Online Training

I already did my eight hours of guard card training is there more training I have to do?

The BSIS requires a total of 40 hours of training. The first 8 hours are completed in order to apply for the guard card. Then once you receive the guard card, you are given 6 months to complete the additional 32 hours of training also known as continuing education.

What is the difference between online guard card training and in class guard card training? +

The only real difference is the ability to start and stop on your schedule rather than having to attend a class for a fixed duration. Online you can take the class wherever you are, when you are ready. The material covered is the same for both the online and in classroom guard card course.
