We are launching a pilot recruit course in May 2023, trialling a revised training model.

The model will run for 28 weeks. It will include 18 weeks of academy-based training and 10 weeks of in-field training at police stations across Tasmania, supported by a brand-new mentorship program.

The pilot course will see 20 recruits train under the alternative structure. Importantly, they will still receive the same high standard of education and training as our general recruit courses.

This trial is an exciting opportunity for Tasmania Police, and once completed a thorough review will be conducted to help inform our future training programs.
