  • Are you a NY State approved school?
    Yes, S&S Security Training and Services is a certified and approved school. You can find us on the NY State Division of Criminal Justice Services Security Guard Program List of Approved Schools (page 4).
  • How do I get my NY Security License?
    In order to get your license, you need to be 18 years or older, have a valid social security number and a NY State ID. If you live out of state, we can help you with getting a photo on file with the DMV. ​ You must take the NY State DCJS mandated introductory class, the 8-hour Pre-Assignment class, you must have your fingerprints processed, and finally mail your application to the state with the Pre-Assignment certificate, your fingerprint receipt and a money order for $36. The 16-hour On-The-Job training class is not required to GET the license, but it is required by the state once you have the license. Also, having both the Pre-Assignment and 16-Hour OJT certificates will help you get a job. We have a Complete Package for $400 that includes the cost of everything (Pre-Assignment + 16-Hour OJT + Fingerprints+ Application Assistance + F-01 Fire Guard Test Prep + additional services from Essential Employees) except for the $36 fee that you send to the state for processing. We also have a Basic Package for $195 that includes just the Pre-Assignment, Fingerprints and Application Assistance. You can sign up for classes or packages here:
