Yes. Many people do so and in a variety of ways. Here are some examples:
Blended-Learning: Using both the Lecturing Kit with the NCPS Bundled option you may use the Lecturing Kit to teach the bulk of the class, and then incorporate some NCPS lessons here and there to give yourself some rest or let the NCPS present the topics you don't enjoy teaching.
Mix-Presentation: Using both the Lecturing Kit with the NCPS Bundled option you may use the NCPS on mute mode and navigate through the slides, having the students read them out-loud and using notes from your Lecturing Kit to exemplify what is taught. That allows you to skip slides and keep the class more interactive.
Double-Time Class: For whatever reason, there will be students who miss classes. Regardless which media you used to initially teach the student, using the NCPS you have the ability to load the lessons on separate computers and have the student make up the missed lessons on a separate computer with earphones at the back of the class while you teach your normal class. If you have the Online Kit the student can even make up the class online on his phone or computer.
No it is not. However it very much works like a MS/PowerPoint in the sense that you can navigate the slides freely (with the added luxury of a navigation menu that allows you to jump straight to a specific slide or topic without having to scroll through all the other slides) but you will not be able to edit the content or move the slides as you would in a typical MS/PowerPoint.
Possibly, buy why would you risk it?
Depending on the extent and amount of content you extract from our materials, you may be in violation of copyright laws. Copyrighted materials are subject to what is called “Fair Use”. Using small portions here and there from our copyrighted materials, such as a paragraph, is allowable under the 'Fair-Use'.
But creating a MS/PowerPoint that mirrors our program and/or uses extensive sections of our copyrighted materials is not protected by 'Fair Use' and thus constitutes a copyright violation. It will jeopardize your licensing as an entity/agency/school training professionals to protect their clients from liability and theft. Your best course of action is to save time and use the NCPS Kit, which works just as a MS/PowerPoint and has many additional benefits.
Yes! All kits are customized with your company logo and name. Sometimes, it is printed in the corner of the materials, sometimes it is watermarked, sometimes your logo is at the center of the document such as in the certificate. Your input on your desired look must be made known prior to printing.
Even the student manuals can be customized with your logo on the cover and a foreword you provide by ordering a minimum of 25 student manuals on your first order. After that you can order them by 5 at a time like the non-customized manuals, and always at a 40% discount for resale.
For the States for which we publish the relevant laws and statutes as part of the books, we update material when there is a significant law change. We also update all impacted documents including exams, if applicable. Approximately once a year we review and update as necessary.
We update kits based on certain situations. For example in 2019 we added content that relates to active shooter preparedness in response to the 2018 school shootings. We also added content regarding profiling and other relevant information to help prepare guards with the most relevant type of threats as new threats emerge. When the Florida Division of Licensing overhauled the curriculum in June 2019, we redid the entire program to match the new requirements. As a benefit to you, we work with the Division so they will automatically approve the schools we inform them are adopting our lesson plans.
If you use the NCPS or Online Kit you don't need anything else.
If you use the Lecturing Kit, and depending on how you use it, you may need replacement student manuals as they become worn or stolen. You may decide to replace books that you offer to students for purchase, in order to generate extra income.
Replacing a lost M-Disc cost $29, plus shipping.
Replacing the Thumb-Drive with all your files is $69.
Replacing your entire lecturing kit requires a new purchase of the whole kit.
From 2014 to July 2019, we provided non-contractual Courtesy & Complimentary Updates to our clients for up to two years from date of purchase. To this day we honor this Courtesy & Complimentary Update with all our clients who purchased their kit prior to July 2019.
Currently, we no longer offer clients to buy maintenance plans. Instead, when changes occur in a program we manage, we will sell updates that will be priced based on the complexity of the changes. If it is just a chapter or a few pages it will be inexpensive. If the entire kit has to be redone, we will provide a discounted price to existing clients in good standing who are not under a Maintenance Plan or the Courtesy & Complimentary Updates.
Yes! Call or email us the detail of your State’s required curriculum and time requirement, and in most instances we can build the course for your State.
As of now we have not found a State which requirements contradict SecuriStart's standard. Your State may require additional training regarding laws specific to the State.
For example, Florida licensees do not possess power of arrest, only to detain, while California and Georgia give power of arrest. You must at least know the laws of your State or see if we have a Kit specifically made for your State that include its laws.
The NCPS and the Lecturing Kits come with soft copies of all the materials you need to reprint. You can print them yourself or have them printed by a print shop.
The Online kit has a download feature that allows you to download certain documents. The rest is all web-based. Exams are taken online and thus the record stays online. You may want to print out and keep a hard copy of it.
Yes. When you initially purchase your kit we give you the option to get additional kits (same school) at a discounted price. You can get up to 4 additional kits, each with almost 66% DISCOUNT on each kit. If you need a second kit because you are expanding and creating new locations we will create entire new kits (certificates, registration, etc.) with the proper new address and school license at a 50% discount, plus shipping.
There are two independently accredited credentials that schools and instructors may use to help their students get more recognition out of their training.
CPSS stands for Certified Private Security Specialist.
It is achieved by having the student complete the CPSS online examination (158 questions)
CPSE stands for Certified Private Security Expert. It is achieved by having the student complete the CPSE online examination (158 questions) and documenting proof of having in excess of 3 years of professional and/or licensed full-time private security experience.
Here are the steps:
This is your opportunity to dominate your market by using Securi-Start's credentials: CPSS (Certified Private Security Specialist) and CPSE (Certified Private Security Expert) as a means to give a credential to individuals who want to be recognized as professionals and to agencies that are trying to establish themselves as credible. You can do so easily using our 50-State kit and registering your students to Securi-Start National Database for a nominal fee per student.
1. You can ONLY use the NCPS at a single school location, or if you travel to teach, you may use it at any location - but only one location at a time.
2. If you teach at two or more locations that have different license numbers, each location must purchase a NCPS.
3. Remote learning is not allowed. This includes enabling distance learning by giving remote access to the course on your computers or by loading it in such a way that the courses can be taken remotely.
We prosecute for copyright violators!
