[...] Armed Security Guard Training in Missouri | Security Guard Training – Your Security Guard Training R… Basic Requirements for an Armed Security Guard in Missouri: Must be at least 21 years old United States citizen or registered resident alien Successfully passing a background check which may include drug testing Missouri state driver’s License Good physical conditioning No mental instability No drug use or dependency No acts of fraud or convictions I had a bad two and a half years where I had been mentally ill, but we saw a doctor and put me on risperdol (anti-psychotic) and prozac (anti-depressant). I am wondering if because I did have a mental illness, but nothing that caused me to get caught up in the criminal justice system or have court mandated treatment, if I might not qualify for armed security guard. I must say that since I take those medicines on a regular basis Im pretty level headed and a clear, concise, thinker. They also qualify as drugs, but they aren't the type that you would abuse. I can pass a drug test no problem. I drink alcohol on a pretty regular basis but never on the job. My physical conditioning could use some work. I have a drivers license and a reliable form of transportation (a miata :P ) Also I had a DWI, but I think that was suspended imposition of sentence in that I completed my probation, and as long as I don't get anymore it won't count as a conviction. What do you guys think? Some of you are probably more familiar with this line of work. I really hope I could qualify, because my whole major that I am almost finished with is based around passing these types of background checks.
