Expectations and Outcomes

After completing our training course Archangel will sponsor the students. This will allow the students to receive their commission (SPO license).  Must training academies DO NOT sponsor.  This means after completing their training program you will NOT be a license officer.  You will have to go find sponsorship in order to receive your commission.

Archangel does not guarantee employment with any of our permits or courses. Our sponsorship is intended to be temporary, as many employers desire their students to have their permits ahead of time despite the fact that a sponsoring employer is required for the application itself. When we receive notification of available contracts, the information is dispersed out to all students equally with the expectation that you will be putting in your own effort to reach out and make contact with prospective employers.
