What will I get out of this website?

Just like any other profession, Security guards are regulated by the state. Because of that, the State mandates that everyone who wants to be a security guard will have to attain a certification before they are allowed employment. Proficiency and specific knowledge are needed before becoming a licensed Security Guard. On this site, a prospect can get a JumpStart to their security training. You will know what to focus on “BEFORE” you take the certification course. Learn more info about your State here…

Will I be able to get my certification thru this website?

Unfortunately, at this time not all states recognize online certifications. This site will prepare you for that certification class with the general knowledge needed to pass the test for certification.

How much does the information cost?

This information is general but job-specific. This information is a preparation for the certified state classroom course. JumpStart Security Guard Training and Safety Tips wants all security guard prospects to gain relevant knowledge and understanding to start a foundation in security guard training. This information will give a prospect a heads-up on the subjects that will be discussed. A prospect will have to deal with other fees associated with a state-certified class.

There will be eBooks for sale for an easier reading experience.

What are those other fees?

Each state is different, so you will have to research your state’s qualifications and application procedures. There may be a fee associated with the class instruction. There are private security instruction courses all over, that are certified to teach the class. Some security companies will have their own class instruction and certification.
