Current and Former Approved Providers

Helping police forces confirm the validity of Certificates in Knowledge of Policing submitted by applicants to become police officers.

If an applicant submits a Certificate in Knowledge of Policing (CKP) issued by one of the learning providers listed below between the dates shown for that provider, you can be confident that the CKP was issued by an Approved Provider.

For more information about the Pre-Join Approved Provider Scheme and the CKP, see our Pre-Join to Policing programmes page.

If you are a potential student who wants to study for the CKP, we also maintain a list of all current Approved Providers, arranged by geographical region.
