Charlotte-based Premier Training Academy opened its doors in 2003. Our founder, David Bailey, had a vision. With 40+ years of experience in the industry, he anticipated the increased demand for professional Security Officers in the Carolinas. And recognized the importance of ensuring there were highly skilled and trained professionals to meet the challenge.
He was right.
The Carolinas continue to grow in record numbers.
The marked increase in the business and residential
populations has created an ever-growing demand for
qualified Security Professionals.
In response, we have expanded our services as well.
