A guard card, also known as guard registration is a government issued permit/license which allows a person to legally work within the security industry here in the State of California. If your security position involves protecting people or property and you interact with the general public you must by law obtain a guard card or you and or your employer will suffer criminal penalties as well as greater civil liability. As of 2011 state law now requires all Security Officers and companies employing a security staff to register with the BSIS. The guard card itself is a credit card size paper permit issued by the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) which is a government run licensing and regulatory agency under the California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA). It is issued only after you complete the requirements set by law, which typically is a eight hour training course which goes over basic arrest powers as well as Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction. A valid California Guard Card is good for two years and must be renewed with 60 days of expiration in order to continue working security with California. read more »

We created the original online Security Guard Card Course in order to offer a more convenient and easier learning solution. We recognized early on that individuals require individual learning methods and the technology was there waiting for us to provide it. We took advantage of the opportunity and we not only take pride in being the first but the most advance affordable solution for completing state requirements in regards to training. Our online training program continues to grow daily with more and more training course being added. Most important is the fact that the public safety industry has not only been using our program ever since but continues to recommend us to others. This is your chance to get started now by click here.
We offer everything you need to get licensed and working, including live scan fingerprinting. The majority of training facilities require that you make several trips to multiple locations when completing the course in person, NOT US! We get you trained, get you fingerprinted (aka livescaned) and submit your State application in order to get you licensed as soon as possible. We have always been and continue to be the most affordable solution when it comes to obtaining a California Security Guard Card GUARANTEED!
