Training & Professional Development

Whelan views private security officer training as one of the most critical elements of a successful security program and fundamental to the performance of professional security officers. We believe that a great career means having a culture that values advancement from within and provides all of the tools and training required to help our employees thrive and succeed.

Our comprehensive 10-Star Training and Development Program is provided through our Whelan Academy of Professional Development and includes a combination of classroom and on-site training, as well as interactive online learning tools and self-study modules. All encompassing, these training programs exceed the recommendations established in the Private Security Officer Selection and Training Guideline (ASIS GDL PSO – 2010) published by ASIS International, the preeminent organization within the security industry.
