How to Answer
Walk the interviewer through any security training that you may have received from a previous security services position. Your coursework may be on your resume; however, the interviewer is not asking for another bulleted list. They want you to bring the training to life for them. Discuss which training you excelled in, which coursework was your favorite, or how you finished top of the class!

If you are new to your career and without any formal training, that is okay too! Avoid leading with the negative (I don't have...) and, instead, lead with the positive and mention how you have taken the initiative to self-teach online for instance.

Question 5 of 30

How to Answer
For reasons that you are already aware, anyone hired for a security services position needs to comply with a robust vetting process. The hiring authorities at Paladin Security must be very cautious on who they hire; for the safety of themselves, their clients, and the general public.

As a security professional, you will be working with the public and with vulnerable individuals. Assure the interviewer that you are most willing to comply with any form of background check they require. If possible, bring a copy of a recent police background check with you to your interview. Although this action will not be everything the interviewer needs for your file, this will show initiative.
