Certificate in Security
Orangeburg Calhoun Technical College

Program Details

The online Certificate in Security program teaches students to patrol and inspect property to protect against fire, theft, vandalism, and illegal entry while also maintaining professionalism.  The curriculum prepares students for careers in a wide variety of areas, each with its own set of duties and expectations.  You will learn to protect people, records, merchandise, money, and equipment in office buildings, banks, hospitals, and stores, while in department stores you will need to learn to act as an undercover detective to deter and detect theft by customers or store employees.  In addition to these activities, students working at transportation facilities must also screen passengers and visitors for weapons, explosives, and other contraband, and insure nothing is stolen while being loaded and unloaded.
