Step 5: How to Get a Live Scan

How to Get a Live Scan?  Now that I have finished the Powers to Arrest and Weapons of Mass Destruction courses and received the certificates for them, I can apply to get my Guard Card by filling out some paperwork and getting my Live Scan done. This is what I did to get my Live Scan.  I got the steps from the “How to Get a CA Guard Card” found on eduGuard’s to get a live scan

1.       There are two ways to fill out the Security Guard Application:

a) Print out and mail in this application but it will take a lot longer than filling out the application online using the BreEZe.

b) Apply online using the BSIS BreEZe and it should only take a few days to get your cleared status for guard card so you cna go to work!

*If you are going to Register to Become a PSO, please use this link for your correct links to forms.

2.       Fill out three copies of the Live Scan Form for Security Guards and go to your nearest Live Scan Site. Need that location? Check here.

3.       Bring a photo ID and money or a debit card to pay the processing and application fees for BSIS, DOJ, and FBI.

4.       Mail in the copy of the Live Scan form and if you already haven’t sent the application, send them together.

Here is a video of the Live Scan Process that I liked.

*This LiveScan is located at 5150 Fair Oaks Blvd #101, Carmichael CA, inside the UPS Store.

Once your DOJ and FBI background checks have cleared and your application has been accepted BSIS will post your cleared security guard status online here at the “BSIS website“. You can then print your cleared security guard status and present it to your prospective employer for employment. Note: You do not need your actual guard card in hand to apply for employment, the print out is fine. After the cleared status you will receive your actual guard card in the mail in approximately 10 to 15 days.

Hope this helped to clear up any confusion there can be on the Live Scan Process. Time to get ready to find a job!

Step 3: Purchase my Guard Card Package

I have to say I am getting excited to start my security training. I’m also really glad my training is online so I don’t have to go anywhere while I study. In my last blog  I decided to purchase eduGuard’s Package C: the full 40 hours because of the $ savings I will get by purchasing all 40 hours at once. Plus with their current promotion, I couldn’t not buy now.

Here is how to purchase eduGuard’s packages:

1.       If you didn’t purchase as your registered, Click Log In and log in using the log in created for you by Registering (Step 2).

2.       Choose your Package from left column. You can look into the details of the package to the right of the lettered column.

eduGuard's Purchase Page. Register and then click Purchase Now!

3.       Basic credit/debit card section

4.       Confirmation page means you are done! Get to training!

Once you have purchased, everybody is required to take eduGuard’s Prerequisite Course before starting any course. I have already taken it. It shows you how to use the program, where to find things on your dashBOARD, etc. I now feel ready to take my Guard Card Courses.


Step 4: Guard Card Courses – 8 hours

Step 2: Register To Get Your Guard Card (Choosing your eduGuard package)

Joel here and I have decided to get my California Guard Card.  I need 40 hours of security training certificates.  I see eduGuard’s different course packages provide some options to get the training and certificates I need so I can get my Guard Card.  All packages are good for one year after I purchase so I have lots of time to get this training done.  Before I register, I need to select a course package.  I want the one that fits my budget best.

  • I can purchase package A, $49, which has the courses for the initial 8 hours of courses required to apply for my Guard Card.  Once I get my guard card I can be hired which is awesome but wow, I see I will need more training within 30 days after getting hired.
  • Package B, $79, has the courses for the Mandatory 16 hours of training and all the Electives to choose from for the required final 16 hours of Electives. Buying package A and then B would fulfill the 40 hours of required initial training.

This looks like a pretty cool way to go.

  1. I wouldn’t have to spend all the money at one time.
  2. If I don’t have a job lined up right away, I can purchase A now and purchase B after I am making some money.

Hey but wait, I can save $ with Package C – 40 Hours at $99.  I can get all required 40 hours, and have access for one full year to over 80 hours of courses that I can take any time I want.  This will give me time to find a job while I study.  That’s a big enough savings that I will choose Package C.
