Employment as a Security Guard is excellent for those over 18 years old seeking their first job or as first employment for “newcomers” to the United States. A Security Guard needs good observation and “people skills”.
Your presence is a deterrent to criminal acts and if such acts accrue, your duty is to “observe and report” to law enforcement and you can also make a “citizen’s arrest” to detain until law enforcement arrives.
“Power of Arrest” (Guard Card) held on Tuesday 9am to 5pm is a 1 day course (8 hours) which covers responsibilities and duties of the Security Guard, the administration of the 45 question examination and training in terrorism “Weapons of Mass Destruction”
The "Power of Arrest" (Guard Card) can be useful even if you do not plan immediate employment, that in the event of a change in employment circumstance it would enable you to quickly get employment as a "Security Guard" in the current Private Secuirty Industry.
Provided are the BSIS guard card registration forms and the LIVESCAN FINGERPRINTING forms. The examination is an open-book test utilizing the “Power of Arrest” training manual.
Class Room space Limited - Pre-Registration Requested 510 898-5182 or email@example.com
Class Fee is $90.00 cash.
The required Guard Card Application Livescan Fingerprinting is offered by SUKAM LIVESCAN & PRINT, 905 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94710 which is across the street from the Security Guard Training Classroom.
Livescan Fingerprinting is $90.00 cash.
Upon completion of the course, you must send the provided forms to the State of California, Bureau of Security and Investigative Services with a fee of $50 to attain your permit.
Within the 1st Year of Registration there are in addition to “Power of Arrest” 16 hours of Mandatory Courses. Many Security Guard companies are only hiring Security Guards that have both the “Power of Arrest” class and the additional Mandatory Courses. These courses are available by arrangement. Please contact 510 898-5182 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.

CLASSES & TRAINING
The focus is on fundamental training to develop "skill sets" and to develop awareness and attitudes that will bring you safely through encounters. Any firearm or missile projection device generates a "cone of fire" about a common point of aim. Through handgun training/practice you should develop a 50 round 6" cone of fire at 15 yards. This develops the muscle memory and stamina to enable you to present effective fire and survive an encounter.
This ability is based on "The Interactive Act of Firing the Shot" which consists of Sight Alignment, Trigger Control, Grip. This training is based on Dry Firing techniques which can be done in the home and range Live Fire practice. Through your practice you will develop strength and muscle memory.
The only difference between Slow Fire and Tactical Rapid Fire is the reduction of the space between shots
Awareness and Knowledge creates preplanned responses to the encounter which presents "immediate" threat of death or great bodily harm to yourself or others. In this circumstance your response will be automatic and without hesitation. You will learn how to identify danger forming and to take action which gives you advantage.
At the end of the day, you will be Alive and Safe.
All classes require preregistration. Please contact us with a mailing address or email address so that you can receive a Registration packet.

NRA CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR COURSES
NRACertified Instructor Courses are given by an NRA Training Counselor. As an NRA Training Counselor I give a two day Certified Instructor Course every month in the one of following subjects: Pistol Instructor, Rifle Instructor and Chief Range Officer.
The 1st Day is the NRA Teaching Method TPI (Total Participant Involvement) which involves the whole classroom in interactive participation. During this day we study the different ways that an individual takes in instruction both verbal and non verbal. The 2nd Day applies TPI to a given subject, i.e. Pistol, Rifle, CRSO. The ideal class has 6 - 8 participants or 3-4 pairs. A pair will develop and present a presentation which is then commented on by the other students and then each of the other pairs will do the same. The Instructor Course fee which includes extensive NRA Student Material is $250.

