Actually, it’s possible to get the ball rolling on the Security Guard field while taking the training course. For instance, in California, it is mandatory to have the license, but it is possible to make a start after taking the first 8-hour training course on “Power of Arrest”. After initial 8-hour training, the licensee can work as a guard and continue on-the-job training in most states. You can complete your 40 initial hours for a security license while maintaining a security guard job. That allows you some freedom and flexibility to improve yourself while bringing home the bacon.
