I recently completed the five week Advanced Security Officer Course with Security Professional Development Institute and it was a very educational experience. I have been in the security field for 9 years and didn't feel like I was advancing in my career. I was hesitant about becoming and armed officer because of the liability that comes with carrying a firearm. This course taught me about the responsibility of carrying a firearm and also firearm safety. The instructor is very knowledgeable and brings a wealth of law enforcement, military and private security experience. I highly recommend SPDI to anyone looking to pursue a career in the security industry.
