Yea, well I called some of those and they do not have immediate classes and also I would be stuck working for just them for a period of time. I already have a job lined up starting at $16 an hour if I get the certificate so why would I want to get stuck working for the $8 and $9 an hour they said they are paying even if they gave me the training right away? Really dude. I found a couple of schools on Long Island that charges $60 - $70 for the training, they are state registered to give the course, and two of them give the course several times a week. NO WAITING -- NO TRAP. They also helo get the armed guard license and conmduct the required training which, who knows, maybe I'll pursue later on.

Good luck to everyone, and the company that I find that generally pays the most to start is not listed on here is SUMMIT SECURITY, one of the biggest. Although that is not the company who will be hiring me, two of my friends work there and they love it.

21 JUMP STREET in Cranbury, New Jersey said: Future recruits- Go to

Allied Barton Security Service, USA
Metro one Protective Services
Securitas Security Services
APG Security Services
Huff master
US Security Associates
All provide you're NY License in two eight hour sessions and hire you on the spot for work with above companies, they are contracted security companies hire to provide security services on all level and they are licensed through out the country. There needs to be a job opening FIRST, Go and apply for any job opening they may have, stay away from guard training schools, go apply DIRECTLY to a SECURITY COMPANY DOING THE HIRING. RESEARCH ALL SECURITY COMPANIES AND JUMP INTO THE GAME. Good luck

This is true I agree. These companies who want you to pay 200 to 300 dollars just for your license ,8 and 16 hour pluse fireguard are no good. Most companies that are during the hiring will help you out with these credentials.

Blue Steel in Brooklyn. I do not remember the address. If you Google Blue Steel Security it wil come up. I know its downtown Brooklyn on one of the side streets. I think its Hoyt sreet. I'm not sure. Please just google it. This is one company I recommend for anyone who is trying to get into the security field and need thier credentials. They have reasonable prices and they do not try and con you or anything. This is a legit company if you want to get all of your credentials with out being scammed. I do not know if they will place you on a job but, I do know that what ever you need and what ever classes you need whether its to recertify or to just get started Blue Steel is the place.

Well Jason, just trying to steer recruits away from the frauds and the dregs, I'm an Armed Officer with the govt with an high level secret clearance TS/SCI scope, I've been a player for a long time and know all the security contractors from Iraq and back. I do not get any further east of NYC unless my friends have a side gig and could use some help for E/P or High Risk Protection gig, I wish well dude.

My main point is this: Go to you're state police site and call and inquiry about their policy and the companies that they may know because "they" in the end have to issue you you're state license.

Stay Frosty.dude.

There are alot of security companies. You can try summit Security.
Allied Barton, Appolo Security. G4 Security. Theres alot of them out there you have to google Security companies and you will see what will come up. This is better than going to an agency and spending money only to get reffered to these companies. So get rid of the middle man, who is cheating you out of your money and go straight to the source.

Is being a security guard dangerous in any way I was considering, this agency that I called said they charge $60 and they give you uniforms.

First of all don't look for any security guard jobs on craigslist, they are all trade schools pretending to be security staffing companies. First the call you and tell you they would like to interview you, but don't forget to bring $80.00 for your fireguard. It's best to go directly to the websites of companies who you know use security and sign up with them directly.

No places that I know of do it for free. You're in New York, so you can go to Workforce1 and get cheap training and free job placement. You'd have to check on their Website to see when they offer the workshops.

You can also go to John Jay College, on 59th St. in Manhattan, and take the training for less money than most private places charge.

Security Instructor in New York, New York said: If I understand your comment correctly, you are saying that you had a NYS Security Guard license, but that it expired. If this is the case, then whether or not you need to reapply depends on how long ago the licensed expired. NYS Security Licenses are good for two years, and every two years they must be renewed (NYS feee for renewal is $25.00). Once your license expires you can no longer legally work, but NYS gives a 6-month grace period to renew the license. Once the license is expired for more than six months, however, NYS wipes the slate clean and you have to reapply by going through the entire original application process. The 8-hour pre-assignment class cerificates never expire, so if you did have to reapply, you can still use your pre-assignment certificate regardless of how many years ago you took the course.

went to this location last year took 8 and 16 hr with star honest gentlemen no lies they are legit they train you ps this was second time and yes liscensing board albany approved my app gave me liscence they can not give definate placement only on ewho goes to interviews can give oneself a job by earning it bay ridge security gentleman at 123 williams street can take care of all on spot no lines no wait also any nut who tried on time security find them hold them i got some suprise for them from the first time heh heh heh star is tiny but darn true to the name honest and yes answers all questions no matter how crazy love these people

lmao BS!! $15 an hour huh

-As previously mentioned, the 8-hour pre-assignment course must be completed before licensing.
-within 90-days of beginning work, the 16-hour on-the-job training course must be completed.
-every year, beginning with the year after licensing, the 8-hour annual in-service course must be taken.

Hey Everyone I would Like to say that I myself have been scammed by 1st national career center inc. on 327 west 36th st btw 8th and 9th ave in manhattan. If you're considering going there to become a security guard do not. They are scammers and just want to take your hard earned money. After researching I learned there are legitimate career centers like Job Corps that will offer these same services for FREE . young adults 24 and under can take your 8 & 16 hrs without paying hundreds of dollars. Also If you want you can go to ANY local college and take the same classes 8 & 16 and fireguard classes at a fraction of the price so def do your research. I haven't been refunded the $400 I gave just yet, but I'm hopeful. I'm taking action right now by reporting them to the Department of Consumer Affairs, I've also reported them to the Better Business Bureau and the New York Department of State. Take Action, explain your claim and hopefully you'll get your money back!

Peter Da Gr8t in Brooklyn, New York said: I moved backed to NY from VA where I also did corrections and security. I had all of my licensing including tactical firearms and CCW.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news when I tell you, you're going to have to start from scratch when you get up here. When I arrived I applied for several high grade security jobs and was laughed at when I told them what credentials I had including my security clearance.

You are not going to find much help other than this website and the official NYS website so beware of what I refer to as the GyPsY security companies. Those are the ones that pretend to be security companies but are nothing more than security training schools (if that much!) that severely over charge you for your licensing SO BE CAREFUL when choosing a security school for your licensing. Your best bet is to start at this site criminaljustice.state.ny.us/ops/sgtraining/index.htm

Although I didn't get ripped off, a lot of other ppl did as you can tell by reading some of the posts. Also I don't know how professional the security LEO atmosphere is in FL but it was a culture shock coming back to NY from VA so I figure i'd give you a heads up. If you are in the Bklyn NY area and need info on a good security school let me know. Hope this helps and good luck with the custody case.

Hello..thanks for the info. I know it's been awhile since you posted this comment but I just wanted to know if you are still able to give any info about security schools in Brooklyn. Thanks.

LKW3 in Flushing, New York said: Any company that claims they are hiring for security officers, and then ask you for a fee, are scamming you. Never pay for a security guard job. You pay enough trying to get licensed. Beware of craigslist! Most of the advertisements are schools posing as employers. If the contact number area code begins with 347,917,646 or 631 it's most likely a school using personal numbers to deceptively recruit you. Lately they have been trying to use 212 and 718 area codes, but when they ask for a fee do like i do, just hang up the phone! Its a shame how scammers are getting so devious. Good luck!

I got my security guard license from a accredited college in New York. the problem is that they do not find you jobs after. If you go to an agency that trains they will get you some jobs. Not going to an agency I had trouble finding a job. I did put most company's hire through an agency. Fee is a problem so shop around.
I am looking get a security job in Connecticut. Where can I go.Thanks
