We conduct all unarmed and armed guard training certifications for New York State as described below and on our Armed Guard Training Page.
Fingerprinting is conducted by an electronic fingerprint vendor authorized by the New York State Department of State. We will give you instructions on how to get this done when you come to the training.
We will give you the paperwork for this when you come to the training.
The Security Guard Act of 1992 and New York State General Business Law Section 89 requires the training and registration of security guards in this state.
Note: Once you obtain your license you must renew it every two years.
There are three (3) unarmed courses consisting of videos and lectures required to obtain and maintain your security guard license (see below).
The first course you will need to take is the NYS Eight Hour Pre-Assignment Course for Security Guards.
You may only work temporarily (up to 90 days) with this license.
The second course you need is the NYS Sixteen Hour OJT Course for Security Guards. This course expands on lessons learned in the eight hour course and adds some Homeland Security Training.
This course is required by law within 90 days of initial employment but a number of prospective employers may not hire you without it, and hire somebody who does have it instead.
Best idea! Sign up for the NYS 8/16 hour combo course with us! Now only $115 if prepaid online or with card over the phone!
The third course you will need is the NYS Annual In-Service Course for Security Guards. You must take two (2) of these within your two year registration registration period to renew your security guard license regardless of whether you are working or not.
