security Officer Program

The road to becoming a competent security officer begins here

Security Officers are often the face of the company they are contracted to protect. They are usually the first point of contact for their visiting clients and the first line of defense in case of emergency. Businesses require Security Officers that not only understand security basics but also posses the ability to make decisions and demonstrate the courage to act.
