ICA Backgrounds, a division of Security Engineers, Inc. — Your Leader in Private Security Solutions.

As the private security industry continues to move toward technology, SEI, Inc. is committed to helping our clients understand and integrate technology as most appropriate for their individual needs.

    As a part of our ongoing partnership we make certain our clients and their personnel have access to custom Client-Level Training Programs. Many of the programs normally taught to Security Officers have augmented “sister-programs” that are taught to Corporate Personnel or other employees. Audio/visual classroom instruction, testing and live-fire firearms training for our clients are all conducted at the SEI, Inc. Corporate Office and Training Facility located in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. If you are not located near Birmingham, one of our ASRB CT2 certified NRA Law Enforcement firearms instructors can come to you. 

    HOSTILE INTRUDER/ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING (One of our most popular Client-Level Training Programs)

    Security Engineers is a leader in the private security industry, providing sound training focused on hostile intruders and active shooter situations. By breaking down the Department of Homeland Security’s “Run, Hide, Fight” protocol, our Hostile Intruder/Active Shooter class highlights tangible opportunities to prevent and respond to worst case scenarios. This is one of the most popular courses taught to client personnel. OHSA considers Workplace Violence preparedness as part of the obligation of companies under General Duty Clause 2. While these sorts of situations are rare, once they happen it is too late to prepare for them. The goal of the Hostile Intruder/Active Shooter training class is to create a “beehive mentality” where disconnected individuals operate from a singular focus without the benefit of organized, in-the-moment, direction.

    Please review the classes available and let us know if you are interested in having seminars or training sessions done for your company — either at SEI Birmingham or in your facility.
