Security Training and Education
SMART Security Pros offers courses for individuals who are looking for work in the security industry, as well as corporate training for security companies that want standard training and testing for all of their personnel.
The ownership of SMART Security Pros as well as all of the training instructors are retired or active police officers. Having worked with local, state and federal agencies as police officers and agents gives them a unique perspective and excellent background in training.
Why Security Training?
After years of operating a security guard company, and decades in law enforcement, we noted that too many security officers were being utilized in the marketplace without having proper training. In 2016 our training division was established to provide standardized security training to security providers, corporations, and individuals in the Washington D.C. metro area. Bill Gleason, a well-respected and accomplished trainer in the law enforcement community, is the Director of Training, bringing more than 29 years of experience.
SMART Security Pros’ security trainers have decades of combined experience in law enforcement and training. Because most are active or recently retired officers, they have unique perspective and undeniable ability to train security personnel.

Jumpstart Your Security and Protection Career

Not all security companies offer training, but most are reluctant to hire you unless you have had training or experience. Our security guard training courses are designed to give you a leg up on the competition. Our beginner courses will give you the foundation you need to get started. Our advanced courses help experienced security personnel keep up to date on new procedures, policies and equipment.
Customized Guard Company Security Training
Having security guards on-site is one thing; having effectively trained security personnel is another.
Highly trained, effective, professional security officers protect your property as well as your employees. We provide security training for organizations throughout the metro D.C. area. Because our program is based upon law enforcement training and is taught by current law enforcement officers, SMART Security Pros training far exceeds the industry standard.

Every corporation needs to think about the safety and security of its employees and customers. Training your employees on the proper reaction and response to a critical situation could mean the difference between life and death. We can properly prepare your team for everything from a disgruntled irrational employee up to an active shooter situation.
