PWM Loss Prevention Services Inc. is offering the Alberta Basic Security Training (ABST).
PWM is licensed and accredited to deliver the ABST training, and is offering to provide the training component of the individual license application to all qualified applicants.
Qualified individuals may apply to the Solicitor General for a Security Services license. This will require a police background check (currently appx. 2 weeks of waiting and under $50 with associated costs), and the ABST training, which must be supplied by an accredited academy.
The police background check and the passing grade on the ABST exam are prerequisites to the provincial license application. All materials, and (currently) $100 must be sent to the Solicitor General in compliance with SSIA regulations, and the individual applicant is assessed for the license, which permits them to work anywhere in the industry. The license must be renewed every two years.
The ABST course is 40 hours of mandatory classroom attendance and requires a strong comprehension of the English language both written and verbal.
