Northridge, Calif. (April 21, 2020)—The demand for security services is increasing as medical facilities, grocery/big box stores, banks, manufacturers, commercial buildings, hotels, strip malls and residential communities are ramping up security and safety measures in light of the COVID-19 crisis. For individuals looking to embark on a security guard career in California, Access Control Security (ACS) offers a complete online security guard training program through www.247GuardTraining.com.
Training components include courses in legal and liability issues, arrest capabilities, incident prevention and emergency procedures. Verbal skills, crisis intervention, observation and patrol techniques are some of the additional subjects covered.
To begin security guard training, applicants must be 18 years or older, have at least a high school diploma, a clean criminal history and pass Department of Justice and FBI background checks.
Once course testing is successfully completed and submitted to the state, applicants receive a "Guard Card" that allows the individual to begin work as a security guard. Continuing education is required.
"The use of security guards has always been an important means to reduce crime, maintain crowd control and respond during an emergency," says Reza Jalala, ACS director of security and operations. "Now, our guards are taking on additional duties including monitoring the number of people entering retail and business outlets, performing temperature checks and ensuring the public and workers following state safety guidelines."
Jalala notes that, "Becoming a security guard can be a stepping-stone to a law enforcement career, a solid job while attending college or a career unto itself. It's important work, especially during this time of crisis."
ACS and partner associates employ over 1,000 security guards in California and Arizona who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
