Happy Thanksgiving from Basic Firearms Training!
The 8-hour BSIS Power to Arrest course is a state mandated course for all persons seeking employment as a security officer in California. Successful completion of the Power to Arrest course allows otherwise legally qualified applicants to obtain a security guard registration license, or "Guard Card" as it is commonly called, from the Bureau of Security & Investigative Services (BSIS). This license allows the license holder to begin employment as an unarmed security officer. However, additional training is required to continue to work as a security officer. Please visit this BSIS page for the most up to date security officer licensing requirements :
