Security Guard Licensing and Training ServicesSonoma, Napa, Mendocino and Marin Counties
General Terms and Conditions
Services Offered by Weinstein Security, Inc.
The Training Course offered by WSI is intended to satisfy the 8 hour “Power to Arrest” skills training course required of all applicants for a Security Guard registration with the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (“BSIS”). WSI does not issue nor does it have any control over the issuance of a Security Guard license from the BSIS (a “License”). While WSI is a licensed private patrol operator, it is not certified as a training facility by the BSIS to provide Firearm or Baton training courses. Once an applicant has passed the initial licensing course and has been fingerprinted, information on licensing status can be found by contacting the BSIS at 800-953-5210.
What to bring to the licensing course
Be prepared to bring a current, valid CA driver’s license, your social security number and the final payment of $182 fee in cash or credit card. We DO NOT accept checks. Restrooms and water are available in the facility. Smoking is not allowed in the facility or within 25 feet of the doors & windows of the building. For the shorter 2-day classes, please do not bring food. For the full-day class, you should bring snacks and/or a bag lunch for the meal breaks. You must be prompt to return from lunch, therefore we recommend you do not leave the area for the 30 minute meal break. If the weather is nice, there are benches outside to enjoy your lunch.
Refresher Courses are interactive self-study. No need to come into our facility for a live course. The materials are provided to you and an instructor is available for questions. You return the exam for grading. Once passed, you will receive a certificate of completion.
