ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the importance of quality over quantity in training certification. He argues that security industry has focused on the quantitative details, like classroom hours and trainer requirements, rather than creating a mechanism that will qualitatively measure the competency of security officers. He suggests that the training programs should be more vigorous in content that would better prepare the security officers for their duties.
