Training

Industry Leading Programs Is Our Highest Priority

It is a recognized fact that training is a vital determinant in ensuring effective job performance. Therefore, training has always been of top concern and highest priority to Washington Professional Security Services!

Training Conducted By Executives & Managers

At Washington Professional Security Services, we have our own in-house training program, certified by the State of Missouri & Illinois. Every applicant is required to attend a pre-assignment training session and pass a 65 question examination prior to employment.

Training is conducted each week in our own classroom and consists of 24 hours of lectures by our Executives and managers including the President

The curriculum is comprised of the following subjects:
  • Administrative and Security Orientation
  • Legal Authority
    • Authority of the Security Officer
    • Elements and Mechanics of Arrest
    • Rules of Evidence
    • Search and Seizure
    • Protection of the Crime Scene
  • Self-Defense
Once the applicant has completed the entry level training, the results of his final examination will determine whether or not he will be hired. When he does become an employee, his performance is continually monitored and evaluated.
  • Company Policy and Procedures
  • Public Relations
  • Report Writing
  • Method of Patrol
  • Communications
  • Fire Prevention
  • Uniforms and Equipment
  • First Aid & CPR Certified (if required by contract)

Specific Training for Our Clients & Training for Supervisory Staff

While this pre-assignment training provides a basis, it is only the beginning. Like each client's requirements are unique, so much of the specific training must take place at the job site itself. Each new Security Officer is assigned to train with a member of our supervisory staff. The new Security Officer works with the trainer until he is proficient in the performance of his duties.

On-going Training

Ongoing training is also needed by personnel to develop additional skills, to acquire added knowledge, and to guard against complacency in job performance. Periodically, Washington Professional Security Services supervisors utilize "Training Task Sheets" to test the officers on their knowledge and execution of a specific duty. "Training Keys" dealing with a specific subject are routinely provided to all officers.

Training for Supervisory Staff

Supervisory and managerial employees also need job-related training if they are to have a positive influence on the personnel they direct. All Washington Professional Security Services supervisors attend in-house training classes on techniques of supervision and management, company regulations and policies, equipment maintenance, and specific duties. In addition, they are scheduled to attend supervisory training sessions at Associated Training and Security. This course covers such subjects as communication, delegation of tasks, basic supervision, line/staff concept, and maintaining records.

Before actual assignment, new supervisors are also trained on-the-job by accompanying experienced supervisors on several shifts. Ongoing training is provided during roll-call meetings and by "Training Keys" written especially for them.
