Purdue Global Partners With Securitas Security Services

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Securitas Security Services USA Inc. is teaming up with Purdue University Global for new programming. The pair will offer four security certificate programs to Securitas security officers and financial assistance for the officers to earn associate and bachelor's degrees. Securitas says it will provide its security officers scholarships that will pay 90 percent of tuition for the certificate courses, which can then be applied toward specific Purdue Global degrees.

The program is called the Securitas Learning, Education and Development Program. Purdue Global has developed the 20-credit certificate programs in management and leadership, customer service, security awareness and prevention and security preparedness and response.

Securitas says it will provide its security officers scholarships that will pay 90 percent of tuition for the certificate courses, which can then be applied toward specific Purdue Global degrees.

 “We worked closely with Securitas leaders to develop the course selections that specifically address the capabilities they envision for their workforce,” said Jeffrey Buck, PhD, dean of Purdue Global’s School of Business and Information Technology, in a news release. “Securitas understands the value of continuous learning for its employees and the subsequent benefits for its clients. Making this substantial investment will help Securitas to maintain its position as the thought leader in the security industry. We look forward to delivering a personalized, high-quality education for each Securitas student while being sensitive to the demands of attending school online as a working adult.”
