Our Website at www.GuardCardCourses.com was established in 2008, as the first website to produce an online security guard training program in the state of California. We created the website and all of our online BSIS certified training courses content was authored by our BSIS Certified Instructor, Charles 'Terry' Brown and his Security Guard Training Company, TwoProtect Training Institute.

Since then we have trained over 50,000 security guards online. We work with individuals, security companies (PPOs), as well as private security employers (PSEs) such as night clubs, hotels, entertainment venues, sports stadiums, hospitals, etc. We are also one of the few companies that is currently certified by the state of California to provide the 16-hour Private Proprietary Security Officer (PSO) training online.
