Course Information

The armed guard card refresher class is an 8 hour course designed for already licensed armed guards to satisfy their requirement to qualify on the range annualy. 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, a minimum of 50 rounds of ammunition will be used during this course. At the conclusion of the course, for those interested and qualified, we will assist students with their application for an Arizona Concealed Carry Permit (CCW).

At the conclusion of the course, students who have completed the course requirements are eligible for an Arizona Concealed Weapons Permit (CCW). AZSG will provide the paperwork and required documents at no charge upon request. The permit fee is currently $60.

Students will review the basics of marksmanship principles, escalation and de-escalation of force issues as well as using deadly physical force as justified by law among other things. This is a qualification course, it only reviews the basics and does not provide the required instruction on how to shoot for beginners.
