Armed Security Guard Training in Hawaii

In Hawaii, effective July 1 2013, all security guards will need to be registered. However, the state statues prohibit the use of guns; therefore, it is up to each county to make those requirements for armed security guards. However, counties must satisfy requirement regulations pursuant to section 134-2(g)

Basic Requirements:

  • Must be at least 21 year old
  • High School diploma or equivalent
  • Four years of guard experience
  • Pass an Exam
  • Be mental sound and not suffering from any psychological disorder, which will impede you from performing security guard duties
  • No convictions (not including expunged or annulled by the courts)
  • Submit to a criminal background check
  • Have good moral character
  • Have not committed any acts of fraud
  • Submit to fingerprinting
  • Provide criminal background abstract for the last 10 years
  • Good physical conditioning
  • Weapon permit issued by county police

Training Requirements:

  • Class room instruction (8 hours) before assigned to post
  • Yearly refresher training (4 hours)

  1. I have never been a security guard but would like to start

  2. Have 6 year experience in security including working for a fortune 100 biotech company in California. I wish to inquire about going armed security for potential increase in pay.
