Getting Started With Guard Training in Alberta

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

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 Alberta Security Guard Training costs $149.00 and includes the full Guard Training course.

The Fast Track Bundle costs $249.00 and includes the full Alberta Security Guard Training, 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.

Getting Registered

Step 1: Register for the online course and begin training.

Step 2: Once you have completed the online course, you can send an email to info@guardtraining.ca that includes your name, address, birth date, and the day you completed your training.

Step 3: We then connect you with our Government appointed Proctor to book an exam date and time in your city.

Step 4: Once you have completed the exam, the Proctor will submit your results to the Solicitor General of Alberta and they will provide you with your results directly. You will also receive a Program Completion Certificate which will be required when applying for your Security License.

Step 4: Get a criminal record check and your photo signed at your local police station. This check must include your criminal record, vulnerable sector, and local database.

Step 5: Begin your security license application. The Alberta Security License application is $100, which is valid for 2 years. The Alberta Government requires license holders to re-apply every two years to maintain a license. Below is a link to the Alberta Government website that includes the step-by-step process for applying for a License, as well as the requirements:
