Peter's Success Story: Finding the Right Career Path“I trained in marital arts for 14 years and worked as an instructor for 9 years before I started the program at Goodwill. Eventually, I decided it was time to try something different and I looked into new career paths while I worked as an Uber driver.

As I researched security jobs and requirements one of my friends mentioned Goodwill. I found the Security & Protective Services Job Training Program online and went in for an application session and was fortunate to be accepted.

“…it promotes discipline and provides in depth training.”

I love the training program, how it promotes discipline and provides in depth training. The resume building and job search training was very helpful as I completed job applications.

“I feel like I am well prepared for the Security industry…”

I feel like I am well prepared for the Security industry and hope to start a job as an armed or unarmed special police officer(SPO). Several years from now I hope to translate my experience as an SPO into a career as a police officer.”

Peter received multiple job offers upon completing Goodwill’s Security & Protective Services Job Training Program and is now working full time at Master Security.
