Security Guard 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 BSIS recommends that registrants maintain copies of all of their own training records.
