Yea, from what I heard RCMP is super competitive. That is why I am applying for other policing jobs as well. I know that MP is not the best for policing but I still want to try it. The reason why I want MP instead of MPO, is that I heard MPO is mainly a administrative role and desk job. You rarely get any good experience from it, so I want to be an MP instead. I also heard that in terms of degree for RCMP, they do not care what degree it is. It is about the skills you acquire from the degree that matters.The difference the MP/MPO trade has specific education requirements.
We don’t have that. We are competitive in a different way. One of the best ways to show the things needed is to chase education. It’s also not the only way.
All education is good. I encourage all my people to be chasing education constantly. I’m big on it.
I just also know the weight of the degree is often not what people think it is.
