Support for students after completing the IPROWD course

IPROWD provides post course support for all IPROWD students for up to 12 months after course graduation to provide assistance to complete CSU and NSW Police Force applications, complete medicals and attend the fitness and psychometric tests. 

IPROWD students are also supported to look for other employment while they wait to finalise the Police recruitment process, or to support students who are seeking employment in other areas.
