NOTE: The $100 Firearm Application fee payable to the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) is NOT included in the class fee, and must be paid by the parcipitant after successful completion of the BSIS Exposed Firearms Permit Class. The cost of ammunition is also NOT included in the class fee, and must be purchased by the parcipitant before Day 2 of the BSIS Exposed Firearms Class. Lastly, a Firearm Assessment is required by the BSIS before the Firearms Permit is issued. The assessment will evaluate whether an applicant possesses appropriate judgement, restraint, and self-control for the purpose of carrying and using a firearm during the course of his or her security guard duties. The cost of the assessment is $60. 

Applicant's must also complete a new Live Scan Background Check for Security Guard with Firearms, which can be done with us during Day 1 of the class for $107. You have the option to add the Live Scan for Security Guard with Firearms during check out. 

BSIS approved two-day (16 hours) firearm training for the Security Guard to apply for the Exposed Firearm Permit and work as an Armed Security Guard. Parcipitants must be 18 years of age or older, a United States Citizen or permanent legal resident (with proof), and be a licensed security guard or applicant for a license as security guard. All fees are Non-Refundable.

Bring your own weapon or use ours. Parcipitants must provide their own ammunition (100 rounds) and hearing/eye protection. Parcipitant's that wish to have more than one caliber on their permit, can qualify with additional calibers for a fee of $30 per additional caliber. At check out, you will have the option to add additional calibers. Participants will need to provide 100 rounds of ammunition for each additional caliber. 

If using our firearm, participants have the opportunity to qualify with one of the following calibers: 9 mm, .40, .45 or .38.
