Save

While many people may not take security guards seriously, they are a vital part of law enforcement. Security guards are an extra set of eyes, and sometimes an extra set of hands. For those who want to improve their performance on the job, there are various online training courses available to make them better, more knowledgeable security professionals.

Variety

  • There are several companies offering security guard training online. Some of these companies are professional security agencies such as the Top Security Agency, and others are more education-based sites such as Linkonlearning.com. Regardless of what you want to learn, there are many options in where to get your online security guard training.

Courses

  • Online security guard training is usually split into several modules, each covering a certain skill. For instance, if you want to learn about security guard arrest powers and the circumstances where you can use them, you can take that course and only that course. Other modules might cover subjects like loss prevention, public relations or management roles in security.

Advantages

  • There are various advantages to online training for security guards. There are no distance restrictions for instance, and there's no time or effort lost in travel. As long as students have a computer and an Internet connection they can take their courses from home or office. Most courses also offer sample tests and provide contact information for security professionals who can answer students' questions.

Disadvantages

  • Online, there is no hands-on training or experience, which may be important in the security industry. Additionally there is no personal contact among students, or between students and their instructor. An online security guard training course might look good on your resume, but it is not a guarantee of getting a position in the security industry.

Price

  • Each company sets its own price for their training modules. A single online module might cost as little as $60, but a full training course could cost several hundred dollars. It all depends on where you get your online training.
