UPCOMING "TRAIN THE TRAINER" WORKSHOPS
In a effort to address the transition to the armored car training, the PPSB at its February 2013 meeting requested the PPS staff conduct "Trainer the Trainer" workshops at various locations throughout the state for the unarmed guard trainers who will be teaching the armored car course. The PPSB also decided that the current unarmed guard trainers will receive an endorsement indicating they have attended the "Train the Trainer" course. Trainers cannot conduct the armored car training until they have completed the trainer workshop. The workshops are scheduled to last approximately three (3) hours. The Board also voted to "grandfather" in all current security guards providing armored car service.
If you are interested in attending one of the training sessions you will need to e-mail Judy Pittman at email@example.com. You will receive a reply confirming your attendance.
