Individuals wishing to apply for a Security Guard license in Ontario must complete a Ministry identified basic training course.

NAHB is proud to be part of this initiative.  We are not only an identified training program with the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, but we are also a registered career college with the Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities.  We have been registered since 1979.

What does this mean for you? It means that upon graduation from our 40 hour Security Guard course, your information will be uploaded to the Ministry website which will then allow you to complete the Security Guard license requirements.  It also means that you will have the benefit of our over 30 years of experience in the field of education.
