Security Guard Training - Quebec

Basic training for an exciting career in security

In Quebec, the Security Guard licence issued by Bureau de la Sécurité privée (BSP) (BSP) is mandatory for every person wishing to perform security tasks (example: search, access control, etc.). This obligation applies as much to people who want to work for private security agencies as to non-specialized employers. Before applying for this licence, you must complete a 70-hour security guard training program recognized by the BSP.

Our Security Guard Training program offered in French, recognized by the Bureau de la Sécurité privée (BSP), will provide you with the skills and abilities essential to practice the profession of security officer in Quebec. Our team is composed of professionals who put at your service several years of experience both in the field and in teaching to facilitate your learning.
