elevating the strength of your application even further.
