  • CA Guard Card & Guard Card Refresher Courses (8 Hours):  This is the introductory guard card instructional class incorporating powers to arrest, terrorism, and weapons of mass destruction training which was designed by the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services as a prerequisite to applying for a guard card to work in the security business. 

    • ATA guard card training surpasses the state ordered contents to incorporate additional lessons we deem important for newly licensed guards to know when first posted on a job site, such as conflict resolution and elements of security host training.
