Become armed Security officer in California.

Pass your permit for BSIS EXPOSED Firearm Application given by a Bureau-Certified Firearms Training Instructor at Draken Training Division.

Even if you are licensed or registered in the security field, you may not carry a gun on duty whether loaded or unloaded unless you have been issued an exposed firearm permit by the Department of Consumer Affairs. California Exposed Firearms Permit must be kept on your person at all times while on duty.

Our California Exposed Firearms Permit training seeks to provide essential education and certification to those wishing to work in the security field. Even if you are already licensed and registered in this field, you are not able to carry a gun on duty. This applies to both loaded and unloaded weapons. However, you can obtain the right to carry a firearm if you are issued with an exposed firearm permit by the Department of Consumer Affairs. Our California Exposed Firearms training is designed to provide you with the knowledge and experience required to obtain this permit.

After you are done here, you will submit your application packet to the BSIS along with their application fee of $100 in the form of a check or money order. Then, once they receive & process your paperwork, they will mail you the information on setting up your Psychological assessment with a company called PSI for a fee of $60.
