California BSIS Approved Guard Card / Power to Arrest Training - Online

Who needs a guard card? In California, anyone who wishes to work  as a "security guard" is required to obtain a state issued security guard registration / license. This security guard license is known as a "Guard Card." In order to obtain a California Guard Card, you are first required to complete an 8-Hour California State approved "Guard Card" / Power to Arrest Class. The guard card/power to arrest class can be completed with a number of authorized private businesses and private training facilities throughout California. As a licensed private training facility, Cody S & Associates, you can complete the 8-hours of required training completely online

    How does the online guard card class work?

    Course Requirements
    The California BSIS requires that students complete 8-hours state mandated training. This includes the requirement that prior to receiving the course completion certificate, a guard card applicant must complete the "power to arrest" final examination with a score of 100%. With Cody S & Associates, Inc.'s online class, we deliver the course and the final exam to you through our easy to use online classroom. 

    Class Structure
    Cody S & Associates, Inc.'s online classroom delivers the guard card class to you through a number of self-paced learning sections and your time is tracked as you go through the course material. The course modules consist of a number of training video lectures, interactive animated videos, and a number of self-paced assessments. Once you have completed all of the modules and spent the required time, you take the exam online. As soon as you complete the 8-hour of training and pass the exam (100% online), your course completion certificate is emailed to you. It's as easy as that! 

    Benefits Completing the Guard Card Class Online
    The online guard card class easy to use and allows you to complete the training 100% online at your own pace. Many people find it difficult to take time out of their busy schedules (work, school, children, etc.) to complete the traditional in-person guard card class at an in-person private security training facility. If this applies to you, our online class is the perfect solution. Not only is our online guard card class affordable in comparison to most guard card classes (compare our $65 course fee to other classes that can cost you $85 - $100+), completing the online guard card class with us allows you to complete the 8-hours of training when you have the time to do it. You can complete the 8-hours all at once or complete the class in sections (2 hours here, 1 hour there, etc.). It's up to you!
