We follow the State’s course manual and then we exceed the State’s minimum requirements and provide you with a well-rounded, basic bodyguard certification course, which is recognized throughout the state. We have added many suggestions and recommendations from security employers and prior students to our class to make it what it is today.

We have doubled the amount of training that the state requires and thus, our class is now a 30 hour course of instruction and certification to better prepare and immerse you into the field.
