California Guard Card Requirements

You may stand post after an eight hour course and receiving your guard card. You will have 30 days to complete your first sixteen hours of training and then six months after getting your Security Guard card permit to complete the remaining sixteen hours for a total of forty. You may elect to take all forty hours of Security Guard permit training at one time also. Prior to renewal of your Security Guard card after January 1, 2005 you must complete an eight hour refresher course four of which will be a mandated course set by the state and a four hours of an elective.

We have the quality and professional training that will make you a leader in the Security Industry, we offer support during and after you complete your training.

Please check the facilities tab for the location near you. We are located in Burbank, Huntington Beach and Northridge for the California armed guard license and unarmed guard license. All course work is certified by the BSIS for the California security training by Security training Center.

Beware of the training facilities that say they can do the 8 hours course in just 2 hours and it is only 45 questions. Ask yourself if you were the employer would you want the employee with the two hour training or would you want the employee that had the real state mandated 8 hours course. Security guard companies do look at the quality of your training and where you took your training for your security guard card, baton and firearms permit. We have the only facilities that all the instructors have college degrees, we have the quality that all guard companies look for in the training, we also train and certify firearms instructors, we have the services that others try to follow, we have the price, and we will give you the answer and quality training that exceeds the state minimums. To be a professional security officer you must be trained by Professional Instructors.

How do I get a California Security Guard Card License?

All professional security guards that work in the state of California must be licensed and registered with the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS). To be properly licensed, the security guard must complete a standard course in the powers of arrest, weapons of mass destruction/ terrorism awareness, public relations, observation and documentation, Communication and its Significance, Liability/Legal Aspects and other elective courses that vary depending upon the training facility.
