The 3 steps to get your security guard license in Thunder Bay, Ontario are:
- Complete your security guard training from a Ministry approved security guard training provider either online or in-class. We are approved by the Ministry to offer online security guard training where students can login at anytime and there are no time limits in completing the course. We have trained students in Thunder Bay. You will also need to complete First Aid training through a WSIB approved provider such as the Red Cross. Only Emergency First Aid is required, which is 1 day compared to the 2 days of Standard First Aid. Once you complete the course and complete the First Aid you are issued a Training Completion Number (TCN). We have partners that offer the training at a discount just for our students.
- Using the Training Completion Number issued to you, you can now book the test with the Ministry. There are 60 Multiple Choice questions (MCQs). You have 75 minutes to complete the test. The passing score is 62% and there are no limits on the number of attempts. The test is taken at one of the Drive Test locations across Ontario, the same place where you complete your driving test.
- Once you pass your test, apply for your security guard license through Service Ontario. We suggest applying online for the quickest response. They will perform a criminal records check and you will declare any unpaid fines and parking tickets. Not all criminal offences prevent you from getting your license, see the list of criminal offenses.
