16 Hour Armed Oct 15th and 16th

The armed guard card class is a 16 hour course, over the span of 2 days (8 hours each day). All students must demonstrate a knowledge and proficiency of armed security guard issues by passing a written test with a minimum score of 70 percent at the conclusion of the class. Students will also be required to display shooting proficiency by firing a 50 round qualification and achieving a score of at least 70 percent. In total, 50 rounds of ammunition will be used during this course. This class will also satisfy the requirements for a renewal license every 2 years as the new and renewal courses are the same. Students must have completed unarmed training prior to taking this course! At the conclusion of the course, for those interested and qualified, we will assist students with their application for an Arizona Concealed Weapons Permit (CCW).


Important to Note

  • Students must have completed unarmed training prior to taking this course!
  • This is a qualification course, it only reviews the basics and does not provide the required instruction on how to shoot for beginners.
  • There will be no warm-up or practice shooting prior to qualification. Students are encouraged to train and practice before coming to class.
  • If you fail to qualify, you may be given a code to re-register for the next class at a reduced rate, at the instructor's discretion. If you fail to qualify a second time, you must re-register again at full cost.
