An agent licence may be issued to a person who does not meet the training requirements provided for in section 1 where the person’s level of knowledge and skills is equivalent to the training required.
In assessing the training equivalence, the Bureau de la sécurité privée takes the following factors into account, among other things:
diplomas obtained in relevant or related fields;
the type of courses taken, course content and marks obtained;
training periods and other learning activities completed; and
the type and length of relevant experience.

No training is required from the immediate superior of a natural person who carries on a private security activity if the immediate superior does not carry on such an activity.
O.C. 572-2010, s. 3
A person who, on 22 July 2010, carries on a private security activity for which an agent licence is required under the Act is not subject to the training requirements in section 1 to obtain a licence of the appropriate class as long as the licence is regularly renewed.
