Just got a message that I was deferred till next year march. Sounds very devastating. Any ideas on what to do next guys?
Ya, improve your resume and reapply if this is actually what you want to do.

You may have better fortunes next time, or you may get deferred again.

What stage did you make it to?
Thanks. I made a call to the recruitment thing and was told the reason why. Apparently its normal. My resume was very good but i am quite new in town and my fitness level wasnt close to how it should be. Given a deferral to improve on it. Stage 3

Yeah a year deferral is somewhat normal. EPS is known for lifetime deferrals, so I wouldn't take it as a "choose a different career" type thing. They just want you to grow from something they took issue to and prove your commitment.
You are very correct. Fitness needs improvement as well as am new in canada and so need to have another year work experience in country

Download 5k Runner APP and pay for it. When I first started, I got to Stage 4 - but it was a practice PREP Session. It took me a month of proper dieting and conditioning to pass Stage 7. I was in good shape, just had unnecessary body fat. Now I'm working towards Stage 9. You need to start SLOWLY. You are activating your cardiovascular system. You need to lose weight in order to run further and faster. Your body is going to tell you to stop. You need to push until f**king boogers are dripping out of your nose. Treadmills are great to get your heart rate up and adapt to prolonged activity. It also contributes significantly in lowering your body fat but you need to combine it with outdoor running. Do lower body workouts as well twice a week. Stop eating crap - now.

Whether you are successful or not in the process. You are so much healthier which is priceless. Good luck.

Hi all,

I’m currently a UK citizen that is looking to relocate to Canada in the next year and a half through Permanent Resident status. I’ve been thinking of changing career and wish to apply for the Edmonton Police Service.

I’m aware I will not be able to apply until I land in Canada and have swapped my UK documents for Alberta ones. However, I just wanted to gauge what impact having no Canadian experience prior to applying is likely to have - will deferral be most likely given?

I have a legal background having studied law in the United Kingdom, but I went in to a finance role after University. Is having prior knowledge of an alternative legal system likely to impact or be perceived as different as recruiting may prefer applicants to have a ‘blank canvas’?

Thanks for any help.

Edmonton Police values all experiences and hires all types from all different kinds of backgrounds. You need the minimum requirements to apply, but once you're being interviewed and assessed, it's up to you to show how you can make your experiences and knowledge relevant.

Poor attempt. No one cares if you take up space on a forum. But I guess now you can say you did your part for Justice?

Just in case anyone thinks this forum member caught oldtimers from me, he is referring to a NOW-BLOCKED-AND-FORMER forum member, who shall be nameless, and NEVER quoted or referred to EVER again, that unleashed within me a fury that nearly frightened even me! Anyways, kudos all for enduring until I finally got back here!! Pete Broccolo, Mad-Mod

Same question regarding the hearing test.

Moderator Pete Broccolo just realized that he missed nuking a comment on this post by an idiot, so he did that, then noticed that I had quoted the idiot's comment, so, being the demure, gentle-as-a-drunken-mountain-lion kinda ruggedly-handsome dude he truly is, he deleted ANY reference to said idiot in this post of mine so that my post-count would still be right up there.

This post was in regards to JusticeGeorge aka Justice George who apparently was butt-hurt by Edmonton PS, either as an applicant, or works for the City of Edmonton, or Province of Alberta in Edmonton, or the Government of Canada in Edmonton, or another Municipal Government in Alberta, or the Alberta or Federal Governments somewhere in Alberta.

Unfortunately, the forum does NOT allow us to do as much as JG apparently can do from their government VPN that they CLAIM to be using, but who knows?!

Anyways, if JG returns, with their acidic and poisonous commentary, please "report" its posts WITHOUT quoting their filth, thanks

Don’t give up and keep improving your resume, if you’re from Alberta try to do run with recruiters as much as possible (once covid lets you) I was given one this past fall right before beginning the background stage, talked to recruitment who was more helpful than I could have ever imagined and I plan to apply back in a year or so.

Hi everyone, I'm currently working through the process of applying with EPS, and my next step is the BDI. I've talked to lots of people that have gone through it and prepared my examples, but am having a lot of trouble getting to that 7-9 minute baseline that is recommended. Whenever I practice and walk through the example, I always come up short. Does anyone have tips in relation to this and the BDI in general? Thanks!

Edit: Passed!
