The State of Florida requires applicants to have the security D and G license to work private armed security. Each security license, D and G, are separate licenses that allow a security officer to work in an unarmed (D) or armed (both D and G) capacity. To apply for the class G, the applicant must already have or be in the process of applying for the Florida class D security license. At Proteus Training Institute, we provide training that meets and exceeds the Florida Security certification standards as set forth by the Department Agriculture Division of Licensing.

Included with the Guard Course (D), 40 hours, we will provide training and certification in CPR/AED, Basic first aid, Stop the bleed, hand cuffing techniques, less lethal OC (Pepper) Spray, Taser.  These are standard with your registration fee.  Payment is made at the facility on the first day of the training session.  Contact us at or 904-299-3534 option 3, to learn more and inquire about course rates.
