(ABST) Alberta Basic Security Training  Course

The Canadian Criminal Justice Academy (CCJA) in partnership with Alberta Justice & Solicitor General is proud to present the Alberta Basic Security Training (ABST) training course. This 40-hour ABST course as delivered by the instructors of CCJA, is consistent with the training objectives set out by the Government of Alberta. This course will enable you to obtain your license to work as a security guard in a wide variety of industries.

Your CCJA team are educators, knowledgeable, highly motivated, and with practical experience to provide you with the information to be successful in your first of many professional development courses and workshops. We DO NOT teach you just to pass an exam. We facilitate so that you LEARN what is required to work in security, be part of a team, and protect the assets required of our businesses across this great province. And you will discover that our support will continue long after your course is finished. CCJA also provides opportunities with advanced training courses, professional coaching, resume and interview preparation, and other professional development opportunities.

Important note: There is a minimum required number of Candidates to run the course. If the college does not reach the minimum required number of 10, the total deposit/full payment will be refunded. You can also choose to hold a seat at our next course.
