"The quality of this learning course is unmatched. This course provides everything you need to pass the Security test and more. If it wasn't for this course I would not have got the e-mail today saying I am now a licensed security guard. Not only is this course very user-friendly and easy to use, my mentor, Brian, answered all my questions I had with almost immediate responses even at ridiculous hours. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to get into the security industry."- Andy M
