Boasting a diverse culture and heritage, the Crowsnest Pass maintains the small town feel with a variety of shopping, dining, and services for residents.

Good day,

Do you recruit CPO's without the Alberta CPO training? I tried to register for the training but they won't let me unless I'm hired by a county. I want to obtain a CPO position in Alberta.

Thank you very much!
