Manitoba Security Guard Training Program

Who should register

You have chosen to become a security guard in Manitoba. You need to know the basics so that you can work safely and carry out your duties in a professional way. The law in Manitoba says that you must receive at least 40 hours of training. This course covers all the important areas needed for this basic training. It was designed to help you pass the provincial exam and earn your security guard certificate.

Before the content of each unit you will find:

  • a list of the objectives for the unit. These are the main things that you will learn in the unit.
  • a pre-test so you can see how much you already know about the material in the unit.
  • a list of some of the more difficult words in the unit and an exercise to practice the words.
  • a study tip.
  • an outline of what’s coming up in the unit.
  • In the middle of the unit there are
  • check ups so you can see how well you have learned the material in the unit.

At the end of each unit you will find:

  • a review of the important points from the unit.
  • a test-taking tip.
  • a practice test on the material from the unit. The tests are set up in the same style as
  • the provincial exam
