MVCC, Masonic Care Community to partner on security guard training


UTICA — Mohawk Valley Community College’s Center for Corporate and Community Education is partnering with Masonic Care Community (MCC) to offer an Eight-Hour Pre-Assignment Training for Security Guards for free, after which participants would work as security guards for MCC. The training will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, on MVCC’s Utica Campus, 1101 Sherman Drive.

The course, required by New York State to obtain a security guard license, provides participants with a general overview of the duties and responsibilities of a security guard, including the role of the security guard, legal powers and limitations, emergency situations, communications and public relations, access control, and ethics and conduct.

Participants must pass an examination to successfully complete the course.

“At the Masonic Care Community, our security officers maintain the safety of our senior care facility,” said Mara Mulligan, director of strategic marketing and philanthropy at Masonic Care Community.

“We have a large, 440-acre campus and more than 500 elderly residents, and so our security officers are key members of the MCC team as they help to keep our residents, and our campus, safe,” Mulligan added.

Prior to taking the course, participants must be interviewed and approved. For more information and to sign up for an interview, contact Joseph Ciccone, security supervisor at MCC, at 315-798-4800 x6924 or apply online at
