All SecurAmerica security officer candidates MUST attend SecurAmerica’s orientation and pre-hire training program BEFORE they are officially employed by us. In fact, this training is still considered a part of the pre-employment process and a formal job offer can only be made subject to the successful completion of this training. The completion of state training, possession of a valid security officer license or previous training received through a competitor cannot be used to circumvent this training.
SecurAmerica’s pre-hire training curriculum is designed to provide our security officers with a well-rounded foundation of the technical and communicative skills required to succeed as service-oriented security professionals. Curriculum is based on the latest asset protection source material available. The program is taught by our own certified instructor(s) and extensively uses scenarios and class participation to gauge understanding of subject and concept.
While other security providers rely exclusively on e-learning and videos as a primary method of instruction, SecurAmerica believes that instructor-led training, particularly in a pre-hire and pre-site deployment setting, is essential in delivering the maximum learning experience for participants. This method of instruction also plays a critical role in assessing the communication skills, attitude, reliability and overall demeanor of the new officer and, as such, serves as a final element of our selection process.
Instructor-led pre-hire classroom training exceeds state licensing standards and includes (at a minimum) the following core subject areas:
All officer candidates attending the pre-hire training program will be required to complete and pass (at 80%) a 50 question closed book examination covering the material.
