    We do yearly firearms requalification and also are given several chances to practice with the firearm.Usually at least 2 days each season of the year. We recertify on freeze + p yearly (no we don't have be sprayed every time) We are given PPCT training on handcuffing and weapons retention and escort procedures. We do verbal judo training. We study the companies general outlook on business and security. We do shoot don't shoot on a lazer shot firearms simulator. We also do CPR and minor first aid training. That is all the security training that comes to mind. Then I have the training that the Hydro
    electric department gives every year. It lasts about 8 hours each time but it occurs at different times of the year. We study the plant and are trained about what to look for structurally both in the power house, the dam and on the dikes and all other areas. Oh and we get training on the camera system we use. They up grade fairly often and each time we get refresher and more training if it is really different than the last sytem or version. There is probably some I am not remembering right now but we do a good bit of training. We also work a lot of shifts. Rotate from evenings to nights. 7 day schedule 8hrs mon thru fri 12 hours on sat and sun. Then you get some days off unless someone else is sick or on vacation. I have already worked 324 hours overtime this year and will work more before the end of the year. I end up working alot but that time and a half is nice! Oh yeah, next year they are going offer us Spanish for LE/Security Officers. Many Hispanics have moved here over the last 10 or so years and I would like to be able to address them in their native tounge at least a little bit.

    Security Police Officer training is conducted by the Department of Energy.

    The only way that I know of to undergo this training is to be sent down to

    the Department of Energy Safeguards and Security Central Training Academy

    at the National Training Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since the

    United States Bureau of Reclamation doesn't have it's own training

    academy, my Security Force is sent through training with the Nuclear

    Security Forces.

    Courses Taken...

    The preliminary training required for my position is Security Police Officer

    I and Security Police Officer II. We also undergo O.C. testing, and various

    minor computer courses. I recently requested access to Security Police

    Officer III, but my Sgt., Lt., and Cpt. decided that I should undergo the Basic

    Instructor Training first. Don't get me wrong... any training is good

    training, but I would've rather had further combat training. I've also just

    taken a course called Tactical Aid and Awareness.

    CPR, First Aid, we also have an intensive online course training covering all of our security fields, corporate, cash handling, dog partners and consulting. Of course we do go through the standard Professional Security Training Network (PSTN) tapes.

    Along with that our officers do a 10 question quiz a week, on our facilities standard operating procedures.

    The Montreal Fire Department gives a free day long course to employees. The first half is theory. The 2nd is hands on use of fire extinguishers. They also have a course for companies with internal equipped fire brigades on the use of SCBA.

    The only real stuff the place I work offers, beyond the initial three-week training, is a yearly 40 hour refresher course on DT, OC and baton, first aid/CPR/AED, firearms (2 days, 2 shoots for qual), and related paperwork things. It's supposed to be 40 hours, 5 eights, but it seems to run 5 nines or tens.

    First Aid, CPR, AED and firearms qualification are covered. Our old Director of Security was willing to run with a skeleton crew in the off season. If we wanted to get relevant training on our dime, he would let us go, up to a week, with pay. That was sweet. No more.

    We are offered a defensive tactics class (not a really good one IMO, but its mandatory) its call "PRO-Act" it goes over how to defend yourself from a patient attacking you and how to do a "Carry-down" or a restraint on a patient.

    We are offered CPR-FA-AED

    Then we are offered a ton of courses to be taken on www.essentiallearning.net but I dont know what they are as I havent taken any of them yet.

    Quebec law reqiuires companies to spend 1% of their profit on training their staff.

    The Quebec CSST (Workmen's Compensation Board) pays the cost of first aid courses.
