Our Instructors and course lesson plans are approved and Certified by the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS). Our Students are trained to a 21st Century standard for the 21st Century Challenges. “Old School” is somebody else’s school, not Security Consultants Training Academy. Our students are always trained in a pleasant, fun and comfortable environment. Students are always welcome to relax, have a soft drink or snack during our classes. We also realize that schedules can be a challenge, especially in the security field; if you are making a real effort to get to class on time, we will work with you. We also offer classes at night and on weekends upon request.
We simply insure that, upon satisfactory completion of our offered courses and a submission of an approved application to DCJS, you will be qualified to work with any licensed Private Security agency in Virginia. We even fill out the DCJS paperwork for you, fingerprints and all, no extra charge.
Security Consultants, Inc. has quietly been a leader in the training business since 1958. We have always been dedicated to provide the most current and comprehensive training available in the Security and Investigative professions. We have always had a strict “Non-compete No Recruit” policy. Our long-term clients know this and our new clients can rest assured that your quality Officers will be trained in a comfortable, pleasant, pressure free environment. Potential students and Security Company Executives are always welcome to drop by and audit our classes at any time. So compare us to the other schools, ask the Officers on the beat where they train and come join us for your next training session.
