Security Guards Training

Security Guards are the first line of defense against crime. With unpredictable situations, and terror on the rise, the guards are required to gain some basic knowledge on how to react in emergency situations. Additionally, different sectors in the corporate and industry require guards to behave and react accordingly. Ironically with about 5 million people in the security industry, 1.3 million more than India’s police and armed forces combined, formal training to the Security guards has been missing till recent past.

India’s Private Security Agencies Regulation Act, 2005 (PSARA), was created to improve private security standards in the country by issuing licenses to security companies. It also sets minimum standards for security guards, such as 160 hours of training before deployment. Private Security Agencies Regulation Act, 2005 (PSARA) has made it obligatory for the Private security agencies to impart formal training to its guards force.
