During the Certificate of Knowledge in Policing (CKP) course, the students complete a mandatory National Centre for Applied Learning Technologies (NCALT) training which is approximately one hour in duration, on mental health, covering Autism and the following points:

The Met have only attested CKP recruits since August 2018 (therefore making them officers). In this time, the Met have trained 1,830 officers (including the current intake of 243).

The May 2016 date referenced in the question therefore pre dates CKP students being constables.
