Armed Guard Training
In California, armed guard training is typically provided by private security companies, community colleges, or vocational schools. The training may be offered online or in a traditional classroom setting.
To become an armed guard in California, an individual must first obtain a guard card from the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS). To qualify for a guard card, an individual must be at least 18 years old, have a clean criminal record, and pass a live scan fingerprinting process.
Once the individual has obtained a guard card, they must then complete a 40-hour training course, known as the Power to Arrest Training. This course covers topics such as emergency response, first aid, and observation and documentation.
In addition to the Power to Arrest Training, armed guards in California must also complete a 16-hour course on the use of firearms and pass a written test and a shooting proficiency test. This training is typically provided by a firearms training facility or a licensed firearms instructor.
It is important for individuals seeking to become armed guards in California to research the specific training requirements and to choose a reputable training program.
