  • question about "832 pc" class and "Entry Tactics for the Security Specialist"

    Actually the second one was a joke (which few will get).

    On some of the better paying security jobs out here they've been asking for pc832 training. I know this is an arrest and firearm class. I'm not sure if this is part of the POST training and only for LEOs or if anyone can attend the class. I'm also not sure if this class can only be taken at police academies or if it can be attended elsewhere. I've done a few search's on it but haven't had a lot of luck finding out specifics. I thought about posting on one of the LEO websites but being "just" a security guard figured I'd be ignored or ridiculed.

    P.C. 832 training is much more than you have mentioned. No security company is willing to pay for this training. You can enroll in a college and obtain a certificate for this.

      Thank you for the response.

      I did a check of all the community colleges here in Los Angeles and found 1 that offered the class.

        Never heard of PC832 or whatever.

          Car 54,

          Yes, the PC 832 class is a part of POST training and can be taken through a police academy or a community college.

          I think the closest one to you is El Camino College in Torrance. Others that I know offer the class are Rio Hondo College in Whittier, Rancho Santiago College (Orange County Sheriff's Academy) in Santa Ana, and Golden West College in Huntington Beach.

          Also, I got the "Entry Tactics for the Security Specialist" joke. MallNinja. Funny stuff.

            For EMTGuard: Its part of the Cali POST class, and is the "Powers of Arrest Vested By State" course. As opposed to the BSIS Security "Powers of Arrest (Vested by Private Person)" course. Its basically the fundamental building block of CA POST certification for LEOs, it teaches anyone with arrest powers how to use them. i.e. Park Rangers, etc.
