  • I couldn’t be more pleased. Deciding on security as a new career I chose this Centre based on their outstanding reputation and they didn’t disappoint. They exceeded any and all expectations that I might have had. Pinpoint classroom instruction communicated in a professional setting allowed everyone to engage in healthy dialogue and debate to really drive the message home. Hands on interaction, role play and real life simulations helped train me to leave there confident and excited about my new role. Special shout out to Bev, Mike and Fred, the 3 stars of the show.

  • I chose them because of the great reviews that preceded me and I was not let down! Retired Police officer Doug Sansom is truly the star of the show and his instructional style is both engaging and informative. He has decades of policing experience and that is what stood out for both the security and PI training courses. Stephanie is an amazing bubbly person who does it all. Bev is thorough and extremely helpful. I received everything I was promised to the T and I would recommend anyone seeking a career in security or PI work should choose the Centre for Security Training and Management!
