Security Guard – First Aid not included

In order to write your Provincial Exam and apply for your Ontario Security Guard License, students must complete the 40hr Course which is divided between 33.5hrs of online study and a 1-day in-class Emergency Level First Aid & CPR Level C Certificate.

To become a great security guard that excels at their job, start with a solid foundation. Other security guard courses will teach you the bare minimum but our training course will prepare you for your first job and give you confidence. When companies hire a security guard they expect them to be fully trained and able to handle a variety of situations. An inadequately trained security guard may endanger themselves, but can also compromise the health and safety of those around them.
