Security Guard Training

Security guard training delivered to the highest standards

Commissionaires offers a comprehensive curriculum of security guard training, taught to Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) federal standards. This level of training exceeds the industry norm and even provincial standards. Our rigorous training standards ensure each participant is prepared, upon completion, to tackle real-life security guarding scenarios professionally. Courses are led by experienced teachers who are committed to the success of each individual.

Why you should take this training

Our courses train students to the highest possible standards and prepare them for required testing. By taking this security guard training course, participants will gain practical knowledge that allows them to immediately apply new skills and experience to their roles as security professionals. Our courses are designed to utilize the life experiences of each participant and build on existing skills for advancement across all levels.

When we train students, including our own Commissionaires guards, we train to the exacting standards of the Canadian General Standards Board, at no additional cost. We are one of the few organizations who provide this added level of training.
