Some good courses for security officers include the Pre-Assignment Training course offered through Liberty Security Training Institute, Inc. and Security Officer Core Subjects Entry-Level, states the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. Different states have different licensing and continuing education requirements, so security officers should review the requirements for their individual states to determine which courses to take.
The Pre-Assignment Training course is an 8-hour course in New York offered through Liberty Security Training Institute, Inc., notes the website. The Pre-Assignment course is one of the two required courses for certification within the program.
Because each state has different licensing and continuing education requirements, security officers can view requirements through the state government websites, such as the New York and Virginia criminal justice services websites.
