The California Code of Regulations is very specific concerning certificates for security officer training modules.
Division 7 of Title 16 Section 7583 of the California Code of Regulations: The certificate shall identify the course(s) taken, the number of hours of training provided, identification of the issuing entity, name of the individual and instructor and a date, and state that the course(s) comply with the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Skills Training Course for Security Guards. The certificate shall be serially numbered for tracking.
Please make sure that all certificates that you are accepting from employees and that you are issuing to officers comply with all requirements. Included as a benefit of membership, CALSAGA members have access to the CALSAGA Training Database. The database allows trainers to track officer’s training and to generate compliant certificates.
