Security Officer Training Courses & Certifications


Security Guard Training and Distance Learning

The security industry is deemed an essential service and may remain operational during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The security guard program continues to process training records submitted from approved training schools. All schools that choose to remain open must adhere to guidelines on student occupancy and social distancing contained in an April 10, 2020 memorandum issued by the Division.
To ease burdens and mitigate hazards caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Division has researched the viability of offering basic security guard training in a remote format. Program staff have determined that regulations do not restrict remote learning. Although several regulations require a student’s “attendance” at trainings (9 NYCRR §§ 6027.12 [a]; 6028.1 [f]; 6028.6 [f], [g]; 6029.1 [o]), they do not mandate the method of attendance. Therefore, the Security Guard Program will allow the 8 Hour Pre-Assignment Training Course for Security Guards to be delivered in an approved distance learning format.
