At Paladin, we take great pride in teaching others who may not have had previous experience in security to know how to help others, care for themselves, and create a safe environment. We’re helping people who want to start a career in security understand the tools and techniques needed to manage critical situations. Moreover, we further improve Security Officer’s skills focused on their specific roles, which lead to personal and professional growth. It is part of our C.A.R.E. culture of being Curious, Accountable, Respectful, and Exceptional.
Paladin has earned a national reputation as the leading training organization within the security industry, and we have achieved such a prestigious title thanks to our outstanding training experts. Meet some of our featured Paladin trainers: Alessandro Caperna, Sean Crawford, Anthony Suppa, Noah Tufts, and Norm Bettencourt.
Meet Security Trainer Xavier Youngsue:
Xavier studied Police Foundations at Durham College and started with Paladin in January 2016 as a Mobile Officer. He was soon promoted to Zone Supervisor in 2017, where he covered many sites across the Greater Toronto Area while growing with the Mobile squad. Xavier has worked in various areas of the security industry, including retail security, college campuses, healthcare security, and even movie production coverage.
Spreading Security Wisdom
Xavier is always excited to take on new challenges and has learned to manage added responsibility enthusiastically. At one point, he took the role of Site Supervisor while still working on the Mobile Team to help with the coverage of a brand-new site. After gaining significant experience in the field, Xavier wanted to share his vast security knowledge with people looking to improve or start their security careers. He moved to the training department and was awarded the position of Casual Security Trainer. Shortly after, he was designated as a Full-time Security Trainer.
As a passionate security professional, Xavier is all about continuous education and loves to upgrade himself constantly. He recently became an ASP (Armament Systems and Procedures) Instructor and is currently in the process of becoming an ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) Instructor. This is a perfect example of how he champions Paladin’s C.A.R.E. culture by being “Curious” and constantly seeking opportunities to learn and grow!
Thank you for your invaluable knowledge and expertise, Xavier!
Xavier is another shining example of our outstanding trainers at Paladin. They really take the time and dedication when it comes to training our staff. The Paladin Difference is about more than just meeting curriculum requirements or teaching students about everyday security procedures; it’s about bringing the classroom to life. We want our students to be able to take the information they’ve learned and apply it to their next patrol. Through this hands-on, strategic learning, we are empowering our security professionals to make a positive difference in their communities.
