Congratulations to the Top 50 Security Guard Training Sites of 2012. Every effort was made to make this a fair and unbiased selection, based on a set of criteria determined even before nominations were accepted.
42,000+ subscribers to various martial arts newsletters were queried for security guard information website nominations. Research was also conducted by the Martial Arts Mastery staff to glean even more nominations of information-rich sites.
The initial list of 400+ nominations was trimmed down to a healthy 250. From there, the serious selection process began. Over a month later, and the list now rested at 125 worthwhile sites.
At this point, professional assistance was employed, to further narrow the list to the top 50. This list was turned back to Keith Pascal and a few other martial artists to be arranged into the final order.
Then the category-winner selection was made.
Take a look at this unbiased list of security guard training sites. We tried to include mega sites, mini websites, college programs, state sites, international sites, certification courses, job searches, and more. Our focus was on finding quality information in the security guard industry.
