I am currently working towards my professional doctorate.  My research project is a study of security practitioners’ perspectives of the Alberta Basic Security Training (ABST) program and if it prepares trainees to complete their duties in the security industry.  Part of my research focuses on comparing the ABST with 35 other public and private training programs from around the world.  My goal is to evaluate its content to determine if it provides the appropriate introduction to the industry.  The research also involves the opinions of security officers, managers and trainers of the ABST as to whether security personnel given the appropriate skills to work at an effective level when they are assigned to their first worksite.
