            In order to obtain a Security Guard Licence, you must take this training and pass a Department of Justice written test which costs $25 each time you write it.  The cost of your first test is included in your tuition.  You have three chances to pass this test.  If you are unsuccessful after three tries, you must retake the training in order to attempt the test again. 


            You must attend the entire course to be eligible to write the government licence test.  If you take time off during the course, you must make that lost time up on the next course by attending the missed time.

            IF YOU TAKE TIME OFF TO ATTEND INTERVIEWS, DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS OR PRAYERS, ETC., YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE THE LICENCE TEST.  

            So be ready to commit to the entire week and please don't ask for time off.

            You must take this course in the classroom with one of our instructors.  Home study is helpful but cannot be substituted for coming to class.  Government regulation requires your instructor to certify that you have attended the entire course before you can attempt the Security Guard licence test.
