Online 8 Hour Annual Security Course for Guards

In light of social distancing restrictions due to Covid-19, we are now approved by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (NYS DCJS) to offer this course online, via Zoom.


8 Hour Annual In-Service Training Course

The 8 hour annual in service training course for security guards must be completed within 12 calendar months from completion of the 16 Hour On-the-Job Training Course, and annually thereafter. Licensed Security Guards are required to complete the 8 hour annual security guard training in order to keep your security guard registration card in good standing, under State laws in NY.

Guardian Group Services is one of the first training schools to be approved by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services to teach the 8 hour annual security course online, as well as all the Security Guard Training courses. Our instructors are professional, highly-qualified, and certified by the New York State DCJS. 

This Security Guard 8 Hour Annual Class is designed for students who have completed the 8-Hour Pre-Assignment Training course as well as the 16-Hour On-the-Job Course, with the objective to refresh and cement important concepts. It provides the student with updated and enhanced information on the duties and responsibilities of a security guard.

Topics covered include:

  • Role of the Security Guard
  • Legal Powers and Limitations
  • Emergency Situations
  • Communications and Public Relations
  • Access Control
  • Report Writing
  • Ethics and Conduct
  • Active Shooter Scenarios

Students ask us all the time, "where can I find an 8 hour annual security course near me?" With our live online classes, there’s no need to travel to an in-person training session. All you have to do is book and take the class fully online. Online classes are available weekly via Zoom on weekdays, weekends and even weeknights.

Currently, we offer our online Zoom sessions Thursday mornings and evenings as well as Saturday mornings. A link will be sent via email ahead of the class. Once successfully completed, a certificate of completion will be sent.
