Need your Saskatchewan Security Guard License? Security Guard Training Canada is pleased to present this government-approved Saskatchewan Security Guard course online.
Saskatchewan has a mandatory 40-hour training course called the Saskatchewan Justice Approved Security Guard Training Course that must be completed before being licensed. The Ministry of Justice in Saskatchewan does not provide the training directly but approves trainers who are authorized to deliver the program.
Saskatchewan is one of the few provinces in Canada where security guard licences are not issued to an individual but are issued to the employer licensing you to work for them.
These licences are NOT portable, meaning that your licence is restricted to allow you to ONLY work for the employer that you were employed with when the licence was issued.
You are not able to work for more than one company at a time and must renew your licence if you change employers.
