You have chosen to become a security guard in Ontario. You need to know the basics so that you can work safely and carry out your duties in a professional way. The law in Ontario says that you must receive 40 hours of training.
This course covers all the important areas needed for this basic training. It was designed to help you pass the provincial exam and earn your security guard licenses.
The course is written directly to you, the student.
This means that you should actively work in your own note book. This will help you remember the information better than if you just read it. This workbook is written in plain language, and it has a number of study aids to help you learn the material.
Before the content of each unit you will find:
A list of the objectives for the unit. These are the main things that you will learn in the unit;
- In some chapters you will find a pre-test so you can see how much you already know about the material in the unit;
- An outline of what’s coming up in the unit.
- At the end of each unit you will find:
- A review of the important points from the unit.
This manual is not intended to replace professional trainers. If there is anything you do not understand, be sure to let your trainer know. Trainers have the experience to help bring this material to life and to provide you with valuable examples from the security industry. When you start working as a guard, you will gain your own important on-the-job experience.
You will be glad to know that First aid and Cpr will be given to you free of cost for taking our Security program. You will also receive Conflict Resolution to increase your skills and help protect yourself and others as you perform your duties.
These materials will describe, in general terms, the duties and responsibilities of a Security Guard. It is expected that students will become familiar enough with the materials that they will not only be able to write (and pass) an examination, but will also be able to keep the content of these pages in mind as they are called upon from day to day in the performance of their duties.
