Whether you’re a seasoned security professional or you’re looking for a security guard job in York, PA, and want to prepare before you apply, you’re in the right place. Here are 8 of the valuable skillsets our trainees attain during our comprehensive security training. 

1. Life-Saving Techniques

Among our most important courses, first aid training belongs on every resume since your security career revolves around protecting and serving others. Our certified CPR courses will prepare you to save both adults and pediatric individuals in an emergency. 

2. OCAT® Course

Our “Oleoresin Capsicum Aerosol Training” will teach you everything you need to know about utilizing pepper spray safely and appropriately. Pepper spray should never be used without the proper training, and our in-depth guide will prepare you to identify risks, safely deploy/utilize the canister effectively, and manage multiple threats with a focus on responsible use.

3. Professional Handcuffing 

Following completion of our PATH® (Practical and Tactical Handcuffing) course, you will have a working mastery of safe and effective handcuffing strategies. We will teach you how to position and cuff suspects efficiently, minimizing the risks to you and your clients while preventing injury to the individual being detained. 

4. Personal Protection Baton Tactics

PPBT® is among our most impactful tactical courses. Batons are an important tool in our threat management arsenal, and when utilized correctly, are just as effective (if not more so) than other armed interventions. We will teach you how to handle your baton like an expert, determine when force is appropriate, and improve the safety of you and your clients with every use. 

5. Personal Defense 

How can you protect your clients if you are incapacitated? Our hands-on personal defense training will prepare you with defense strategies that are utilized by successful military and police enforcement officers across the globe.

6. Avoid Civil Liabilities

In all of our training courses, we stress the importance of safety because a wrongful use of force can result in serious legal and life-threatening consequences. Whether you’re learning defense techniques or handcuffing, you will know exactly when it is appropriate to use force. 

7. Psychological Deescalation

At Sheepdog, we prioritize non-violent threat deterrence. We’ll teach you how to identify and resolve dangerous situations with proven behavior modification techniques and verbal threat deterrence to stop problems with the power of your voice. 

8. Crowd Control Tactics

While deterring a single threat may seem simple enough, your duties become complicated when dealing with larger crowds. We’ll teach you how to maintain a wider scope of vigilance, and prepare you with effective techniques to eliminate disruptive-crowd behavior with proven resolutions.
