With the old DPS-RSD Level-2 testing and training process, being what it was prior to 2010 (online and at home), and the new Level-2 course not much better ( and given in a couple of hours), we consider this very little to no official training; as such, our company’s minimum requirement is that you must have proof of completion of a Level-3 (45-hour course), or completed such class within 30 days – whether you intend on becoming armed or not. We want to ensure you have received more than the tiny drop of training provided in a Level-2 class before considering you “fully trained”.

We thank you for your interest in our security company. Current openings are listed on