CLEANING AND MAINTANANCE OF HANDGUNS
A well cleaned and maintained handgun is a dependable and useful tool. This process removes fouling and dryness that can prevent operation. It is also an opportunity for inspection of function to ensure reliability of operation. There are three types of firearm fouling: Carbon, Lead and Copper. Carbon and Lead fouling predominate in handguns. Also semi-auto pistols require lubrication to insure smooth operation of the slide for proper extraction/ejection of the fired casing and loading of the fresh shell
It is a good practice to follow use with systematic cleaning, lubrication, and inspection of function. Semi-auto pistols and revolvers each have specific areas which if neglected can cause malfunction.
The following instructions are based on the practices of NECO, a small engineering company which studied internal ballistics and developed tools and procedures to enhance.
Clear the pistol of all ammunition and place the ammunition in a place distant from the workplace. Break down the pistol and separate the barrel, slide and frame. The barrel should be cleaned preferably from the breach (rear) which prevents damage to the “crown” (front end) of the barrel. Loss of accuracy can be caused by the cleaning rod wearing the edge of the crown.
Take a brass rod and mount a bronze cleaning brush one caliber small than the caliber being cleaned i.e. 40 cal for a 45 ACP. Apply a cleaning fluid (Hoppes #9) to an 1 ½” cleaning square and wrapped it around the brush. Insert the patch covered brush into the bore of the barrel from the breach end and draw back and forth several times. The undersized brush pushes the cleaning patch tightly in and around the groves and lands of the bore. Repeat several times until the carbon blackness begins to clear. If there is heavy fouling apply both Hoppes #9 and J-B Bore Cleaner to a patch and continue cleaning. Then clear the bore with several applications of just Hoppes and finish with a dry patch. J-B Bore Cleaner is a mild non-embedding paste compound that cleans and polishes the bore.
With a tooth brush and cloth, clean with Hoppes the “feeding ramp” at the breach end of the bore.
Use patches and Hoppes to clean any fouling on the outside of the barrel and inside the slide. Clear these areas with a dry patch
Sparring apply Militec -1 with the needle applicator to the inside bearing surfaces of the slide and frame. These are the friction rubbed bright areas. Use only small drops. Common practice follows the rule of “more is better” which leads to a gummed up action. Militec-1 is an embedding lubrication which binds itself to the surface of the action through the heat of firing the pistol and retains the lubrication action for sometime. Reassembly the pistol and operate the action. It should operate free and easy.
Clear the revolver of all ammunition and place the ammunition in a place distant from the workplace. Open the cylinder from the frame. The barrel has to be cleaned from the “crown” (front end) of the barrel. When cleaning, keep the cleaning rod carefully centered in the bore to prevent damage to the “crown” (front end) of the barrel. Loss of accuracy can be caused by the cleaning rod wearing the edge of the crown.
Take a brass rod and mount a bronze cleaning brush one caliber small than the caliber being cleaned i.e. 32 cal for a 38 Special. Apply a cleaning fluid (Hoppes #9) to an 1 ½” cleaning square and wrapped it around the brush. Insert the patch covered brush into the bore of the barrel from the crown end and draw back and forth several times. The undersized brush pushes the cleaning patch tightly in and around the groves and lands of the bore. Repeat several times until the carbon blackness begins to clear. If there is heavy fouling apply both Hoppes #9 and J-B Bore Cleaner to a patch and continue cleaning. Then clear the bore with several applications of just Hoppes and finish with a dry patch. J-B Bore Cleaner is a mild non-embedding paste compound that cleans and polishes the bore. In the same manner clean each bore of the cylinder. Be sure to clear any Bore Cleaner and/or Hoppes from these cylinder bores, in that residual can allow the fire case to over expand within the cylinder bore seizing the case and preventing extraction.
The revolver has critical areas where fouling buildup can impede the rotation of the cylinder. One is the area of the back of the “forcing cone” (rear of the barrel projecting beyond the frame) and the front of the cylinder which almost meets it. The other is the “star” at the back of the cylinder which ejects the shells.
Carbon fouling and/or lead fouling can build up at the forcing cone/cylinder front gap. Clear any carbon fouling in these areas with a tooth brush dipped in Hoppes #9 and a cotton cloth. For lead fouling use a Lewis Lead Remover which is a device that holds copper wire patches about an arbor. This device is a rod inserted from the muzzle end of the barrel and then the copper patch and arbor is screwed in at the forcing cone end. A small amount of Hoppes and Bore Cleaner paste is placed on the copper patch and then drawn back through the barrel. Repeat as needed. Finish by clearing any residue with patches of Hoppes.
The “star” at the rear of the cylinder can get bits of fouling behind it which will raise the “star” to bind against the rear frame locking the cylinder in the frame and preventing rotation. Inspect the surfaces of the “star” and the cylinder back and then clean away any fouling bits
Field Cleaning of Semi-Auto Pistols: A quick cleaning of a pistol can be done with a Hoppe Bore Snake. The Bore Snake is a braded device with a brass tipped lead line. The braded part has an area to apply cleaning fluid (Hoppe #9) followed by an area holding bronze bristles and then followed by an area to clean and dry. The lead line is dropped through the barrel from the bore end and then repeatedly pulled through the bore. The Bore Snake when dirty can be washed in a washing machine.
