Lethbridge College To Offer Indigenous Policing Microcredentials – Lethbridge College
Lethbridge College will soon be offering an Indigenous Policing (Niitsitapi Inakiikawaiks) microcredential program.
The suite of microcredentials – short-term, flexible learning programs designed for re-skilling or upskilling – will provide culturally appropriate education to Indigenous police services as they work to address the needs of their communities. Courses will be delivered online for asynchronous self-paced learning and will be available to current officers, cadets and – where appropriate – Lethbridge College School of Justice students.
“Current cadet training in Western Canada is not specific to Indigenous policing,” says Trudi Mason, Dean of the Centre for Justice and Human Services. “These microcredentials will focus on restorative justice and community-based policing and will begin to bridge the gap identified by our industry partners.”
