Cost of Class: $100

The applicant must be 18 years of age and be in possession of a Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) guard card or recently completed the basic security guard training. A chemical agents license is not valid if the security guard is not in possession of a valid security guard license.

The State of California mandates 4 hours of instruction on the following topics to obtain the license:

  1. Moral and legal aspects of chemical agent use.
  2. Use of force and how chemical agents factor in.
  3. Chemical Agent familiarization and uses.
  4. First aid and decontamination for chemical agent exposure.

The possession of ONLY a security guard’s registration card (guard card) does not allow the security guard to carry a weapon; the security guard must also have a valid exposed firearm permit and/or a baton certificate. It is ILLEGAL to carry a firearm without a firearm permit and a valid security guard registration. It is ILLEGAL to carry a baton without a baton permit and a valid security guard registration. (Pg12 2011 BSIS Powers of Arrest Manual)
