The Long Island Training Center (LITC) is a state of the art facility that offers courses for employers and individuals.
The first required course is an 8 Hour Pre-Assignment Training course. This is a general introductory course. Upon successful completion of this course the guard is issued a training certificate. This certificate must accompany the security guard's registration application when submitted to the Department of State. Once the application is submitted, the guard has 90 days to complete the second training course, which is the 16 hour On The Job Training Course. We will assist you with the New York State guard application and scheduling of your Electronic Fingerprint appointment. Upon completion of the Eight Hour Pre-Assignment Training Course, an examination is required for successful completion of this course.
