Services for Employers of Security Officers

WITH ALL THE TRAINING SCHOOLS OUT THERE, WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE AFI TO SEND MY SECURITY OFFICERS TO?

At AFI Security Training Institute, we don’t play games with the system. We don’t just hand out a certificate to show that someone has been through a class when he’s done nothing more than just sit there, or worse yet, run a diploma mill where you pay a fee, get a certificate and walk out within minutes, without having sat through a class at all. Our course is a full 24 hour program as mandated by SORA, not 21 hours or 16 hours (or even less) as some lesser quality facilities may offer.

Our principals and chief instructors are probably already known to you through personal knowledge, working relationships, or professional and fraternal organizations, so you know our ability, integrity, ability and professionalism. We have decades of high level private sector experience, from supervising and training security officers during many years in this field. You, your clients and your officers all work in the private sector; shouldn’t your instructors? We know what you're looking for; we’ve been there.

Our instructors bring their industry-specific, real world experience to the classroom and impart private sector solutions to the real world problems security officers can expect to encounter. At AFI, we teach not just WHAT, but WHY. We view the security industry as a service industry with a CUSTOMER SERVICE EMPHASIS in our program of instruction.

Unlike other instructors who may hold classes in hotel meeting rooms or banquet rooms, we have a permanent base of operations. We¹ll still be here long after many current instructors let their certifications expire.

The training materials we hand out belong to the student to keep (unlike some instructors who take back the material at the end of the course – if they hand out any training material at all). We strongly believe that the material belongs to the student for further study and as a ready reference while he or she works. Let’s face it; wouldn’t you rather have your employee reading his SORA training book on post than a newspaper? Our training material becomes the foundation of a professional library for professional security officers, to be supplemented with your specific instructions, practices and procedures.

DO I HAVE TO SEND MY SECURITY OFFICERS TO YOUR LOCATION?
Not necessarily. If you have 10 or more security officers to be registered in one class, we can conduct training at your location. Additionally, if your staffing presents a scheduling challenge, instead of a 3 day/8 hour daily course, we can offer courses on a 4 day/6 hour per day basis, a 5 day/5 hour per day basis, or an 8 day/ 3 hour per day course for those officers who can’t easily be replaced and will be working in addition to taking the course.

DO I HAVE TO SEND A CHECK FOR EACH SECURITY OFFICER?
No, you can send one check or pay by credit card during the online registration process.

WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR QUALIFIED SECURITY OFFICERS. DO YOU HAVE A PLACEMENT SERVICE?
After a student who is not already employed passes our course, we will provide him or her with a reference to our client security companies which are hiring. We will also have a link to those companies in our Resources section.
