What Training Programs Do Our NYC Security Guards Go Through?

According to NY State law, all potential security guards must complete the 8 Hour Pre-Assignment Training Course, an introductory program at the end of which they receive a certificate they must submit with their security guard application.

Then, they have 90 days to finish 16 hours of on-the-job training. If they have a gun permit, they can also take the 47 Hour Firearms Training to become an armed guard.

After the initial training, our security guards go through annual training in the form of 8-hour Annual In-Service Training and 8-hour Annual Firearms Training to uphold their armed guard registration. They must also submit Peace Officer Waivers unless they’re peace officers or police officers.
