Armed private security officers are required to complete four (4) hours of firearm continuing education every six (6) months.

The current time periods are from:
December 1st, 2016 to May 31st, 2017
June 1st, 2017 to November 30th, 2017

If an armed private security officer fails to complete the required four (4) hours of firearm continuing education within the six (6) month periods shown above, they receive "Penalty Hours".

An individual with an armed private security license who fails to complete the required four (4) hours of continuing firearms education within the appropriate six (6) month period will be required to complete one and one-half times (4 x 1 1/2 = 6) the number of continuing firearms education hours the licensee was deficient for the reporting period.

If an armed private security officer failed to complete the four (4) hours during the six month period of December 1st, 2016 to May 31st, 2017, they must now complete six (6) hours for that period, PLUS the regular four (4) hours required during the next six (6) month period of June 1st, 2017 to November 30th, 2017.

For safety reasons, students must use a Strong Side Holster only! The following holsters and carry styles are NOT permitted: • Fabric holsters that can collapse when the firearm has been drawn • Cross draw holster • Shoulder holster • Pocket holster • Ankle holster • Blackhawk Serpa and similar holsters which require the use of the index finger to deactivate a retention device (see more about this type of holster under "What is a SERPA Holster?"

A SERPA holster has a retention device that locks the handgun's trigger guard into the holster. The handgun is drawn by pressing a button with the index or "trigger" finger. Putting pressure on the button and then quickly drawing the handgun meant there was a possibility that your finger could slip into the trigger guard, negligently press the trigger and there have been incidents where an individual has shot themselves in the leg while drawing.
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) conducted a study and has banned SERPA holsters on all their ranges stating, "Holsters that possess a single tension release mechanism that is located proximal the trigger guard area of the firearm are problematic and pose a safety hazard." see study here.
Safety is our number one concern. For this reason, we do not allow these holsters in our training courses.

All Private Security Officer Licenses expire on November 30th of every EVEN numbered year (2018) unless the license was issued within one (1) year of the expiration date.

If a security license was issued on November 29th, 2017, it will expire on November 30th, 2018.
If a security license was issued on December 1st, 2017, it will expire on November 30th, 2020.
