An Agreement Between ENPQ and CPKN Increases the Availability of Online Training
Nicolet, December 3, 2020 – The École nationale de police du Québec (ENPQ) and the Canadian Police Knowledge Network (CPKN) are proud to announce the signing of a new agreement that will make the CPKN’s catalogue of online training activities available to the Québec police and public security professionals through the ENPQ’s Moodle learning platform. ENPQ will coordinate the access to these training courses and ensure that priority is given to making available courses on current topics adapted to the Québec reality.
In the current context and with the advancement of recent technologies, providing diversified online training courses that complement the existing training courses at ENPQ is essential. CPKN gathers the work of a group of developers in the public security sector across the country. ENPQ is proud to combine its knowledge of the Québec context and training needs with a training catalogue from sources that go beyond Québec’s borders.
Through the well-established relationship between ENPQ and police and public security organizations, this agreement gives CPKN the opportunity to expand the delivery of its training courses throughout Québec.
“For Québec police and public security professionals, this new agreement means privileged access to a large number of training courses relevant to their professional development”, says Pierre St-Antoine, Director General of ENPQ. At the same time, ENPQ solidifies its position as a reference in public security training in Québec and continues to work with its partners outside Québec to provide a comprehensive and accessible training continuum for the entire sector.”
“CPKN and ENPQ have collaborated for many years on projects of common interest that drive excellence in policing professional development. We are looking forward to working even more closely together”, says Sandy Sweet, President of CPKN. “ENPQ is an incredible institution demonstrating leadership in research driven professional development. This partnership takes the CPKN/ENPQ relationship to a new level and will benefit police in Québec and across Canada.”
ENPQ will send to its partners a specific communication when the new courses are launched. The first training courses will be available during the winter of 2021.
