If that info can actually be posted here too, looking for courses as well. Just missed a CVSA course in the NWT unfortunately and they won't be hosting one for another year or so.

If a course comes up I would be seriously interested! I am not sure how this site works and learning, if there's anywhere else I should look please let me know!
Best Regards!

Ladies / Gents

There have been some CPO resources that have offered this in the past. But I would strongly recommend speaking with Lethbridge College on this. They have allowed individuals to jump in on their CVE recruit classes.

I have taken the Weights and Dimensions course through Lethbridge College as well as the course through Leduc County. Both courses are great and are pretty much a carbon copy of each other.

Historically, if you call the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement class with Lethbridge College, they will be able to tell you when the next course is going ahead. For those of you who can't send your Officers, I'm sure someone will post a course on the AACPO site sometime in the future.

As far as CVSA training, CVEB usually does Spring and Fall classes. Fall classes are around this time of year. You can reach out to Sgt. Wes Roth with Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Branch and he may be able to fill you in on the next CVSA class. Wes.Roth@gov.ab.ca

The Lethbridge College Course is 4 months long. I took the CVSA course offered through the province. It's a 2 week course, and is free of cost. The contact I have to get on the waiting list is Amy NASEWICH. Amy.Nasewich@gov.ab.ca

Just to clarify...Those 4 months would be the all encompassing recruit training. A weights/dimensions course is usually a week long.

Just for clarification sake, I'm going to be "that guy."

If you have the TSA appointment you have ALL the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Authority. You can check cargo, weights, vehicle equipment etc. Its just a matter of knowing what you're doing.

The only exceptions to that authority is Federal logbooks and Dangerous Goods.

With all of that said I HIGHLY suggest taking the training as it is invaluable and will follow you through the rest of your career. I obtained my certification 10 years ago in Lethbridge with Commercial Vehicle Enforcement, and if it weren't for that training I don't know where I would be.

An update on CVE....Wes has retired and Amy is no longer in the Red Deer office so their e-mail addresses are no longer valid.

No recruiting has been done for 2020 and as CVE has been moved into the Sheriffs branch, any training for CVE at the Lethbridge College is currently under review.


If anyone would like a summary of the amendments to the CV Dimension & Weight Regulation (including the errors that affect enforcement on non provincial highways) I would be happy to provide it.

Any questions on CVE training or a request for the regulation summary can be sent to me at hilary.bouzek@gov.ab.ca


A few of you might remember me....
