Security training for K-12 and Community Colleges

Helping Make Safer Schools

Schools should be a safe place for students.  However, we know that security risks exist on school campuses that need to be prepared for in order to prevent, de-escalate or properly handle.

GuardsLink, a leading provider of online security training, is here to assist schools, from elementary through the community college level, remain compliant and ensure consistent and quality training to those in a security role. You can assign the appropriate training to individuals, monitor and track training completion, and securely maintain compliant certificates of completions, all from within the GuardsLink training platform.

Our focus is to better prepare security personnel on campuses, and to that end, GuardsLink offers our School Security Training Course which was designed from the ground up to be fully compliant with California’s Senate Bill 1626 (SB1626).  This course is for any employee of a school district or community college who performs any type of school security function.
 
Important notice, the California law governing SB1626 is changing as of July 1, 2021.  Thereafter, all individuals in security roles, even those working 20 hours or less a week will be obligated to successfully complete the 24-hour School Security Training Course.  This is mandatory.
