CA Guard Card Renewal Procedure
You need to follow the BSIS CA guard card renewal procedure every 2 years. In order to keep your guard card and avoid fines from working without a valid Guard Card, the state of California requires that you take a continuing education (CE) class every year and then renew your Guard Card every 2 years. The Bureau of security and Investigative Services (BSIS) requires you to take additional or remedial 8 hours instruction in private security subject matter. Your can get your yearly training from an independent training provider or your current employer. Your annual training may repeat previous course(s) or be on topics applicable to private security work. Training in use of specific types of batons or a four hour refresher course every other year may also be used to meet the continuing education requirements. You should keep our certificate of completion for your continuing education credits in case you change employers during the year. Your new employer will want proof that you completed your required training.
