The law seems pretty clear that this individual could hire you as an employee (security guard) without either of you needing a security license.
The thing is, he then becomes liable for your actions under the fundamental legal principle of "respondeat superior", which means "let the master answer" (for the deeds of the servant - or employee, in modern terms). This principle is hewn out of the rock of common law and applies in every common law state - of which Georgia is one.
He also needs to pay you a wage or salary, withhold taxes, FICA, etc.
He needs to determine the scope of your duties and oversee your work.
As such, if you and he decide to take this approach, he should consult his attorney, insurance advisor and accountant about these matters.
