Security Guard Training Requirements (California)

The following CA State security guard training requirements are taken from the CA State BSIS website: CA State Security Guard Facts Sheet (BSIS Website Reference).

  • The power to arrest training must be completed before issuing a Security Guard Registration (BPC Sections 7583.6 and 7583.8).
  • The thirty-two (32) hours of training in security officer skills must be completed within the first six (6) months of licensure.
  • Eight (8) hours of continuing training must be completed annually (BPC 7583.6 and CCR 643).
  • The training may be administered by the guard's employing private patrol operator or a Bureau-certified course provider.

    This Continuing Education (CE) Course requires you to Have a Non-Expired Guard Card.

    BSIS Advises: All registered security guards should maintain their own documented proof of completion of their training. Employers must maintain records for a minimum of two years; however, registrants may need to provide subsequent employers or BSIS training records. As a result, BSIS recommends that registrants maintain copies of all of their own training records.
