Job Partners



Deciding on what security companies you want to apply with, is as important as where you get your training. Our Security Jobs Partnership Program will steer you in the right direction. Our security jobs partners are screened to ensure they are properly licensed as Private Patrol Operators (PPO) with the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS).  

Do not be mislead by app based "platform" or "scheduling referral" companies that connect their clients with licensed security guards. Those companies are not licensed by the BSIS to provide security services, and hire licensed security guards as independent contractors, not as regular employees. While the hourly pay rate will be higher up front, the situation is not as pretty as it may seem. As an independent contractor, you will be expected to pay taxes on the income you make since payroll taxes will not be withheld, they will not provide you with health benefits, general liability insurance, workers compensation insurance, nor will they provide vacation time, sick time, a retirement savings plan, etc. Additionally, and most importantly, it is against the law for companies to provide contract security services without being licensed by the BSIS. It is also against the law for licensed security guards to provide contract security services as independent contractors. Don't be fooled! Click here for information from the BSIS regarding licensing. Click here to check if a company that you are interested in working with is properly licensed as a Private Patrol Operator (PPO) by the BSIS.

We are proud to partner with the following, legitimate, security companies. 

These security companies are listed in no particular order, and we encourage you to consider all of them when you begin your job search.
