I had such a fantastic experience with the Guard Training program! The course was insightful and I was able to get my license on the first attempt. I’m super happy and recommend this course to anyone that wants to get trained.

Prior to enrolling in the basic course at the Canadian Academy of Guard Training, I had no experience in any related industry. I was impressed with the course content [and] professionalism. To say I learned a lot would be an understatement. Great work and student focus! Truly appreciated.
