How to Get Your Florida Security Licenses

Florida Security License

Florida Security LicenseThe Class D Security License is required by the state of Florida for any security officer seeking security jobs in the private security industry. An individual can only obtain a Class D Security License if they undergo security guard training at a licensed security school. This unarmed security training will qualify you to obtain the State security license.

The Security Training Group is a licensed security school that specializes in training for security officers. We offer classes that provide fundamental instruction through both engaging lectures and practical exercises. During the security D license course, students are trained in the basic principles of security including patrol practices, physical defense, access control, terrorism awareness, and procedures for emergency situations. Areas for skill development include safety awareness, report writing, customer service, and team cooperation.

Students learn security guard training from the best and most experienced instructors. These instructors are veterans of the US military and law enforcement backgrounds. Our instructors bring unique, real-world experience to the classroom and, with readily available study materials, equipment for use by students, realistic practice scenarios, and a productive classroom environment, our security course provides the most advanced groundwork for students who wish to join the private security industry.
