Security Officer Academy
Although turnover is high and the work is often less than challenging, the job function is critical to a corporation’s overall security. On a daily basis, guards and security officers are the eyes and ears that alert the security department to any suspicious activity. They are usually the first responders to any incident onsite, and in an emergency, they become the voice of the security department, communicating emergency procedures and shepherding employees to safety.
Good training for entry-level employees is the cornerstone of a successful security staff. Not only does it improve the quality of the service that security officers and surveillance personnel provide, it also acts as a jumping-off point for job growth and further training, and allows management to identify talented employees and promote them through the ranks. Rather than revolving door.
By initial training at the beginning of employment there is a greater chance to reduce liability for the client, the security company, and officer. This training can reduce field training time, which can put the officer immediately into assignment and instill confidence for the position. Students will receive certifications in many of the academics offered in this program, this gives students pride and ownership into their new career.
