Becoming a Licensed Security Officer
You must be at least 18 years of age to apply for a Security Guard Registration in New York, passed a New York State Department of Justice background check and be a citizen of the United States; have a resident alien card (a green card), or have a work authorization card. You are required to show proof that you have completed the 8-hour pre-assignment security guard training class before you apply. At Liberty Security Training Institute, we take a personal interest in each of our students. We walk you through every step of the way to make sure that you don't get caught up in the technicalities that might prevent you from obtaining your security guard certification and starting your career as a licensed security guard.
New York State Fees
To apply for a Security Guard Registration Card: $36.00
Submit with your Electronic Fingerprinting: $102.25
Additional Service Fee: $25.00
New York State requires these fees. They are completely separate from the cost of your security guard training courses. Liberty Security Training Institute takes the time to guide you through the entire application process, to save you time and money.
Required Security Guard Training
In order to receive your security guard certification, you must complete two training courses.
Before applying to the Department of State for a Security Guard Registration Card, you must take an 8 Hour Pre-Assignment Training Course. The pre-assignment course covers important information that everyone working as a security officer must know. At Liberty Security Training Institute, you will also be taught how to prepare a resume or application and interview for a position as a security officer, as well as how to navigate the requirements for fingerprinting and filing with New York State. When you have completed your training, our placement service may be able to help you get a job to start your career as a licensed security guard.
Once you have secured a position as a security guard, you must complete a 16 Hour On-the-Job Training Class for Security Officers within 90 days. This class covers the duties of a security officer and procedures relevant to a work site. The initial 8 hour and 16 hour courses only have to be taken once, but you are required to take an 8 Hour Annual In-service Training Course for Security Officers every year that you work as a security guard.
Keeping Your Registered Security Guard Status
Sign up for our 8 Hour Annual In-service Training Course for Security Officers every year to maintain your security guard certification. If you fail to complete the annual in-service training, it may result in losing your security officer license.
Once you take any of security guard training courses at Liberty Security Training Institute, we'll remind you every year when it's time to take your Annual 8 Hour In-Service Training, so there's no chance you'll miss out on renewing your license. It's just another way we help our students to succeed in their chosen career as a licensed security officer.
