All of our guards are certified in firearms, we follow the curriculum of a few NRA courses, and we also incorporate several hours of training in dynamic scenarios that each guard could face in real life. Also, our guards are trained in less-than-lethal options such as Taser and OCAT for those circumstances that may be needed. Finally, although we hope to never have to utilize it, a handcuffing Technique called PATH is taught nationally. All PPS training standards are reviewed annually and assesed to make sure we are on top of our game at industry standards.

There are multiple processes of how to become a guard in Colorado. Unlike a lot of states, we do not have one state license. We have multiple license requirements per various locations we work in. For example, the city of Colorado Springs requires all guards to be sponsored by an employer and complete 8 hours of Basic Security Officer Training, 16 hours at a minimum of Firearms Training, 20 hours if you want to be able to conceal. These are the minimum training requirements for Colorado Springs. In order to get licensed in Denver you also must be sponsored and must complete the mandatory 16 hours of Basic Security Guard Training and the optional firearms training requirements if your agency requires you to be armed. There are many other locations in Colorado that have company and or individual guard requirements. It’s best to contact the security company you are interested in and ask what they require to become licensed with them.
