Page 4 Training Waiver and Licensing In the United States, security guard education and licensing is regulated by a city, county or state security regulatory body. For example, in the State of California, the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) is responsible for oversight of guard licensing and security training services providers. In the State of Virginia, it is the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS). A training waiver or exemption is often granted to qualified persons who submit proof of sufficient work experience and training that satisfies guard licensing or instructor/trainer requirements. If approved by a state agency, such persons are deemed qualified to perform said duties and issued an appropriate guard license or credential. FSGI recommends that course alumni contact the security guard licensing agency in their area to explore the possibility of gaining a training waiver exemption and license to work in your area. Instructor Qualifications 1) All FSGI Tactical Instructors are certified to teach Protective Services training curriculum having completed a US government approved high threat course of the same. 2) All FSGI Tactical Instructors are drawn from the ranks of active duty, reserve or veteran military forces of the USA, UK, Royal Fiji Military Forces, Australia, or the French Foreign Legion and have minimum of six (6) years’ experience therein. 3) All FSGI Tactical Instructors bring a wealth of real world experience gained through multiple deployments into Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and/or various regions of Africa. This synergistic blend of multi-cultural wisdom and expertise is unique to FSGI.
  5. 5. FIJIAN SOLUTIONS GROUP INTERNATIONAL®. 2012. All rights reserved. Produced in cooperation with Hostile Control Tactics, LLC. Page 5 Training Methodologies 1. All training is conducted in a professional manner, and in a clean and well lit environment. 2. FSGI instructor/trainers present course material using strategies aimed at teaching adult learners. Subsequently, a student audience consisting of auditory learners, visual learners, surface learners and deeper learners will successfully absorb and comprehend the material. 3. Academic training utilizes multimedia audio/video, PowerPoint© presentations, instructor lecture and interactive dialogue among students. 4. FSGI introduces attribute development drills which are repetitive physical techniques executed for extended periods of time. This form of training ‘rewires’ or programs the subconscious mind to respond instinctively in the desired manner. FSGI acknowledges modern research into “fight or flight response” studies indicating that when under extreme duress, particularly when faced with a life-or-death threat an operator will respond in a manner consistent with training received. *Technical reference sources provided on page 6. ---------------- END OF COURSE SYLLABUS ----------------
