Frequently Asked Questions

What is required to become a security guard?

Security guards must be licensed in Alberta and meet the basic licensing requirements, including an accredited 40-hour training course and a passing score on the SSIA exam.

How do I register to take the provincial licensing exam?

After completing the mandatory training course, applicants can contact the PSKN Support Desk to register for the online exam, which is administered by a certified proctor at many locations in Alberta.

Is there a fee to take the exam?

The exam fee is included in the training course registration cost, but each additional exam attempt costs $60.

Do I need to provide proof of training and exam completion with my Guardmore application?

The Alberta Registrar keeps a record of your training and licensing exam status on file, so PSKN will automatically submit your results.

How long does it take to receive a security service license?

On average, applications are processed within six to eight weeks, but it may depend on the volume of applicants. You can call the Security Programs department at 1-877-462-0791 for more information about your application status.

Can I still be a security guard if I have a criminal record?

You may still be able to obtain a license, but the decision is made by the Solicitor General. Each case is considered individually, so you can apply for consideration.
