WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
“We see this type of program not as a competitive advantage, but as a way for the security industry in Ontario to adapt higher training standards that go beyond Ministry guidelines. It is important that we offer security professionals the best training tools available and thanks to your hard work over the last several years, it looks like that will be possible.”
Ernest, President of Security Guard Company in Ontario
“It is important that we provide our existing staff with a wide range of training options so they are well prepared for the Ministry testing. Having an online curriculum is in our arsenal of training tools. In the past, we have had high success using a blended approach to learning and it is even mandated for certain worksites to ensure contract compliance. It is great to have a curriculum standard that has been created by both security industry and education experts in Ontario.”
Daniel, District Manager, Branch Office of Global Security Guard provider
