Private Security Services Career Studies Certificate

The Private Security Services Career Studies Certificate (CSC) prepares individuals for entry-level positions, as unarmed or armed security officers and private investigators, in the proprietary and contract aspects of private security.

The program provides current security officers and investigators the additional skills which can lead to advancement into first-line supervision and management positions within the field of private security.

Successful completion of the private security courses (armed security officer, unarmed security officer, private investigator, and firearms training) will meet state-mandated training requirements for registration in each respective area with DCJS, thus making the student eligible for employment in these respective areas.
