Police Preparation Diploma Program (PPD)
“Prior to being enrolled in the Police Preparation Diploma Program, I felt lost. I had no direction in my life and I didn’t know what I wanted to do. The IPPD program helped open my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities in the field of law enforcement. The program helped me write a proper resume, learn how to ace a job interview and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Above all, it gave me confidence. I am now working as a corrections officer for the Province of Manitoba, where I feel content and in control of my life. I don’t think I would be where I am today without taking the IPPD program.”
- Christine Deda, 2012 PPD graduate
