In Yukon, `re-cert' must be done annually. Its a laborious process ha ha, Hopefully, next time for me things will run smoother.

Here in the Northwest Territories we do not have any legislation for the security industry.  We did back in the late 1980s.  It was called the Locksmith, Security Guard and Other Security Occupations act.  That law has since been repealed.  Nunavut also does not regulate private security, the only one of the three territories that regulate private security is the Yukon.

Do any one knows the lenght of term for security guard registration.? Empty Alberta

Post by Admin Wed Aug 10, 2016 9:09 am

 Alberta Basic Security Training                                  
Effective June 1, 2011, all applicants1 for a security workers licence in Alberta must successfully complete a mandatory training course or provide proof of equivalent training in order to qualify for a licence.  Existing licensees and individuals renewing a licence are not required to complete mandatory training at this time. See the SSIA Approved Training Course Provider List above to find a course.
This training applies to the following licence classes: 

  • Security Service Workers
  • Executive Protection Workers
  • Loss Prevention Workers
  • Patrol Dog Handlers2
  • Security Alarm Responders 

Alberta Basic Security Training Course (ABST)
This is the Government of Alberta’s basic security training course.  Companies can licence this course for use in training.  Click the links for more [url=https://www.solgps.alberta.ca/programs_and_services/public_security/security_programs/Publications/SSIA Training Program/ABST-AIT Licence Guidelines.pdf]information on licensing the ABST[/url] and the [url=https://www.solgps.alberta.ca/programs_and_services/public_security/security_programs/Forms/Training Program Forms/Request to Licence ABST Course %28PS0010%29.pdf]application form[/url].
Accredited Basic Security Training Courses (AccBST)
Accredited basic security training courses have been reviewed by and accredited by the Ministry.  These courses meet the same training standards as the ABST.  Companies offering AccBST will have a Certificate of Accreditation issued by the Ministry of Justice and Solicitor General, Security Programs, as proof of accreditation.  Accreditation must be renewed every 3 years.  For more information, contact the Accreditation Analyst at solgps.training@gov.ab.ca.

Further to Admin's post, anyone working in the industry prior to June 1, 2011 was grandfathered into the SSIA in Alberta.  Thankfully, I was one of those guys.  You'll need to renew, not re-certify, your guard card BEFORE your expiry date.  Otherwise, if you let it lapse, you'll have to take the ABST course all over again.  

I know that the gov't sends out renewal reminders now through your email and possibly snail mail, letting you know when to start the process, but keep in mind, at least in Alberta, getting a clearance check through Calgary Police has gotten longer and longer.  I've been told this is because the same agency that does CPIC checks are now doing background checks on all refugees that come into the country.

Sorry for the long response, I'm on nights and a little bored.
