*How to obtain a California Guard Registration card

California Security Officers are regulated by the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services.  All applicants must complete a course of training approved by BSIS.  The applicant then undergoes a Livescan fingerprint background check to disclose any disqualifying criminal offenses.  For more information on obtaining a guard registration card, review the latest Security Guard Registration Factsheet from the Department of Consumer Affairs.

Take your Guard Card Training online!

Guard West Security Services does not endorse any particular company to use for taking the training, but there are many available. Just Google “California online guard card training” and select from one of the schools given.  Once you complete the training, you will need to submit Livescan fingerprints. Fill out a Request for Life Scan Service, print it out, and take it to your closest Livescan facility.

Once all of the steps are completed, you will need to check the BSIS website for the status of your application.  Once approved, you may print the temporary registration and work with it until you receive your permanent guard registration card.
