Services for Security Officers

I'M ALREADY WORKING AS A SECURITY OFFICER. WHY SHOULD I TAKE THIS TRAINING COURSE?
As a result of the Security Officer Registration Act (SORA) passed in 2004, all security officers employed in NJ must be registered with, and certified by, the NJ State Police. In order to be certified as a Security Officer, you must have 24 hours of initial training, and in order to be re-certified every two years, you must take an 8 hour refresher course.

WHY SHOULD I GO TO AFI SECURITY TRAINING INSTITUTE FOR MY TRAINING?
Our instructors all have experience in this field, and can give you the benefit of their experience in addition to the required class material. In addition, we offer a choice between a 3 day course, or if you're working, we can offer an extended class in the evenings. Additionally, if there are a number of people from the same company attending the same class, there may be a discount. Please have your employer contact us for details.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER REASONS I SHOULD GO TO AFI SECURITY TRAINING INSTITUTE FOR MY TRAINING?
Our classes conform to the number of classroom hours required by law under the Security Officer Registration Act.  Beware of instructors or schools that tell you they can teach you in less time than the 24 hours for initial training or 8 hours for renewal training. That’s why our 24 hr class takes three 8 hour days.  Be aware that if an instructor (or school) tells you it’s a two day course, that should mean two 12 hour days.  If it’s substantially less than that, you might be getting ripped off.  The same holds for the renewal/re-certification classes:  8 hours, not 6 or 4.

Also, we provide you with a training manual/textbook at no additional charge, which is yours to keep and to refer to after you complete the class, so that you can concentrate on the lessons/discussions and not on taking notes
.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE ME A JOB AFTER I COMPLETE THE TRAINING?
No instructor or school should be able to guarantee any student a job, so beware of any school or instructor who guarantees you a job after you complete the training.  We do provide our graduates with a listing of companies we work with who like to hire our graduates since they know you’ve been given comprehensive training, but we never know who’s hiring.  We also send out (via e-mail) job postings when our clients are in hiring mode.

Also beware of any school or instructor who tries to talk you into taking unnecessary or expensive courses not required under SORA.  You might want to check with your potential employer to see if those courses are really needed for the job.

DO I HAVE TO GO TO AFI FOR MY TRAINING?
Normally, yes. But if your employer has 10 or more officers to be trained in one class, we can make arrangements to conduct the training at your employer's place of business. Please have your employer contact us.
