Why Should You Get Security Guard Training?
Ah Stephen Colbert, when will you learn? Did you learn nothing of watching other Hollywood celebrities attempt to run for office? Look at what happened to Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jesse “The Body” Ventura. Hmm, maybe those are bad examples….
Another family experienced a pickpocket the first day after arriving in Italy. They knew the statistics, but were very excited about the first day and taking in the sites. Thieves got away with credit cards, cash and passports.
The career colleges and training academy’s are also offering the course. These classes are generally offered in-classroom. The cost is not usually published, so you need to talk to a recruiter. The training is usually 4 weeks. Many of the programs include Emergency First Aid.
A home security camera can be an even better deterrent than a burglar alarm or a how to start a security guard company. A camera can be used to identify the bad guys catching them red handed indoors or outdoors.
4) Ask your current guards who are working for you if they know any other talented guards. The best guards usually have friends who share their work ethic. It makes sense to approach them and see what other people they know and you can possibly bring them into your company or at least interview them.
Before departing for your hotel stay, inform others of where you will be staying. Upon arrival, phone in and let others know that you have arrived as well as your room number. If you have multiple days that you are going to be away and lots of movement during your stay, check in with others periodically to let them know you are doing alright.
4) Make sure your guards have sufficient customer service skillls. This is the single most overlooked problem in the security industry as a whole. Guards are not just officers, they interact with people and represent the companies they work for. Being polite and respectful to all they come in contact with is a must because it directly effects the bottom line.
4) Let the guards know that they are on a trial basis for ninety days. During that ninety days, test their knowledge. Make sure they read post orders and know what you expect from them. If you or a security supervisor is not clear in terms of what they must do each hour of each day then they may very well not give you what you want or need.
