Security staff that can contribute to a fire safe facility are infinitely more valuable and desirable to clients and property owners than security personnel who are only aware of security specific duties. This is true whether a uniformed security guard protecting a property such as an office building or factory, or a VIP protection detail ensuring the safety of a principle in a variety of settings.

"It was very easy to use. Quick, simple, and straight to the point. I especially liked how you can pause when you need to and pick right back up with no problem at all."
"I appreciated the capability within the Lesson 1 videos to be able to pause them to record notes more thoroughly. The audio mixed with the words printed on the slide helped out a lot too. I was able to make sure I got the points recorded accurately for that reason."
"The examples explained after the description of the penal codes really helped me understand them, even more. The videos were descriptive as well, when it came to talking about self defense laws and using force on the job. Very informative about trespassing penal codes, I learned a lot more than I ever even known about trespassing, up till now."
"As a retired police officer, I am glad to see that the security employees are trained so well. This helps both the security personnel and the police. It gives the security personnel far more credibility in the eyes of law enforcement and the public."
"I have been a peace officer in California for 22 years and have attended 1,000's of hours of training, including 100's of hours of on-line training (both law enforcement and private sector training). By far, Palladium's curriculum, training materials and the training platform are the best. The environment was very easy to navigate and the materials were presented in a very easy to learn format. For anyone out there who is looking into becoming a professional security guard, I recommend Palladium On-Line Security Training Center for their training needs. I will be attending Palladium in the future for my additional training requirements."
Greg Lewis, Private Investigator/Qualified Manager
"I have 22 years of law enforcement experience in several different capacities. I thought taking this course was just going to be a formality. But not only did I find the information in the modules interesting, I also learned quite a bit. And the price was right too. Thanks Palladium!"
