Skeptical of an online purchase I called in to validate. I was greeted in a friendly, professional manner and the representative took the time to reassure me of the online purchase. The content is exactly what you need for the Alberta Security Guard Licence. I was confident heading into and leaving the exam. I only wish I wrote down the name of who I spoke with when I called in, he was a great company representative and I hope this review can somehow make its way to him! Great service and product!

I have just finished the Security Guard course and found it to be well written and easy to follow. The quiz at the end of each module helped me confirm that I understood the material it covered. I can honestly say that I feel that this course gave me a good grasp of the current regulations and legal aspects of the industry.
