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 communication, 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.
