Florida security guard and firearms training you can trust
After years of service in south Florida, the security guard training programs at VSS Security & Weapons Academy have gained strong credibility and a reputation for honesty, thoroughness and integrity. That’s not the case with every “school” that prepares students for work as an armed security guard.
Recently a state investigation found more than 2,000 working security guards with fraudulent firearms certifications that the state says came from instructors who were licensed to teach firearms and security guard courses. This will never be the case at VSS.
First of all, we’re a state-certified training facility. That means the State of Florida knows about us and everything we do, and they approve it. Second, before anyone comes to work for us as an instructor, he or she is fully checked, confirmed and tested. Thirdly, VSS will never give a certificate of completion of an armed security officer course unless the student has clearly demonstrated a definite knowledge of all the disciplines covered in the training materials.
When you launch your career at VSS, you’re ensured of a program that meets every Florida regulation for security guard training and firearms training. Whether it’s the 40-hour Florida State Security D License Course for unarmed security officers, or the 28-hour course that leads to a Florida State Security G License for armed security guards, you’ll work only with top-flight instructors with proven and verifiable expertise in their fields.
