While all states may have different laws, almost all states include in their armed security guard training and educational requirements firearm knowledge and technical skills. This is so the armed security guard can effectively use a firearm in the defense of self and others.
This Armed Security Guard Workbook was developed to meet the most stringent standard. It represents 40 hours of study materials. It also includes a 10 hours legal section that discusses Weapons and Firearms and the use of deadly force. These 10 hours of the curriculum are modeled after Florida laws, which regulates heavily security guard activities. This section constitutes an excellent moral guideline to work from, but it is your responsibility to research and teach the law of your state, county, city, as well as ensure that you take the steps you need to meet your state’s licensing requirements, if there are any.
