Welcome to Security Training Center® News! This newsletter is part of our continuing education program, offered free to our students. Twice each month subscribers receive links to relevant and interesting articles pertaining to the private security industry. Every article will have some educational value, be it changes in security best practices, case studies with lessons to be learned, or success stories. Security Training Center's goal is to make our students the best-informed and most current security officers in the industry.

Noon to 6pm

Join us and local guard employers for a job fair and open house at our Camarillo facility. Drop by and learn about jobs in Ventura county. Be certain to bring several copies of your resume to give to prospective employers.


A great resume can open doors while a poor resume will shut them. We will run a free resume building workshop at 2:00pm to help open those doors.

We are just off the 101 Freeway, adjacent to the airport. Use the stairs on the front of the building, facing Wood Road.

DUTY TIP:  In California, tear gas and other chemical agents commonly used in the security professions may only be used after the proper training and certificate have been attained.
