    I live in Marion, Nc near Asheville. I am currently employed full time and taking Criminal Justice courses at Western Piedmont CC in Morganton. I am looking for security training on the weekends due to my work schedule. Do you offer this near me?? Charlotte, I guess would be the closest to me, or are there other facilities closer. Please advise. Thank You.
