BSIS Security Guard Training

BSIS Basic Security Guard Training

In order to obtain a Security Guard license in the State of California, a few requirements must first be satisfied. The applicant must be 18 years of age. They must show US citizenship or legal right to work in the United States. They must not have been previously convicted of any disqualifying criminal offenses (see page 2)
A security guard must complete 40 hours of required training to receive their Guard Card. They must also complete an 8-hour refresher course every 12 months after completing the 40-hour course. It is typical for an employer to offer the 8 hours of training every year to sustain the guard card.
As part of that training, a security guard must complete an 8-hour Power to Arrest training course prior to being placed on post (employed). In addition, 16 hours of training is required within 30 days of the initial license being issued and an additional 16 hours within the first six months.
