To be a security officer in the state of Florida, you must complete 40 hours of classroom training and 2 hours of testing. Once completed you can obtain a Class D Security License. We teach this course every week(excluding weeks with major holidays). This class runs Mon-Thurs 8AM-6:30PM with two hours of testing beginning at 6:30PM Thursday afternoon.
If you wish to also obtain a Class G Security License after obtaining the Class D Security License, we also offer that course. The state of Florida requires 28 hours of classroom and range training to obtain the Class G License. Make sure to bring with you your valid photo ID and pen and paper (this applies to both courses).This class runs Mon-Wed 8AM-5:30PM.
There is no pre-registration for either course and payment would be due the first day of class. We accept debit, credit, cash and money orders (made payable to Giddens Security).
Through specialized training provided by our own state certified unarmed and armed school, our security officers are well acquainted with today's security issues.
