I am not a security guard, can I still take your pepper spray training course? +
The pepper spray training course that we offer is designed for security officers. Civilians do not need to take a course of training to be able to carry pepper spray for their own personal protection. While a permit is not needed, ideally it’s the good idea to have training and an understanding of the defensive tool that you’ll be using. As such, the pepper spray course would be open to anyone at least 18 years of age during our normal business hours.
When will I receive my BSIS approved permit for pepper spray? +
The pepper spray permit is not issued by the Bureau security and investigative services. Valley guard training provides the permit to show proof of training, the date of training, and the instructor providing the training. Your permit will be provided at the end of the class.
