Assess. Plan. Act.

The APA Model was created for Security Guards. It was designed to give the Security Industry in Ontario a useable system of response and counter that anyone can work with. The system can be easily integrated into existing operating procedures and company policy because of its focus on the fundamentals of awareness, decision making theory, and physical action.

Don’t get caught on the wrong side of the law with self-defence.

There is a serious difference in learning self-defence from an organisation that teaches people “how to fight” compared to an organisation that put individuals in a legal position to justify their actions in court. Don’t get caught on the wrong side of the law with self-defence.

Redfield Group’s APA Model has been developed from the National Use of Force framework created by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police. This framework provides a model of Conflict Resolution that is applicable in any situation from a minor infraction to a violent encounter.

Security Guards in Ontario do not have any special provisions in the Use of Force or acceptable responses to violence unlike Police Officers, (Security guards are licensed citizens and not sworn Peace Officers). Therefore, the program is completely applicable to the everyday citizen.

The Redfield Group learning model uses an online component combined with in-class lessons. Some theory and introduction material is covered before the student arrives for class by pre-reading a summary of covered topics. This allows the student to receive the maximum benefit from the instructor, as they can formulate questions and prepare for the course ahead of time.

Another security guard company offering mumbo jumbo to the uneducated masses of wannabe Ninjas, these guys, to a man all offer their “expertise” but never provided details on the expert who will provide the training. Just another flash in pan group making cash off kids.

Don't be so quick to judge. I just went to their website and I see that this advanced use of force training is a whole two days, thats sixteen hours of training!!!
Think of how prepared you would be for your first hand on incident with that many hours of training. You would truly be a force to be reckoned with.

Plus I read somewhere that you don’t want to get caught on the wrong side of the law with self-defence.

I think 16 hrs was the amount of time we spent on how to write reports on use of force incidents....

And they are important, as they (and you) will be judged by them for days on end.

The ministry is also making regulations regarding uof. Currently there are no requirements, so don't fall for it. Your employer will give you training if you are required to physically intervene. Who's to say that this training will be accepted by the ministry once the new regs will be implemented
