As several of our students have found, the security industry is a portal to many opportunities in the field of law, security, and public safety. Many people enter the security field to start and maintain a career as a security guard, and/or in loss prevention, where others enter as a stepping stone to policing, corrections and the like.

However, should you have questions regarding your training, or any parts of it, qualified trainers are available to give you personal assistance and coaching.

What our students say about our course

I signed up on SecurGARD Security Guard Training Program in the spring of 2010. Shortly after I gained my security guard license and began working in security. In 2011, I joined Peel Regional Police as a 3rd Degree Police Constable. I recommend anyone interested in security to enroll in SecurGARD Security Guard Training Program. It is simple and fast.

I just want to say thank you for the course. I passed with an 87%!!! I think this was fantastic considering the fact it was online, done at my pace, and completely done via reading.

Michelle Ferderbar

Windsor, ON

The course material is complete and easy to study. I also found the online test was great as well. The ministry exam is challenging and I needed to do the SecurGARD practice test a few times. This way I completed the training, and knew I would do well on the final Ministry test. So I didn’t have to keep on paying $60 each time I failed the ministry exam.
