As in other provinces, any person performing security services in Alberta must be properly licensed. This includes any person employed in security services, alarm response, loss prevention, executive protection, or as a dog handler.
Regardless of job title, all security professionals perform similar kinds of tasks. Some of the activities you will be expected to do in the course of your duties are
Patrolling of premises and/or grounds
Monitoring alarm systems and responding when appropriate
Limiting access to individuals or locations
Observing and reporting criminal activity or signs of a crime
Responding to emergencies
Documenting interactions and events
Presenting a professional image
Arresting those found committing a crime
The first step toward working as a licenced security professional is to attend and complete an Alberta Government approved Security Training Course.
Training is conducted over a five day period, with the provincial examination being held on the last day. Through lectures, demonstrations, and in-class scenarios we will cover the following subjects:
Introduction to the Security Industry
The Canadian Legal System and Security Professionals
Basic Security Procedures
Communication for Security Professionals
Documentation and Evidence
Emergency Response Procedures for Security Professionals
Health & Safety for Security Professionals...and much more.
Presented by instructors with decades of experience in law enforcement and investigations, the PSS ABST course provides a solid foundation for an exciting new career as a security professional.
