Important Security Guard Information

BSIS Firearms Requirements - for Security Guards, Alarm Agents, Private Investigators and Private Patrol Operators (PPO)

Security Guard Training - You need to complete the 8-hour Powers To Arrest course to get your guard card initially.  Then, you need to complete two mandatory courses and two elective courses for a total of 16 hours in the first 30 days, and another two mandatory and two elective courses for an additional 16 hours within the first 6 months.  You need 8 hours of training each year to retain your guard card.

Security Guard Firearms Permit - You need to complete a 14-hour course (8 hours classroom and 6 hours range time).  You need to submit an application to BSIS upon completion.  You then qualify for each specific caliber you intend to carry.  Firearms requalification is needed twice each year in order for you to renew at the end of two years.  In other words, you need to requalify four times by the time you renew after two years.  Here's a link on the BSIS website.

From the BSIS site regarding training:  

A. Firearm Requalifications Reminder

It has come to our attention that Firearm Permit renewal applicants are not requalifying with all calibers at each mandatory requalification. This notice is to provide clarification about that issue.

An individual who possesses a Firearm Permit must requalify with all calibers listed on their permit each time they shoot. If all calibers are not included on each mandatory requalification, the individual risks losing the authorization to carry the additional calibers.

The Firearm Instructor is responsible for seeing that the application, prior to submission to the Bureau, is completed as required.

B. Baton Training Facility and Baton Instructors

When submitting the “Report of Baton Permits Issued” to the Bureau, the information on the form should be clearly printed or typewritten, and filled out completely. Incomplete or unreadable forms may be returned for completion or correction instead of filed.

C. Baton Training Facility and Baton Instructors

“Report of Baton Permits Issued” forms must be submitted to the Bureau no later than five working days following the issuance of a baton permit (Business and Professions Code, section 7585.14 (c)).
