Training at the Academy
If your application to join the WA Police Force is successful, you'll be offered a 13-week transitional training course at the WA Police Academy in Joondalup.
We train applicants to the highest level of excellence, with physically and academically enriching courses. You will join a squad with around 30 other successful applicants from varying backgrounds and policing jurisdictions to undertake training together.
While you may have a lot of policing knowledge, our transitional course will ensure you are across WA laws and policing policies.
We have a dedicated international recruiting team who can help you with everything from your application to welcoming you to Western Australia.
The WA Police Academy offers state-of-the-art facilities for you to complete your training and learn the skills of the job in a safe environment.
The A Police Academy is located 30km from Perth in the northern suburb of Joondalup. Parking is limited.
It is a 15-minute walk or a short bus ride from the Joondalup Train Station.
Training at the WA Police Academy runs across 13 weeks.
