Annual Security Guard Firearms Qualifications 

The North Carolina PPSB requires ALL licensees, registered security officers, armored car officers and private investigators who carry a firearm in the performance of their duties to qualify each year with their duty weapon. Officer must qualify on both day and 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 60 to 90-days of the expiration date of their registration or license.  This will lessen the likelihood of having a lapse on your firearm privileges, which can be very costly, both in terms of time and money.

The  Annual Firearms Qualification course consists of 4-hours of classroom training, which includes a legal recap of applicable laws affecting the armed professional, firearms safety, marksmanship skills and more.  Following a break, students report to the range to qualify on each prescribed course of fire.  We STRONGLY encourages and recommends all students to PRACTICE at a range with their firearm PRIOR to attending the Annual Firearms Qualification course.

Per 14B NCAC 16,  failure to qualify in three (3) attempts on either the day or night courses of fire will result in the suspension of an officer's armed registration, even if the armed registration has not yet expired. Failure to qualify could adversely affect your employment status to work in an armed capacity.

Cost $100.00 (one firearm) for up to three (3) attempts, this does not include the cost of ammunition.
