The PNPA Cadetship Program is a Government Scholarship Program. It is a 4-year schooling and preparation program prompting the Bachelor of Science in Public Safety degree. Hopeful cadets must take the PNPA Cadet Admission Test (PNPACAT) to be equipped for the subsequent enlistment stage.

PNPA (Philippine National Police Academy) is a prestigious institution in the Philippines that trains young individuals to become competent and professional law enforcement officers. The PNPA is the premier government institution that offers a Bachelor of Science in Public Safety degree program, which aims to produce highly skilled, responsible, and ethical police officers who will serve the country with honor and excellence.

Applicants must also meet specific requirements, such as being a Filipino citizen, unmarried and without any children, being physically and mentally fit, and having a minimum height of 5’2″ for male and 5’0″ for female applicants

Becoming a PNPA cadet is not just a job but a calling to serve and protect the people of the Philippines. It requires dedication, discipline, and a strong sense of duty. The PNPA offers a comprehensive training program that covers various aspects of law enforcement, including police operational procedures, criminal investigation, leadership and management, and community relations.

Graduates are appointed as Police Lieutenants of the Philippine National Police, Inspectors of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology and the Bureau of Fire Protection.
