Certificate in Knowledge of Policing (CKP)
About the CKP
The Certificate in Knowledge of Policing (CKP) is a national qualification introduced by the College of Policing.
It is now a requirement by many forces, including South Wales Police, that applicants have achieved a CKP within the last three years prior to application.
As well as being a qualification in its own right, the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing also provides credits towards the Diploma in Policing qualification which will be achieved during an officer’s probationary period. The Diploma is a requirement for all new police constables, and is the national minimum professional qualification. In addition, it gives candidates an official qualification and allows future police officers to take responsibility for their learning.
