The Only African American Guard Card Instructor in CT

Allen MoodyDid you know at the present time, it is believed that the State of Connecticut only has 1 Certified and Approved African American Security Guard Card Training Instructor out of 48, which are all male and all Caucasian.

Becoming a Security Guard Card Instructor requires at least 5 years of teaching experience or experience in the respective field.  The program is regulated by the State Police, Department of Public Safety and Protection.  The Guard Card course is an 8 hour class that covers several subjects which includes but is not limited to Basic First Aid, Search and Seizure and Public Safety Issues.  Upon successful completion of a 25 question multiple choice exam, the student is then certified.  Becoming certified is a prerequisite to obtaining a Guard Card from the CT Department of Public Safety and Protection.

I have been teaching this course both in the States of NY & CT.  However, mostly in the State of CT.  My courses are very interactive, energetic, lively and to the point.  The course provides the harsh realities of life and provides scenarios of life or death situations.  The course prepares every student to “think outside the box” and is delivered with a dose of swagger.    Although I have trained thousands upon thousands of students, in late 2008, is when I began having students provide a testimonial of their thoughts on my training course.  The reasoning behind the testimonials were simple.  I felt that my training was pretty unique, special and different from any other instructors providing the course.  This information was based upon verbal feedback I received after each and every class.  The feedback was not just from a high school graduate or college student looking for a job.  The feedback came from retired police officers and detectives, individuals who served in the military, correction officers and other law enforcement in were taken aback by the training, under the impression or assumption that the course would be a “fluke”.

What made me more aware that I brought something different is that  I would have the same students who would come back to me for a refresher course, would signing up for other courses I offered or would refer their friends or family members to my school.  It was then that I decided to have their words put  in print to help others looking for an honest and reputable place to become certified.  To view some of our testimonials, go to: http://thealmgroup.com/Guestbook.php

Since the Security industry is dominated by mostly minorities, I would like to draw more attention to my facility since I am new CT instructor, becoming certified in August, 2012.  Not only am I the only African American providing this training in CT, I am the cheapest and offer the training weekly, where most other facilities may only provide the training on Fridays or Tuesday.

I get gratification of knowing I was able to transition someone from the though of becoming a security guard to actually becoming supervisor, regional supervisor or even a police officer.
