Take the Next Step Toward a career as a private security officer
Are you ready to work in one of the fastest growing fields of safety and security? Becoming a private security office may be perfect for you. Security officers work to protect people and property and also deal with emergencies. You don’t need a degree to start working in the private security field, but a good general education will be helpful. You will need a Class D license from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to work in the State of Florida. A security officer needs to be mature and responsible. It will also help if you are a polite and helpful person.
Getting a Private Security Officer Certification is an important way to fast-track your career. The Florida Research and Economic Information Database Application projects a 20.1 percent increase in the private security officer field between 2015 and 2023
