T: (718) 282-0108

Program Summary: Upon successful completion of the Security Officer Training, CAMBA clients receive their 8-hour and 16-hour security guard certificates.

CAMBA is licensed by the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services to provide certification and training in​ the security field. Our NY State and Homeland Security-certified instructor has 10 years of teaching experience, including six years at the NYPD Police Academy.

​The curriculum includes such topics as the role of the security officer, customer service, effective c​ommunication, crime prevention, report writing, emergency response and terrorism awareness.

We provide double the required training hours because we’ve learned that students need more time with the ​curriculum and that hands-on assistance with the licensing paperwork means more people reach their employment goals.

Eligibility: Government-issued photo ID, proof of citizenship, high school diploma or GED
Clients Served Annually: 166
