Guard Card
Only $18.95 On-Line (NO READING REQUIRED! Multi-media course.*)

This is the required course a security guard must complete in order to receive a California Guard Registration Card (Guard Card). California law requires all security guards to be licensed through the California Department of Consumer Affairs, Bureau of Security and Investigative Services. The license is called a Guard Registration Card, or “Guard Card” for short.

Before applying for a “Guard Card”, the applicant must first complete a prescribed course to include four hours of training in the “Powers to Arrest” and four hours of course work on “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” You must be at least 18 years of age in order to apply for a guard card. The test at the end of the course is an open book, open notes test. We strongly suggest that students download and print the course manual prior to taking the test.

* On-line students must read the test questions and answers while taking tests. No other reading is required for the on-line course.

Course Information and Resources

Course Length: 8 hours
Online Course Cost: $18.95

Exposed Firearms Permit

This permit is issued by the state and is required in order for a security guard to carry a firearm while in uniform and on-duty. The course includes one day (8 hrs) in the classroom and one day on the shooting range. In order to complete the course, you must attend the full day of classroom training and then shoot the qualifying course of fire on the shooting range. The course fee covers the classroom time, the instructor’s time on the range and the use of one firearm in order to qualify. Students must pay for their range time (typically around $10.00) and pay for their ammunition. Students who bring their own firearms may use any ammunition they wish. Students who use firearms provided by Practical Defense Systems must purchase their ammunition at the shooting range.

NOTE: You must bring proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residency in the United States.

The ONLY documents that are accepted by BSIS are:

Birth Certificate; U.S. Passport; DD-214; Valid Military ID; Green Card; or INS paperwork.

Course Information and Resources

Course Length: 14 hours (8 hrs classroom, 6 hrs range time)
Cost: $99.00

What these courses mentioned above will get you is a certificate of completion that you've completed / satisfied what is needed for BSIS / State.

Now getting the Job / Gun and in uniform all depends if you are able to get hired by a Security Company.

Hope this helps.

Have a Great Week

Thank you so much for offering your service. I used to work security for 4 years and allowed my card to expire because I went back to college. Now that I'm looking back at getting in I have to renew my card, some place was going to charge me $140, which is a ripoff compared to your price.

How long does it take from time of completion of your corse until I can get my actual guard card? (IE, I finish your class on tuesday, and I submit my paperwork to the state Wednesday along with my live scan, how long until my application is approved/ I get my card?)

Also what would be the cost associated with start to finish? (I'm looking for any "surprise" costs, not the $51 bucks to the state or the live scan costs)

A little review of the courses...

The actual courses are what you would expect, not to boring at all...

The one thing EVERYONE SHOULD DO, is but the 8hour course first, go through it and then file the information with the state.

THEN buy the 32 hour course and finish it...

DO NOT BUY the whole 40 hour course, you have to complete the entire thing before you can print out the cert, so if you are like me and wanted to submit the 8hr course and then finish up the rest of the 32hr course you are out of luck...

Other than that everything was good...

Depends on which Company you work with and the post orders.

Depending on the location you may work at can be $9-$13 unarmed and from $11-$20 armed

All depending on the PPO you work for as well as what contract they have will determine the pay rate for that Post.

Hope this is somewhat helpful
