Security Guard

The need to protect citizens, businesses and property is more prevalent than ever. The Security Training Program at DCC will prepare you to work many positions in New York state including bouncer, doorman, store detective, loss prevention officer, bodyguard, VIP protection, campus security officer, armored car guard, watchman, security officer/guard and security specialist.

We offer three different NY state-approved programs depending on whether you are new to the industry, looking to recertify or keep your certification active. Our students are diverse and include retired executives, teachers and law enforcement as well as those looking to start a career in security, as there are many opportunities for advancement and promotion.

The 8-Hour Pre-Assignment, 8-Hour Annual In-Service, and the 16-Hour On-the-Job Trainings will all be offered online. You will receive further procedural and safety guidelines via email. These are mandatory guidelines and must be followed if you are to come on campus.
