Why Settle For Poor Training?
Why drive miles through traffic, fighting through construction on the expressway, or try to find someone to give you a ride, only to get to a “classroom” with sticky floors, chairs that are older than you, and handouts copied so much that they are almost unreadable? Why burn expensive gas, only to sit in class and watch a videotape made in the 80’s, on a VCR made in the 70’s? Why spend your hard-earned money listening to someone “teach”, who has never stood a post, arrested a suspect, testified in court, or written an actual report? At the end of such a “training” course, what will you really know how to do?
There Is A Better Way…
For those who care about their security career, there is a better way. Come to an academy where the student comes first. Centrally located in Chicago, we are easily reachable through every CTA train line in the city. Instead of traveling long distances to an unfamiliar area, that may not be safe, come and study in the heart of the city.
Why burn through a tankful of gas, when you can be at our academy and home each day for a few bucks? Attend courses in an environment that helps you to be your best. No creaky floors or missing tiles on our floors, come and learn in classroom settings with central heating and air, and the latest in audiovisual teaching aids. Learn from instructors that have real-world experience that you can learn from. Speak to true professionals that have “been there” and “done that” and can pass that knowledge on to you.
You’ll Need A Job Too! We Can Help…
We won’t just take your money and run, we will help you get started. Our Referral Program is designed to be a resource for security and investigative agencies in Chicago, to provide qualified persons for job openings. To you, this means that as a graduate of one of our courses, if you wish, you will be added to our Referral Program, to be contacted by licensed agencies looking for people with the skills you will have. Although not a guarantee of employment, it is a good step in the right direction. Other training organizations do not provide this service. With us, you definitely get more for your money!
You’ll Graduate With Goodies!
Everybody likes stuff. When you graduate from any of our programs, you will have a wealth of knowledge between your ears, and also in your hands. We provide our students, who wish to purchase one, with comprehensive training manuals. This is important, because questions pop up all the time, you want to have the tools and the answers to deal with them when they do. Our training binders are legendary for the wealth of knowledge they posses. Hey! Register online now, and save yourself a seat.
It’s Too Easy To Be Cheesy!
There are organizations that will take your money, show you a videotape on report writing, give you a Certificate, and push you out the door. That’s not training – that’s an embarrassment. It is also dangerous for those who “graduate” from such places and go into the workforce. Don’t take risks with your career, start with good, solid training that will give you a advantage. It really is true, you get what you pay for! Our promise to you, is that, upon successful completion of our courses, you will be fully trained in that subject matter. You will know what to do, and how to do it.
When You Are Going For That Promotion
And you need that edge to put you ahead, you need to be here. Our training courses of advanced subjects can provide you with the edge you need. In addition, many good jobs require additional specialized training, in addition to the basic state-required training. Unlike many other “schools”, we provide that training, along with additional resources to help you develop your career. Some of our courses are so specialized, that students from other states travel in to take them
Illinois Finally Has Concealed Carry...
So, what happens next?
We wait for the Illinois State Police to do two things:
A. Publish its list of certified firearms instructors. We cannot, by law now, accept registrations for the IL CCW course until the list comes out and we are on it (we will be, of course).
B. List the courses that they will accept towards the training requirement.
Until those two things happen, we cannot offer registration for any Illinois CCW Course, because now the law is in effect. This also means that any firearms instructor that claims to be teaching an "approved course" between now and when A and B happen, is not telling you the truth.
What About The Chicago Firearm Permit Program?
The Chicago Police Gun Registration Section has informed us that they will no longer process Chicago Firearm Permits or renewals for any firearms.
