Ryan joined RES/CIC Training in November 2020. He was previously working with guards at various LCBO retail stores teaching Use of Force and Managing of Resistive Behaviour. We are very excited to have Ryan on board as he is already making a huge impact in the betterment of our newly hired guards. We sat down with Ryan and asked him a few questions about his work history, passions, and heroes.
“I love the fact that I empower people to believe than can be successful in something they have never done before.”
- How long have you been involved in Security and what was your first job?
A: I have worked in the security industry for over 20 years.
My first Security job was a patrol guard at Centennial
College Progress Campus. It was a great experience as
it gave me the opportunity to see if this was the right
industry for me. I still think about that job fondly.
- What is your favourite part about training?
A: I love getting up up in front of a group of people and teaching. I also love the fact that I empower people to believe they can be successful in something they have never done before. Most people have never taken a course in understanding different levels of a crisis. It’s great to watch a person grow confident enough to handle those situations should they arise.
- What advice would you have for anyone considering a career in the Security Industry?
Be prepared to work hard, enjoy the grind, and experience the growth process. You can have a great career in the Security Industry if you are willing to put in the work.
