SLED Security Officer Training
We are happy to offer training for individuals who need to get their Primary Basic or Primary Plus training from a SLED-accredited instructor. This training is necessary to work as a security officer for a private company, or for an organization that has a proprietary license. We host the classroom training at our office in Downtown Greenville and the firearms portions at our range in North Taylors.
If you are an aspiring security officer, receiving the SLED Primary Basic and Plus training will be necessary to work in South Carolina. Although you can't work as a security officer on your own, if you have been hired by a licensed company, you can receive your training from us. Our instructors are certified by SLED to teach both Primary Basic and Plus classes using the SafeguardSC curriculum.
If you are a licensed security company or have a proprietary license, we can offer classes specific to your employees to get them licensed with SLED's various curriculums. We offer Primary, Primary Plus, and supplemental training as needed. We can offer these classes at our office or yours.
