Our Testimonials...

"I recently had the privilege to take the Advanced Security Training course with Mr. Glen Moffat. It (A.S.T) is an excellent step in the right direction for the security industry in British Columbia. Even so; it would not have been nearly as good if it was not presented so well by him. He showed detail in the presentation of the handcuffing and all physical control aspects.

Taking the time to show proper techniques and critiquing as needed. In addition to making sure everyone had an equal learning opportunity and truly understood the material in a safe and controlled manner. I would recommend Mr. Moffat as an instructor to any company; or individual, that is looking for a serious and well presented course."

Sukhjinder Singh Takhar
Security Supervisor

"When I signed up for AST I didn't know what to expect. I certainly wasn't expecting the in-depth, intensive training I received from Glen. Although I felt like I had been through a meat grinder by the end, it was more than worth it for the knowledge and experience gained through my time there.

Most notably would be how I feel on the field now. With no doubt, I am 100% more confident with the skills I've taken home from AST. I would recommend this course to anyone, provided they are serious about the security field."

"I recently completed the Advanced Security Training program as conducted by Mr. Moffat and was immensely satisfied with the entire program. Mr. Moffat's teaching style was supportive and efficient. His obvious devotion to the content, and his students was apparent in every moment I spent in his class. I felt that I took away more than I might have expected from most traditional instructors, and can only thank Mr. Moffat for his personal attention which allowed me to succeed. At no point was anyone in our class under-tutored, or left in the dark. It seemed that Mr. Moffat was able to precisely identify each student's individual needs and learning styles, tailoring the content delivery to each.

Without reservation I would recommend Glen Moffat and his training agency to anyone who desires the most from their educational experiences."

I just wanted to tell you how much i enjoyed the course, and last night I encountered an aggressive shoplifter and I can't tell you how much more confident I was when I made the arrest. I used techniques learned in the course and it was just like you said in that moment you think back to the most basic training and all of those skills helped me so much. Just knowing that as I was approaching made me feel so much more confident, I didn't realize how huge it would be until the next arrest after the course.

I really enjoyed taking this class.  The instructor absolutely made the class enjoyable and informative.  He imparted practical knowledge at the skills based on his knowledge and experience of the techniques and skills taught in this course.  I would absolutely recommend this course and this instructor to anyone remotely curious about the security industry.

Thanks again for the great course that you provide at a Moffat It was a privilege to gain knowledge from your years experience. I have taken many courses over the years, most recently the Danger Tree Wildfire course at Vancouver Island University which like your course deals with a potentially very dangerous profession. When I completed the V.I.U. course however I felt that the course did not convey the extreme dangers of the profession. The students who were young and skilled at writing written exams easily passing while my partner a Finnish man one of the greatest Wildfire fallers I have ever met failed the course because of his lack of English writing skills. He said at the time the certification process in many professions focuses to much on being book smart. This is where the course you provided is far superior because you conveyed on us so much more real world experience. The stories you told of your personal hard earned experiences is so much superior to transferring knowledge to students than just the written text. That combined with the scenario training makes your course one of the best I have seen and I'm not blowing smoke. You are providing the Security Industry with the upgrade in professionalism that it greatly needs as it moves forward. Thanks again I would appreciate any contact numbers that you can provide. All the best to you and your family.

We had the honour of taking the AST course with Glen in Parksville as a group. Six of us from Allied Universal (previously Source Security) had heard about Glen and he came highly recommended from other coworkers that have trained with him in the past so we wanted the same experience. Glen did deliver.

There was the six of us coworkers, plus two other students in the class and he was able to meet each one of us at our needs. Knowing that some students learn better by seeing, some by doing, others by listening, Glen made sure to cover all bases. This to me is a sign of a great teacher.

Glen made sure to pay attention to various physical needs in the class to ensure that there would be no injury on his watch. We were sore but in a good way. We worked and trained hard and he made sure we were all safe and well taken care of. Perfect practice makes perfect!

I would definitely train with Glen again and plan to on a regular basis. In this line of work it is important to stay sharp on skills not only for the security of an area but for safety of yourself and the patrons you might be dealing with. It was great that Glen had previous class mates that are well seasoned in the profession join us on the physical training days. It gave us a sense of hands-on information that we might not have gotten elsewhere.

I look forward to training with Glen again and would recommend him to anyone thinking of taking either their BST or AST training for security.

Thanks again Glen! Every word was true!

Fantastic course! As someone who is learning these techniques for the first time, I had fun and learned a lot. Thank you!


Glen is a really amazing teacher with lots of skills & knowledge


Glen is a superb instructor, drawing in years of experience in law enforcement. I have known Glen for years, and his passion and comitment to the people in the class s unparalleled.


It was a pleasure having such a knowledgabl, and experience instructor demonstrate each of the techniques. Glen was willing to break down each step to help undertand the movements properly and safely, to ensure nobody in class got injured as well as any future subjects.


Glen is an excellent teacher and takes the time to go over any problems


Glen is a terrific instructor teaching a more realistic version of AST. Glen has inspired amny of his students to further their own commitment to safety and security.


I know people have to retire but I hope Glen is still teaching AST in three years from now so I can recertify again. Glen is a great instructor.


Glen was great! Lots of passion and cares about people ans safety.


Great instructor, don't retire!
