    In the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Cadets are what we call our successful applicants that are accepted to our Academy to participate in our 26 week Basic Training Program to become Police Officers.

    Those that successfully complete our BCTP *and* accept their first posting then are sworn in as members of the RCMP, as Peace Officers, and to maintain secrecy, then are employed as Police Officers. They still have to successfully complete their Field Training (usually 6 months) and probation (2 years).

    Cadets that do NOT successfully complete BCTP are dismissed without any acknowledgement.

    Cadets that DO complete our BCTP successfully but DO NOT accept their first posting DO receive a Certificate Of Training, but no offer of employment. Usually, those graduates apply to, and are immediately accepted and employed by, a Aboriginal / First Nations / Indigenous, or Provincial (RNC in Newfoundland Labrador, OPP in Ontario, or SQ in Quebec) or Municipal (stand-alone or Regional) PS.

    I also suggest that anyone asking such a question here, without specifying the Agency and apparently not having researched the job parameters with the Agency itself, needs to look at another vocation than Policing or other Law Enforcement.

      As suggested, the application process and job vary from agency to agency. In my area, many state police cadets are assigned to assist troopers in commercial vehicle inspection. There are also other assignments, but truck inspection seems an emphasis. In the county police, the cadet program is designed to encourage minorities to successfully apply for and become officers. This is primarily administrative work in stations and headquarters. In other places such as the RCMP, cadet means what we would call a recruit or officer candidate.
