Since it's inception, Tip of Spear has been completely focused on providing quality training.

Why Choose Us For Your Training?


Whether you stay in this field a short time before moving on to a professional law enforcement career or make it your home, we can make you better. We have worked with people who already have extensive history in this industry and they come away with great experiences.

Our philosophy includes creating an informal/comfortable training setting right from the beginning, because this relaxes our students - they can then focus on learning the skills they need for this very serious business. We put a great deal of research and planning into creating an environment which fosters optimal learning, including numerous verbal techniques, hardware, and environmental ergonomics ranging from humor, and high tech devices, to the unusual layout of our classroom desks. All of this, and more, puts you into the best state of mind for learning.


If you don't have the required equipment for our physical courses, you can purchase it from our partner Supply Sergeant at West Edmonton Mall in person, or online at ww.supplysergeant.ca. 

Are You Already An Experienced Professional?
You're already great at what you do? Then you are here because you want to be better. Do you want to be the best? Not sure if we are the right choice? We are confident that we can make you better - maybe, the best. 


Our Instructors Have Real World Operations Experience

It is a fact that there is a difference between "Doing" and "Teaching"! Even a great instructor, who has very little real world experience in his subject, is limited in how far he can lead you to your goals. We know this, and that's why our instructors also have EXTENSIVE field experience.

Our Field Experience includes;


Loss Prevention, Bars, Military, Corrections, Peace Officer, Special Events, Labour Disputes, Hospitals, Office Tower Settings, Casinos, Bands, Hotels, Retail Settings. 


We have lived and breathed this industry our whole life.

We are passionate about increasing the standard of training in this industry.
We have an ingrained belief in the mission of looking after people.

To do this, we have determined that our focus should be on making our training; Accessible, Affordable, and Relevant. 

Our enthusiasm and passion WILL change this industry over time.
