The most important element in having a competent, well rounded, knowledgeable security officer is the training they must endure. LaGarda Security realizes the importance of a well trained officer, and goes to great lengths to ensure that their officers complete a comprehensive training course. This is one key to achieving a positive and conscientious attitude in an officer.
The instructors of these training courses have years of experience and specialized training. They use materials such as pamphlets, the LaGarda Security Training Manual, and video tapes. There is also a training library available to assist future security officers. This library contains training videos, books, manuals, and many other resources that pertain to the security profession. The materials used in these courses are constantly being updated in order to keep up with the newest technology in the security field.
