Security Guard Training in New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, an unarmed security guard can fall under different rules. For example, if you hired by a company and are on their payroll, there are no criteria for you to meet. However, if you decide to work for yourself and solicit business as a sole proprietor you do have to meet certain criteria.

Basic requirements for an unarmed security guard in New Hampshire:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • United States resident
  • No felony convictions or misdemeanors associated with violence (which includes domestic), drugs ( use or sale), theft or fraud
  • Provide three references to vouch for your good character
