ALBERTA BASIC SECURITY TRAINING (ABST)
The solicitor general and public security office regulates the security industry in Alberta, including licensing and compliance. Alberta Justice is responsible, on behalf of the Registrar, for the development and maintenance of training standards, and the administration of Security Training under the Security Services and private investigators Act. This includes the administration of monitored examinations for security courses, the inspection and quality control of training academies and approved security instructors and examination proctors.
ABST UPDATE: Although Sentinel is a certified training agent for the solicitor generals ABST program, we are currently not teaching the course. The ABST training is mandatory for licensing and employment.
