Security Guard Training

Did you know?
The Private Security and Investigative Services Act, 2005 (PSISA) has had significant legislative changes that identify professional requirements for security guards.

Under the Act, any business that employs its own in-house security personnel, but is not in the business of selling security services, is required to register with the Private Security and Investigative Services Branch of the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.

Who should attend the security guard training course?
This includes, but is not limited to hotels, restaurants and bars that employ security guards and bouncers. Businesses that employ their own in-house security guards and/or private investigators will have to register with the Private Security and Investigative Services Branch and their security personnel will have to be licensed.

Why You Should Take This Course
The Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services’ Training and Test Regulation commenced April 15, 2010 stipulating that all new applicants will be required to successfully complete basic training and pass the ministry test prior to applying for a security guard licence under the Act.  This 40 hour Basic Security Guard course will ensure that the successful student will possess the required basic knowledge to pass the Ministry test and the skills to perform the basic duties of a security guard in Ontario. 

What are the minimum requirements to hold a security guard licence?
To be eligible for a licence, individuals must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older;
  • Be eligible to work in Canada; and
  • Have no convictions for a prescribed offence for which you have not been granted a pardon.

Not all the sections of the basic training curriculum apply to my employee’s job description. Why does the Ministry require the full course?
The training program set out by the Ministry ensures all security practitioners possess the necessary skills and knowledge, no matter what type of security work they do. Having everyone trained to the same basic level of knowledge ensures standards are consistent across Ontario.
