Training Programs



Introduction

PSPA Training Programs have been developed as an introduction as well as a fundamental foundation of education from which additional study should be sought.

Private Security Professionals must be well trained and knowledgeable. They must have available to them up-to-date employer resources including but not limited to policies and procedures applicable to each job-at-hand in addition to accessible and effective senior and/or executive level operational and legal guidance. The ability to understand and comply with today’s ever-changing laws, rules, and regulations, coupled with job-site-specific policies and procedures is paramount to the success of the Private Security Professional and those with whom he/she serves.

PSPA advocates that all Private Security Professionals meet all applicable federal, state, and local requirement(s) prior to any deployment for work. Additionally, PSPA advocates that all Private Security Professionals acquire and retain all requisite educational skillsets and hands-on field training necessary to lawfully, safely and effectively perform all general, as well as, site-specific job requirements, policies, procedures and best practices prior to any deployment for work.

As with all educational and/or training programs, continuing education and refresher training must be sought in order to remain current with today’s ever-changing laws, rules, regulations, and best practices.
