What Our Students Say About Our Courses

Completely Surpassed Our Expectations

Career In Security (by SecurGARD) offered a fantastic online security course! Their knowledge and training completely surpassed our expectations.

Best Decision That I Made

SecurGARD’s Career In Security offered amazing training and allowed me to complete my security training and prepare for my security license in 2020. One of the best decisions that I made. It’s as easy as signing up and completing the content. Highly recommended!

Complete and Easy to Study

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.

Done At My Own Pace

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.

It Is Simple and Fast

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.

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

SecurGARD training programs are designed to allow you to study independently; however, our qualified trainers are always here to help in times when you have questions or require assistance.
