I am a 53 year old male. Is that too old to become a security guard. I recently graduate from a medical assistant program and I am CPR certified. Problem medical providers want you to have at least one year of experience and speak Spanish which I do not. I also have a BS in management. I am currently on unemployment which will be running out soon.

What is the average starting pay in Southern California if anyone knows. If I did want to become a security guard I would do the 40 hours online.

Have you thought about getting a CDL license? Not sure what's up in California but here there are jobs at senior or disability centers to drive transport vans that pay reasonably well. You need to be CPR certified, but you are already.
