About SEC, LLC
Safety Education Consortium, LLC (SEC, LLC.) is a consortium based corporation providing the most comprehensive educational experience for the desired class. SEC, LLC is designed to match the best companies and instructors with those requesting top notch education backed by a leading accreditation firm. Our experience through the consortium is second to none in Fire, EMS, HazMat, and specialized education. We also offer OSHA safety classes and complete site specific Integrated Contingency Planning.
SEC, LLC is designed to transform the way life safety and rescue education are taught across the country. For too long there has been a blinders approach to teaching. The “my way” is the best way is outdated and doesn’t work efficiently, effectively or economically anymore. SEC is designed to collaborate with the best in the industry in order to bring the newest, best and most comprehensive educational experience to those we teach. We are determined to make the best educational experience and environment for our students. All parties within the consortium are determined to work together in such a manner to encourage an atmosphere of collaboration. This collaboration alliance is designed to support an effective and efficient partnership to establish best practices in safety education.
SEC, LLC sets to change a trend we find troubling, exacerbated by the Covid pandemic. Many private companies, trade schools and instructors have pulled back from teaching outside of their geographical area. Our primary goal is to match the client to the proper company or instructors to reach the highest level of instruction at the lowest possible price anywhere the education is requested. SEC, LLC has partnered with both external and internal consortia businesses. We understand this is not the norm in consortium based companies but SEC, LLC has done this to become partners with high level educators in the industry. SEC, LLC is designed as a network of the best companies working towards a common goal.
SEC, LLC and the consortium’s partners education certificates are backed by Pro Board through Great Oaks Public Safety whenever the contract requests this need. Pro Board certificates are recognized across state lines unlike many state to state reciprocity transfers. It affords an easier and seamless transfer if transferred across state lines, promote or changing duty station locations for the Department of Defense.
SEC, LLC. will also do site specific Integrated Contingency Planning in addition to any Emergency Response Plan needed for emergency operations. SEC, LLC. will also teach and review any and all documents created with employees. Within this process we will create emergency planning designed in accordance with NIIMS, local, state and federal guidelines. We create site specific active shooter response planning and training with local and state emergency responders.
