  4. You can visit a google map to see different locations of schools in Florida, but if you are located or work close to downtown Miami area or don’t want to actually drive to the Division of Licensing that is also in downtown Miami then you should try security training academy in 223 east Flagler , Miami 33131 ( 855 6239732) After taking your security guard course , the division of licensing is like couple blocks away, or the secretary of school can take it there for you.
