The expert instructors at Security Guard Exchange don't just want you to complete all the prerequisites for becoming a security guard, they want to help you find the job itself. Thus, in addition to posting job listings and familiarizing students with licensing requirements at locations across the country, they conduct classes that range from the NRA First Steps pistol orientation to concealed-carry sessions. To cater to those seeking specific licenses, they also oversee training in several levels of intensity for future armed and unarmed security officers.
