The SGC difference
Ministry approved expert created courses
What a security guard is permitted to do while on duty is strictly regulated — that’s why you need to be trained by experts who follow Ministry guidelines. Our course is created by experienced private security experts and follows the syllabus that the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services (MCSCS) has outlined to prepare Ontario’s security guards of tomorrow. Our course follows that syllabus so you can pass your exam and meet the qualifications necessary to apply for your license.
You won’t find a better exam preparation than our online Security Guard Course. Our lessons will teach you the essential skills and knowledge to pass your exam and prepare you for a rewarding career. We’ve also made sure that every detail of the Ministry-approved curriculum is included along with practical exercises including a practise exam, that you can do at home.
Working as a security guard, most encounters you have will be positive and you will deal with calm and reasonable people on a daily basis. However, there are times when this isn’t true and not everyone you come into contact with is going to be friendly or cooperative. That’s why we feel it’s just as important to provide real life training in addition to what you need to know to pass your exam. Being prepared for real-life situations that you may encounter while working in the security field will give you peace of mind that you will be confident in your guarding abilities once you are working.

(Even if you don’t intend on ever being a private investigator, our private investigator training will teach you legal and practical information that will make you a well-rounded in-demand security professional.)
Use of Force Course: this course will prepare you how to defend yourself if necessary, and when and how to use force.
