Getting Started With Guard Training In Ontario

What is the process for a Guard Training student in the province of Ontario?

Our fully online training course is a government-mandated 40-hours of training. We offer two packages to pick from; Basic Security Training and The Fast Track Bundle.

The Ontario Basic Security Training costs $149.00 and includes the full Guard Training course.

The Fast Track Bundle costs $249.00 and includes the full Ontario Security Guard Training course, one provincial examination fee, and four other courses: Mental Health Awareness & De-Escalation Online Training, Fatigue Awareness, Respectful Workplace: Preventing Harassment and Violence, and a WHMIS (GHS) Training Online course. This bundle gives you additional courses and skills to help you stand out in the job market.

Step 3: Send us an email with your attached Consent Form and First Aid Certificate to info@guardtraining.ca
