Unarmed Guard Training

Unarmed guard training typically involves a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on practice. The training may cover a range of topics, including legal issues, communication skills, conflict resolution, emergency response, and safety procedures. In the United States, the specific requirements for unarmed guard training vary by state. Some states have their own training requirements, while others may recognize training programs that are certified by professional organizations or by the federal government.

For example, in California, unarmed guards are required to complete a 40-hour training course that covers topics such as emergency response, first aid, and observation and documentation. In Texas, unarmed guards must complete a training program that includes at least eight hours of classroom instruction and eight hours of range time. Unarmed guard training programs may be offered by private security companies, community colleges, or vocational schools. Some programs may be offered online, while others may be offered in a traditional classroom setting. It is important for individuals seeking to become unarmed guards to research the specific training requirements in their state and to choose a reputable training program.

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.

    Security Service Questions

    Our guards all have to undergo extensive background checks before they can join our team. This includes checking references and running them through various databases. We are very careful about who he hires because we care about who represents our name and business. Equally, we care about your business, home or campus and the safety of it.
    We take a great deal of pride in the training that our guards receive. We hold them to the standards set by the state and we hold them to even higher standards ourselves. The bare minimum training required to work is 40 hours, (recruits can have less than this when they start but they’re required to be in training to do so). For our specialty guards, we have additional training that they have to go through. This is so that no matter what you can be sure that the guards keeping you and your business safe are up to the task.
    Most business owners aren’t security experts and there’s nothing wrong with that. There isn’t an easy to understand template to understand exactly what you need in regards to security. Often that knowledge is only found with experience. At On Tyme Security we have the experience to spare. You can always call and speak with one of our security experts. They can work with you to find the solutions that would work best for your business while staying within your budget. We work hard to make sure you’re getting the most value from the security guards you hire to protect the property
    This depends on the type of business you have and what your unique security needs are at the time. It could be possible that one is enough for your business or property but you might need five or more. You can always talk to one of our security experts who can help evaluate your needs so that you get the best value for your money.
