For anyone that applied and is going through the recruiting process, everything is on hold, as CVE is moved from Alberta Transportation to the Solicitor General and Public Security ministry.
(Fish & Wildlife's Enforcement Officers are moving over as well)

Thanks for updating. The HR email left a lot to the imagination.


Out of curiosity, is this move well received amongst officers? Will CVE change much under SolGen?

The answer to your first question will depend on the results of the second question.

For anyone that applied and successfully completed the written exam, the recruiting process is back on with interviews to be scheduled shortly.

(and our vehicle decals now say Solicitor General & Public Security)

Hello,

Since CVE has been moved to the Alberta Sol Gen, what difference is this going to be made with the job or training itself or application process.. :?:

Hiring process stays the same, Recruit Training will continue in Lethbridge from May to August using CVE instructors, and at least until after the provincial election it is business as usual.

So thats what happened...I had applied and was hoping to make the move over to CVEB. Then I got an email saying that the competition was on hold.

British Columbia CVSE used to be under that ministry, but we moved to the MOT a few years ago. In my opinion, CVE belongs under SolGen. Alberta CVEB being part of SolGen makes me want to go to Alberta even more!

The May - August course covers the basics, with the EVOC and CVSA courses provided at a later time.
