If you’ve ever considered a career in the security field, now is the time. Indeed, the security guard field in North Carolina is expanding fast.

Getting your certificate before finding your career in security is the best way to start. Many new large organizations and sectors are emerging in the state. This growth, in turn, emphasizes on the need for qualified and licensed security guards. Accordingly this has led to the growth of the security industry, by recruiting and employing more professionals with the valid Security Guard License North Carolina.

In order to help meet that demand we provide security guard training for Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, NC and the surrounding areas.

The North Carolina PPSB requires ALL licensees to qualify every year. Including registered security officers, armored car officers and private investigators who carry a firearm in the performance of their duties.  Officer must qualify on day and also night courses of fire and score at least 80% or higher on both to pass.

We HIGHLY recommend that those qualified to carry a firearm re-qualify within 90-days of the expiration date of their registration or license.

In fact, failing to do so will cause a lapse on with your firearm privileges. In short it will be very costly, both in terms of time and money.
