At Cascade Security, we believe security training and continuous improvement is critical to provide superior security services and attract and retain the best officers, technicians and staff.

From initial DPSST  Unarmed Security certification to refresher training, best practices, ethics, management skills and advanced training courses, our certified professional instructors and facilitators use relevant scenarios and interactive techniques to prepare participants to handle real life situations.

DPSST provides the basic training materials.  At CSI, we train beyond the basics and focus on practical application, beyond textbook training and lectures that only “teach to the test.”   With student interaction and real life scenarios, we provide students with enough knowledge to understand what will be expected when they begin or continue their security career. Students new to Oregon with security experience also share their past experiences so we can talk about best practices.  Security guard training and certifications do not translate to Oregon security certification.
