ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2014) - AlliedBarton Security Services,, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, announces the completion of two million AlliedBarton|EDGE® training courses since 2009. The AlliedBarton|EDGE eLearning courses have been completed by AlliedBarton employees at all levels and help to develop skills useful in their everyday work environments. This milestone is announced in conjunction with the ASIS International 60th Annual Seminar and Exhibits conference at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from September 29 to October 2, 2014.

"Learning and Development are critical to the security industry and the services that we provide to our clients on a daily basis," said Carol Johnson, President and COO, AlliedBarton. "The completion of the two millionth AlliedBarton|EDGE course signifies our employees' passion for learning as they continually seek to enhance their knowledge, and demonstrates our comprehensive and ongoing commitment to training that is accessible and engaging. This milestone is a tribute to our learning-based culture that is embraced throughout AlliedBarton and enhances our service delivery."

AlliedBarton reached its one millionth course completion on the AlliedBarton|EDGE -- Educate, Develop, Grow and Engage -- in 2012 and has experienced year-over-year increases in completion since the online learning management platform was introduced.

"Many AlliedBarton employees go beyond mandatory training to take classes in areas of professional and personal interest," said Brent O'Bryan, VP, Learning and Development, AlliedBarton. "In an internal survey, 94% of our security officers indicated that training is a critical factor to their success. The ability to respond successfully to any number of security challenges and remain relevant in our evolving world requires continuous learning. Our employees recognize that through training they can expand their skills, and they are always hungry for knowledge. Our clients appreciate the high level of preparedness and responsiveness that is the result of our training."

That includes the LearningElite award from Chief Learning Officer magazine, which AlliedBarton received in 2014 for the fourth consecutive year. Also honored with the Training Top 125, ASTD Best and Brandon Hall awards, AlliedBarton's training has been measured against the top learning organizations across the country. The security leader was also recognized as one of Chief Executive magazine's Best Companies for Leaders.
