Putting their skills to the test


Mohawk hosts PARE competition for Justice Studies students

Mohawk College hosted a Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE) Competition at its Fennell Campus on November 13, 2018. PARE is an occupational test used to assess a person's ability to perform the physical demands of police work through simulating chasing, controlling, and apprehending a suspect. Mohawk was asked to host the competition by the RCMP. Mohawk students have traditionally performed very well in similar competitions such as the annual PREP (Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police) that is hosted at Sheridan College. The competition is also chance for recruiters to meet potential applicants and to show off Mohawk's training facilities.
