Armed guards are required by New York State DCJS to complete the Annual Eight Hour Firearms Training course each year. The class includes three hours of classroom refresher on the Use of Force followed by a written examination, and five hours of weapons qualification which includes a proficiency examination. The guard must complete this course as a prerequisite for renewal of his or her armed guard registration.

At Valor Training Group, we require 100 rounds of FMJ and 50 rounds of JHP (Duty rounds) for each firearm the guard is qualifying with.  We also require a proper duty holster, magazine pouch, 3 magazines/speed loaders, PPE’s including hearing and eye protection, baseball cap and body armor if owned.
