For as long as I can remember my dream was to become a Police Officer- but I always knew it was going to take a lot of hard work and a competitive education. After receiving a college diploma in Police Foundations I began looking into programs and courses that I could complete while still maintaining full-time employment. I researched a variety of study options from several colleges and found the programs at Humber College to be the most affordable, accessible and, above all, relevant to the field I was pursuing. I began by completing an Investigators Certificate and then continued on to a study of Human Behaviour Certificate. I am now on my way to completing an Ontario Graduate Certificate in Forensic Practise. Each course I have completed has helped me to develop practical new skills, overcome unique challenges, and even gain new friendships all while maintaining my regular employment.In 2011 my dream finally came true and I was hired by Peel Regional Police as a Police Constable. I owe a large part of my success to Humber’s Continuing Education programs, which have allowed me to pursue continuous learning while still earning a living and gaining valuable work experience. To everyone thinking of registering or currently enrolled in a Humber program, I wish you all the same successes in attaining your dreams.
