All employees at Security Central are bonded by the state of North Carolina and other states across the country. Bonding includes a complete fingerprint and criminal record search. All this information is obtained and sent to the Alarm Licensing Board where it is processed by the SBI. The licensing board then reviews the findings and must approve all applicants before anyone is allowed to begin training at our facility. Any offenses other than traffic violations prohibit employment with our company. After potential employees have successfully passed the bonding process, they are subjected to drug screening tests. All employees are randomly tested for drugs during their employment at Security Central.
All Security Central operators are trained by our in-house instructor, who is certified by the Security Industry Association (SIA) and Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International, Inc. (APCO) (APCO certifies 911 dispatchers). During the first four weeks of training new operators spend 160 hours at our on-site training facility. They have access to a simulated central station, set up on a separate computer system, where each new operator practices his or her skills. Our training facility provides valuable experience as the traffic flow, type of signal received, and calls are replicated from actual experiences in the central station. The fifth week of training, the operators are placed in the central station with a qualified, veteran operator for supervised hands-on experience. The final and sixth week of training the new operator is tested by the instructor to be certain all skills have been mastered. The level of service all operators are trained to offers our customers the best customer service and knowledge in an event.
Once a quarter, all central station supervisors and operators attend a mandatory refresher class. During each refresher, we review the latest technology at Security Central as well as review procedures and address any concerns.
Most importantly, you will find our security response team is prompt, friendly and courteous.
