In-class Training Program
Marshal Security’s security guard training program combines the traditional classroom training with the online web based training. This innovative method reduces the student’s requirement to be present in the class for full 40 hours. Using this method, the student is given training in a traditional classroom environment. However, he/she is required to complete the assignments and quizzes online. Course Instructions
The training program works as below:
- Upon registration, the student is given a user id on Marshal Security’s website. This allows a student to get access to all the study materials on the website right from the day one.
- The student is scheduled for a class and then he/she is given training in a traditional classroom environment. During training, all the important topics of the course are covered and discussed in a class.
- The course assignments and quizzes are given to students as a homework to complete online. The students sends the completed assignments back to the instructor for review and grading.

- a student can take the test either in practice test mode or a mock test mode. In practice test mode, a student will be able to see the correct and incorrect answers just after answering any question; while in a mock test mode, the correct and incorrect answers will be graded and shown only after the completion of the test.
- every time a student attempts a test, the question order of a test will change randomly. This way, the student gets more learning as he/she will not be able to memorize the question order and the answers.
- In addition to practice tests, the student can also access the class notes and the video lectures, in case he/she wish to revise the course.
- Somewhere during the course, the student will have to complete a requirement of Emergency First Aid & CPR training. This is in-class training, and is offered every week.
