E-learning Solution to Address the Learning and Development Needs of Fishery Officers

Fisheries and Oceans Canada | Published October 18, 2017
cpvs

1.0 Scope

1. 1 Title

E-learning Solution to Address the Learning and Development Needs of Fishery Officers

1.2 Introduction

Conservation and Protection (DFO) is seeking the services of an online training solution provider for police and law enforcement personnel, who can offer law enforcement related e-learning courses in both official languages, and which are developed and approved by subject experts from the Canadian police community (eg. RCMP, Police colleges, Provincial Police Services, etc.) The service provider would also be required to provide 650 DFO users with access to a Learning Management System through a portal customized for DFO. DFO will be able to use this portal to access the contractor`s courseware as well as other courses licensed by or produced by DFO. The system will also have the capacity to track the users’ trainings.

1.3 Objectives of the Requirement

Provide fishery officers with quality online training in both official languages that is consistent across the country and to keep track of their training history.

1.4 Background, Assumptions and Specific Scope of the Requirement

The Conservation and Protection`s (C&P) staff currently includes approximately 600 fishery officers who are deployed all across the country. Fishery officers are trained to carry out a wide range of duties, on land and at sea, and are the government`s first line of support in promoting compliance with legislation and regulations through various mediums from education to deterrents such as fines to ensure the sustainability of Canada’s aquatic resources, aquatic habitats and oceans.

Upon recruitment, fishery officer cadets receive 18 weeks of classroom training through the Fishery Officer Career Progression Program (FOCPP), which is designed to provide them with the knowledge and skills that will be required to perform their future duties as fishery officers and covers topics such as fish identification, fishing gear, acts and regulations, use of force, enforcement methods and operation of small crafts.

Upon successful completion of the classroom training, the cadets are appointed to a GT-02 fishery officer position and are required to complete an additional 30 months of field training in order to be appointed to a GT-04 position. During this period the fishery officer trainees learn and acquire the field knowledge and techniques that they will require throughout their careers. The fishery officer trainees are shadowed by a field trainer who evaluates their performance based on the statement of merit criteria and recommend promotion where appropriate.

After being promoted to the GT-04 level, the fishery officers are essentially responsible, in discussions with their supervisor, to determine their training needs and submit a learning plan indicating courses that they would like to take to further develop their careers. In addition to this, fishery officers are also often required to complete mandatory training in order to stay current with safety procedures and with the ever changing world of enforcement.

A few years ago, it was identified that fishery officers were often unable to find courses that suited their career development objectives and that training opportunities were not equal from a region to another. Also, as the regions played a large role in selecting the courses to be delivered to their fishery officers, there was much duplication of effort and lack of consistency in the trainings offered to the fishery officers across the organization. These issues were resolved in 2013 when C&P had recourse to online training solutions.

The purpose of this solicitation is to obtain the services of a provider of online training solutions for police and law enforcement personnel, to ensure that C&P can continue to provide fishery officers with access to relevant quality online training that is consistent across the country and to keep track of the training history for each fishery officer.
