What is OST Security Training?

Are you looking for a job? Is English your second language? OST Security Training can help you find an entry-level security job by offering both English and job-specific workplace training.

Students receive language instruction combined with a job-specific training and receive a graduation certificate from TIES upon completion, making them eligible to write the Alberta Basic Security Provincial exam.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to the Professional Security Industry
  • The Canadian Legal System
  • Basic Security Procedures
  • Communication
  • Documentation and Evidence
  • Emergency Response Procedures
  • Health and Safety

In addition to technical skills training, you will also receive a chance to meet employers for workshops, presentations, and mock interviews. Students also receive a FREE monthly bus pass while they are enrolled in class.

Is childcare available?

Students receive up to $500/month per child to purchase childcare services from a licensed facility while they are enrolled in class.
