CA Security Guard Training Overview:  All Security Guards are required to get their State of California Guard Card before they can start working.  GuardCardCourses.com is here to simplify that process and allow you to take all of the required courses online.  The first step to getting your Guard Card in California is to get the initial security training certificate by taking the state required 8-hour Guard Card certification course. The Guard Card certification course is available on this website, along with all other state required courses.  As with all of our courses, you will receive your certificate, online, right when you complete the course.

Previous to the online solution, all guards have to go and take these courses in a class room for 4 or 8 hours at a time.  The training centers are spread out all over, so they are not always convenient to get to.  Now, with the online solution from GuardCardCourses.com, guards can quickly and Easily obtain their required training, from anywhere they can access the internet.  And, they can complete the courses at their own pace any time, day or night.
