Why Choose Security Global Security Group?

A number of other schools are approved to teach the 8 Hour Security Guard Training Pre-Assignment courses so why choose GSG?  Quite simply it is our level of instruction.  Our school director was an instructor at the DEA/FBI Academy located in Quantico, Virginia and all of our training personnel are professionals.  Even if other schools offer lower fees, their instructors cannot match the quality of Global Security Group’s instructors. Our training facility is conveniently located in midtown New York across the street from Penn Station and easily accessible by multiple trains and buses.
