There are approximately one million security guards employed in the United States. Many are undertrained and unregulated. Training requirements vary by state, but currently there are no industry-wide standards for security operations and certification programs for security professionals.

Professional Security Officer is a DVD-based training series for those seeking credentialing as a security officer. The training may be provided prior to initial posting, or may be part of an ongoing training program. This program has a wide application for contract and staff security officers, both armed and unarmed.
