California Guard Card Training

All Security Officers in Ventura and surrounding cities must obtain a California Guard Card in order to work in the state of California. At Cornwall Security, we provide the 8 hour initial guard card training course, live scan, and processing the application through BSIS right here at our offices. Call our office to secure your spot for the next Guard Card class. The total Cost is $200 for in-house training and all requirements needed for applications.

Additional Training Offered

Pepper Spray Certification, Arrest and Control, Taser Certification, and CA ABC Beverage Server Training. We work with individual guards and in-house teams. Ask us how we can transform your team into a powerfully trained unit. While the online guard card course may seem easier, it is highly recommended that you take care of everything in house so that you can begin this journey with confidence and poise as our instructors relate real world experiences to bolster the students understanding.

Courses begin at 9:00 a.m. and carry on throughout the day, ending at 4:00 p.m. Check-in is at 8:30 a.m. and it is recommended that you bring beverages and lunch for this 8 hour educational day.
