There has been such rapid growth in the fields of public and private safety that industry training can’t keep up with the demand for qualified professionals. Extensive hands-on training will prepare you for a wide range of careers in security, enforcement, investigations, inspection, risk assessment and emergency planning. Protection, security and investigation (PSI) is all about being prepared – learning how to deal with any situation and then practising these scenarios so you’re ready to face them in the real world: Two four-week on-the-job placements, which can be completed locally or from coast to coast. The program coordinator organizes placements. Receive hands-on training in surveillance, arrest and restraint techniques, managing conflict, emergency planning and incident response to serious situations. Conduct your own crime scene investigation, gathering evidence, conducting interviews, taking statements, and sharpening your skills in critical thinking and problem solving. Prepare to secure the job you want with panel interviews, résumé writing, portfolio development and justice job testing. Participate in field trips that allow you to network with industry professionals and leaders as well as gain experience with the latest security technology on the market.
