Workplace experience

In Year 2, you’ll take part in unpaid field placements in an industry-related private or public organization (in areas such as investigation, insurance, resource protection, loss prevention, physical security, or public safety). Some placements require shift work and/or travel to the worksite so you may need a driver’s licence and transportation.

Acquire a professional licence

After successful completion of the first semester, you can apply for a training completion number, which will make you eligible to be tested, at your own expense, for the provincially regulated licences to be a private investigator and security professional (the Dual Licence). Candidates for the Dual Licence must complete Emergency First Aid and CPR ‘C’ training with a St. John Ambulance certified instructor or with a first aid trainer approved by the WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board) to comply with the provincial licences and program placement requirements.
