BC Security Training

It is imperative that Individuals and Private Security Corporations entering or returning to the Security Industry be provided the best opportunity to meet compliance and be afforded the ability to undertake professional, recognized and accredited, governmentally approved training to ensure the very best quality of service to their clients, employers and general public. This legislation has created a Provincial standard, improving accountability, enhancing professionalism and ensuring legislated professional standards for security training.

Individuals must complete Basic Security Training (BST) mandatory certication in order to apply for a security license in British Columbia.  In addition, in order to be legally authorized to handcuffs, individuals must take a mandatory Advanced Security Training (AST)- Use of Force/Restraints program.
