Excellence in every way!

I have been working with API Security from the last 2 years. The company has given me the opportunity to grow as a person. They provide training programs which helps the person to learn, grow and perform better at the job. If you are a person who takes responsibility and willing to grow, then there are a lot of opportunities, the company can give you. Working as a concierge, I learned how to talk to people, build connections and solve problems which is a skill that can help me for the rest of my life. I thank you API Security for everything.

Highly recommended

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I have worked in multiple offices where API installed and services their security systems. They have fantastic products and are always quick to assist. In the instances I've had an issue the owner Ed or one of his great employees has always been there to help!

Security guard training and first aid

Our camera system was seemlessly installed and the owner Ed Johnston makes himself available for any questions that come up. We are now considering using additional services with API Security. We recommend using them for you business too.

Best security training OPOTC and first aid training classes

Just be clearer when posting jobs online with what the pay rate will be, when posting it says $15 - $18 an hour when in reality that is for the instillation services the offer. Great people very professional and friendly!
