Welcome to the Security Guard Licensing Blog on Weebly. Although i'm a sucker with intro's, i'll try to do my best to make you feel welcome from the first post. The main goal of The Security Guard Licensing Blog is to educate people who want to enter the security guard industry. Because we are a group of passionate guards ourselves, we wanted to build a place to go for starters in the field. 

Those of you who have been job hunting in the last couple of years have definitely seen the numerous security guard positions. A growing number of people as well as companies start to hire the services of security guards to protect their properties from people with criminal intentions. As a result, licensed and competent security guards are in high demand.
We noticed that a lot of people are seeing the opportunities and want to start working as a security guard, but they don't know how and where to get started. The most common obstacle is obtaining the security guard license. Anyone working in the US security industry needs to carry a state-certified license in order to legally do their job. Because licensing is regulated on a state level rather than a nation wide level, many people find it hard to find the right information for the state they are living in...

That's where The Security Guard Licensing Blog comes in. With our blog, we want to provide detailed and step-by-step guides on how to obtain a security guard license for the state you want to be working in. We think that by sharing our combined knowledge and experience of almost 80 years, we can be of great help to fresh security guards.

Make sure to check for updates on a regular basis, as we will do our very best to add all of the 50 states by the end of the year. You shouldn't take that as a promise though, maybe i'm being overconfident here, and my fellow security guards will always make me remember this... Anyway, here are a few links to get you startet already. We've got the security guard licensing WikiSpace which houses a lot of valuable information. Next in the line is another one you don't want to miss when you're starting out as a security guard, an article about the current security guard equipment standards. It's a very valuable article because it illustrates what kinds of equipment security guards may or may not carry, depending on their license. You might also want to take a look at the security guard page on Wikipedia, where you'll find some interesting facts about the job as a security guard. Until another update, keep it safe ;)
