Training To Become A Security Guard
Security is an industry that is steadily increasing in importance, especially since the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Recent world-wide events have also driven the need for additional security personnel. Increased terrorism along with the ever increasing cost of policing, has caused an increase in demand for security personnel. In Ontario, security guards must be licensed under the Private Security and Investigative Services Act (PSISA). The process for obtaining a license involves meeting the criteria for a license and completing required training and testing.
Security Guard Training Ontario is a division of Infinity Human Resource Group Inc. (Infinity), an online training provider that has been delivering computer based and online training for over 20 years. Infinity has developed a number of online courses including mandatory Ontario Ministry of Labour Health and Safety Awareness courses for Workers and Supervisors. The courses developed by Infinity employ engaging and interactive elements to ensure that they provide course content that is easy to understand and clear. Infinity instructors also have extensive real world experience in law enforcement and provide excellent support.
The process of obtaining your security guard license in Ontario begins with ensuring that you meet the criteria for licensing, which includes the following:
- You must be 18 years of age or older.
- You must be eligible to work in Canada.
- You must have a clean criminal record (which means you must not have been convicted of, and not been granted a pardon for, any of the offences set out in the following link Offences).
Once you have confirmed that you are eligible to become a security guard the next step is to complete the basic training and testing requirements. The PSISA mandates that all new security guards must complete a basic training course and pass the basic ministry test before applying for a license.
Security Certification Course
Now that you are sure that you meet the criteria to be a security guard in Ontario the next step is to register for the basic training course.
