Students must also be willing to work in diverse communities and have good health and fitness.

Job opportunities are very good and continue to grow with security related positions increasing in the gaming industry and in the corporate and retail sector. Entry level positions are also available in corrections, customs operations, private investigation, bylaw enforcement and the armed forces.

HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Students will be required to complete 2 physical fitness courses (PFP108-Lifestyle & Management I and PFP208 - Lifestyle & Management II) which require the applicant to assess their ability to participate.
