LJB Security Training

We offer security training that is PROFESSIONAL and AFFORDABLE.
Our most popular CT security officer training course is the mandated 8 hour security training class for security officers or guards in the state of Connecticut to become a security officer in CT.

CT Security license classes start in the morning and by the end of the day, you will receive a folder containing everything you need to go to the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection and get your license (CT State Guard Card) except fingerprints, which can be obtained at CT Dept of Emergency Services & Public Safety for a small fee. The folder includes Connecticut Public Act 08-73 (concerning CT security officer training & licensing), directions to where you get your license, a current list of employers in CT that do a lot of hiring for security officers assembled personally by Lou at LJB Security Training, and a webpage with hundreds of jobs for security officers in CT updated daily. The difference between LJB Security Training and any other companies is I will show you where the jobs are and how to get them! The rest is simply up to you. Understand it’s a full-time job to get a full-time job. Factually there are hundreds of jobs for security guards in Connecticut every week! Don’t wait, let’s get you started by registering for the next CT Guard Card Class!

LJB Security Training is committed to you and all of its clients. We are committed to training, preparing, and certifying you for your new adventure with a career as a Security Officer. The Security Profession is one to be proud of. Please call with any and all questions or concerns.

In 2004 Connecticut passed a law mandating the training & licensing of Uniformed Security Officers.

The Act also requires that all private security training must be approved and that all private security trainers be certified by The Department of Emergency Services & Public Protection.

The lesson plan provided by LJB Security Training is approved by The Dept of Emergency Services & Public Protection who is also responsible for the licensing and registration of all security officers and private security Instructors.

2018 and Beyond
LJB Security Training and Consulting continues to lead CT’s security training industry. We train more certified security officers than anyone else in the state, and our graduates are in great demand from security companies throughout the state!
