(PK-101) - $89.00

The 40-hours of combined courses are all you need to both obtain your guard card (first 8-hours) and to complete the BSIS first year 32-Hour continuing education requirement for all CA State security guards.

The 40-hours is combined into a single package to help you save money, and at the same time give you the complete training you need to meet the BSIS first year guard card training requirements.

If you complete the 40-hours while you are looking for work, you apply for jobs and you can tell an employer that you have already completed all 40-hours. Companies are much more likely to hire someone with the full 40-hours completed than they are to hire someone who has not taken the full set of training courses.

Guard Card Training Requirements (California)

The following CA State security guard training requirements are taken from the CA State BSIS website: CA State Security Guard Facts Sheet (BSIS Website Reference).

  • The power to arrest training must be completed prior to the issuance of a Security Guard Registration (BPC Sections 7583.6 and 7583.8).

  • The thirty-two (32) hours of training in security officer skills must be completed within the first six (6) months of licensure.

  • Eight (8) hours of continuing training must be completed annually (BPC 7583.6 and CCR 643).

  • The training may be administered by the guard's employing private patrol operator or by a Bureau-certified course provider.

BSIS Advises: All registered security guards should maintain their own documented proof of completion of their training. Employers are required to maintain records for a minimum of two years; however registrants may need to provide subsequent employers or BSIS with training records. As a result, the BSIS recommends that registrants maintain copies of all of their own training records.

The training hours listed above are broken down as follows:

  • All Security Guards must take the first 8-hour required course before applying for their Guard Card (8 hours).

  • All Security Guards must take 16 hours of Mandatory Courses and 16 hours of Elective Courses within the first six months getting their guard card.

The guard card training and exam are administered by TwoProtect Training Institute on this website.
