What is the requirement for becoming a Bank security guard in California? 2

Security jobs in your ZIP code



Answer:

The Bureau of Security and Investigative Services issues the California Guard Card, which is valid for 2 years.

You have to approach the local office, armed with a Security Guard training of minimum 8 hours, with additional 32 hours needed, depending on the post you are applying for.

To become a bank security guard, you will need arms training and learn to fire a weapon. Once you have that, you have to undergo background check by getting fingerprinted by the card issuing authority.

Most companies require that their bank security guards possess a high school diploma or equivalent, a valid driver’s license for patrolling, a Security Officer license issued by the BSIS, CA, and BSIS issued valid Firearms Permit for .38 or .357 caliber weapons.

      Sikander, if you are located in the US, once you meet the training requirements, you can directly apply to the jobs posted on this website. If you are not located in the US, then you are not eligible to apply unless you acquire a legal status within the US.
