Security Personnel Training | Classroom

MKDS Training offers complete, on-site screening checkpoint classroom training (initial and recurrent). All training is written in a detailed lesson plan format which includes classroom and hands-on, practical application. These classroom courses are interactive and include testing.

 

Our subject matter experts will provide in-house training, or will host courses at MKDS Training HQ in Montreal. They begin any program by surveying the checkpoint facility and assessing the instruments. Class sizes are divided into small sessions to allow for an effective teacher student ratio. Students visually examine 100% accurate replications of threats and obtain first-hand experience identifying threats in X-Ray Images of varying difficulties. Our trainers will demonstrate the ins and outs of every type of threat and customize course content to any facility's prohibited items. We can also customize the inert training aids to perfectly coordinate with any organization's training requirements.
