Introduction To Security Guard Training

Generally speaking, a security guard's job is to protect property from vandalism, fire, theft and other forms of illegal activity. They usually do this by patrolling an indoor or outdoor location, keeping an eye out for suspicious activity, and using radio communication to contact law enforcement, fire or medical personnel when needed. They are also called upon to protect people. Security guards work in a wide variety of settings, large and small. They can be hired to watch over museums, office buildings, department stores, shopping centers, theatres, airports, colleges, public parks and a number of other locations.

Security Guard Training Job Skills and Duties 

Security guards must have strong observational skills, as they are asked to always be vigilant. Some settings require guards to watch a series of monitors from a single location within a building for anything out of the ordinary, with only occasionally having to patrol the area. Other security positions require a constant foot patrol. Working professionals who guard areas such as shopping mall parking lots or public parks, often do their patrols in vehicles. Security guards can work any time of the day, protecting people as well as property during the day and at night.

Security Guard Training Education Required

There is no specific educational requirement to be a security guard.  Most security guard positions will offer some kind on on-the-job training. Those who are hired as armed guards usually receive more rigorous training. The amount and complexity of training, otherwise, depends on the setting in which they will be working. Guards must be a minimum of 18 years of age and be licensed in order to work in most states. Further certification may be necessary depending on the type of security job. Guards can receive training in emergency procedures, property rights, detention of criminal suspects, report writing, public relations and other subjects. Separate licensing is also required for positions that involve carrying a weapon. A background check and drug testing is a another common requirement among employers.

Well Known Jobs Within this Field of Expertise

Security guard positions can vary in their level of difficulty and responsibility, and even their level of danger. Night security guards will deal very little with people, working by themselves or maybe with a couple of associates. Security guards who work in banks, armored cars or other establishments where the exchange of money is involved have to be more aware and are usually armed.

Frequently Asked Questions…

About Becoming A Unarmed Security Officer

Q: What are the steps I need to follow to become a Security Officer?

A: Here is the process, in order, step-by-step.

1. The first thing you need to do, is take the 20 Hour  (Unarmed) Course.  . Upon completion of the course, you will receive a “Certificate of Course Completion”, and a State of Illinois approved document certifying that you have taken the course, that you need to make a copy of. 

2. Once you complete the 20 Hour  (Unarmed) Course, you then need to undergo a “live fingerprint scan”. A company called “Biometric Impressions, Inc.

3. Once you have completed the live scan fingerprint process, the technician will give you a numbered receipt. You need to keep this, and make a copy. The initial fingerprint scan results (clear/not clear) will be available within a matter of days after the scan, online on the State of Illinois website.

4. Complete the Permanent Employee Registration Card (PERC) application,

5. Once your completed PERC application is in the mail (keep a copy for yourself), and your fingerprints have cleared (usually in 48 hours) you may begin working as an unarmed security officer.

Q: I want to be an Armed Security Guard. Do I still need to the 20 Hour  (Unarmed) Training Course?

A: Yes, you do. All contracted armed security officers must first take and successfully complete, the 20 Hour Basic (Unarmed) Class, and then, if they wish to work as an armed security officer, they can later take the 20 Hour Armed Security Course. If a student wishes, they can take both the 20 Hour  (Unarmed) Course and the 20 Hour Armed Security Course in the same week, and get all required training completed.

Q: Can I start working after I complete the unarmed course?

A: Once you successfully complete the Unarmed course, obtain your live fingerprint scan, and send in your completed application and fee to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, you may immediately begin working for a licensed Security Agency, as long as your fingerprints clear.

Q: Should I buy a firearm now?

A: No, you should take the 20 Hour Basic Unarmed Class and the 20 Hour Armed Course first, complete and submit your completed PERC application, and obtain work first. It is the decision of the Security Agency as to which of its officers it selects to work in an armed capacity.

Q: What is the 20 Hour Unarmed Basic Course all about?

A: The 20 Hour  (Unarmed) Course instructs students about federal and state constitutions and criminal law, criminal procedure, fire safety, arrest search and seizure, use of force, report writing, anti-terrorism tactics, violence in the workplace, hazardous materials, and much more.

Q: Is there a written test at the end of the unarmed class?

A: Yes there is, You must achieve a score of no less than 75% in order to pass the course, per state law. You must have a good command of the English language, and be able to read and understand English in order to do well in the course.

Q: How old do I have to be to be a Unarmed  Security Officer?

A: To be an unarmed security officer, you must be at least 18 years of age. To be an armed security officer, you must be at least 21 years of age.

Q: Can I carry pepper spray or a police baton after taking the class?

A: Defensive tools, such as “pepper spray”, “police batons”, TASERs, handcuffs and other such defensive tools may only be carried when:

1. You have been hired by a security agency or department, and;

2. That security agency or security department authorizes you to do so.

Q: How long does it take to get your PERC Card?

A: It can take 6 to 8 weeks to receive your Permanent Employee Registration Card, as IDPR is several weeks behind in processing paperwork. However, you can work in security while you wait for your PERC Card, as long as you have completed the 20 Hour Basic Unarmed Course, have completed the Fingerprint Scan and have your receipt, and have sent your completed “PERC Application” (which we will provide to you, and help you complete) and a fee of $ 55.00 to the State of Illinois.
