Commissionaires announces National Training Institute

Prompted by continued business growth and demand for its services, Commissionaires has created CNTI, a national training institute now offering top-ranked security training and customer service courses at locations across the country.

While Commissionaires has trained thousands of students at its individual locations for years, this is the first time its training is being offered on a national basis.

“We’ve built our 87-year reputation on our high standards of security training and superior service we provide,” says Paul Guindon, Chairman of Commissionaires’ National Business Management Committee. “Through CNTI, we now supply that expert knowledge and quality training to clients across Canada.”

“Whether you are looking to enter the security field, upgrade your skills or train a workforce, you’ll benefit from the hands on approach of our expert trainers,” says Guindon. ”Many of our instructors come from the military where they’ve spent their careers training in combat environments and austere locations. They are able to bring their real life experiences to the classroom and deliver interactive and dynamic content that leaves their students empowered and well prepared for a career in the security field.”

In addition to security training, the CNTI roster also includes “Service Advantage,” a popular course on providing excellence in customer service, as well as marine facility training. Commissionaires can also tailor courses to meet client’s specific needs. Commissionaires is one of the few companies nationally certified to train both security guards and supervisors by the Canadian General Standards Boards. Its security courses are ISO compliant and exceed provincial security training requirements.

Specifically, CNTI includes:

  • Security Guarding – covering a range of topics from incident response and bomb threats to patrol functions;
  • Service Advantage – a unique course designed to help businesses deliver customer service excellence in an increasingly competitive marketplace;
  • Marine Facility Security Training – two courses for employees of Canadian ports and marine facilities to meet Transport Canada’s Marine Transportation Security Regulations across the country.
