Officer Training

Many companies boast of the training their officers receive, but few companies actually provide practical training for its security officers. Training programs can only be measured by the results of the efforts exerted in their implementation, and how those results prove to be of value to our clients.

Ameritex draws on industry experts and proven programs to develop what we believe to be the best program in the area. New Security Officers begin their studies in the classroom with training films complete with testing, and once assigned to a facility, every officer continues to learn throughout their career; in-services field manuals, review films, and updates. The training and learning never ends!

Ameritex places great value in its training concepts and draws on proven programs to help the development of our officers and staff. We believe that we could reinvent the wheel and produce in-house training programs, but with the constant changes in security best practices we believe we can be more flexible by using training materials from industry experts.


The following topics are commonly used for all non-experienced new hired staff:

  • Basic Orientation
  • Fire Prevention
  • Communications & Reports
