Want to know more about Toronto GTA Security Training?  Want to know the process of getting your security guard license?  Here are the most common questions we get!

Toronto GTA Security Training is an independent learning provider under contract with a licensed security guard agency in Ontario.  We provide the 40 hour Ontario Security Guard training as prescribed by The Ministry of Private Security and Investigative Services Act 2005.  We provide security guard training, and first aid & CPR training.

We have been providing security guard training and first aid training for 6 years.

The cost is $123.49, or $79.99 with no CPR.

We have a blended course consisting of 32 hours of on-line training + 8 hours in-class training.

Sorry, we do not.  The course is designed to keep costs low.  Therefore we offer 32 hours on-line + 8 hours in-class.

Yes, assuming you have valid first aid training.  If you do not, you have to come in for 1 day to do the first aid and CPR training.

Yes, a valid CPR certificate is required for your security guard license.

Emergency first aid and CPR with AED level C is the minimum.

If you have Standard first aid, that is fine as well because it is superior to emergency first aid.

CPR with no first aid is no sufficient, nor is level A or B.  It must be level C.

As long as it is WSIB approved, it will be accepted and you will be omitted from re-doing the first aid course.

The Canadian Red Cross, St. John’s Ambulance, and Heart and Stroke Foundation are the three biggest first aid program providers in Canada, but there are more that are WSIB approved.

Toronto GTA Security Training empoys talented web programmers who design the academy’s LMS to be as innovative and intuitive as possible.  Our lessons are easy to follow, and illustrate a clear path to student’s progress, and when you will finish the 32 hours.  Our LMS platform includes:

Toronto GTA Security Training has incorporated an intuitive and innovative way to eliminate downloading of anything, aside from the mandatory consent form.  As per PSISB regulations, there must be an on-line journal of your progress.  After you finish every lesson, our LMS platform automatically e-mails you your lesson including any notes you wish to include in your lessons.  This eliminates the need for submitting any documentation to us, because our system automatically takes care of it!

Yes, it is mandatory.  All students must fill one out.

Yes, we have a 97 question practice exam.  You must achieve 70% or above to pass.
