Requirements for Security Guard Training in Chatsworth and Winnetka, C.A

In order to get into the security guard training in Chatsworth and Winnetka, C.A, you need to get yourself a California Guard Card. It is a license that will open up doors for your security guard career.

To become a registered security guard, you need to enroll in certified classes or online classes like 247 guard training offers. You have to finish a guard card training of 8-hours which is provided by the 247 guard training. You will be able to get employed as a security professional after you pass your eight hours training and examination.

However, you are still not a registered security guard after the training of eight hours. You need to appear in a sixteen hours training and pass the test in the first thirty days of getting employed. Then, in the next six months, there will be another sixteen hours of training. So, there will be forty hours of total training to become a registered security official in California.

The eight hours of training is a mandatory step to apply for the California Guard Card and to be able to begin security guard training in Chatsworth and Winnetka, C.A. This initial stage of training consists of two modules. The first four hours of the training are dedicated to the knowledge of Powers to Arrest.

In the first module, you will learn about the legal aspects of arresting a person.  The Department of Consumer Affairs’ Powers to Arrest has designed the training module where you will encounter diverse lectures, role-playing, and exercises.

In the second section of four hours, you will know about Terrorism Awareness and WMD or Weapons of Mass Destruction. This course is there to educate you on the subject matters but also teach and hone your observational skills. They will help you spot any suspicious activity and maybe stop any potential terrorist attack.

The next 16-hours of training are divided into four courses which are Observation and Documentation, Public Relations, the Liability and Legal Aspects and Communication and its Significance. In the Liability and Legal Aspects, the potential security guards will be taught administrative, criminal, and civil policies along with BSIS codes.

This course will be proceeded by another sixteen hours of training in the next six months. The training is composed of elective courses on Preserving the Incident Scene, Post Orders and assignments, and Officer Safety Handling Difficult People.
