The Security Instructor Development Certification Course (IDC) is a 40-hour training course mandated by the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services in order to become a Certified Security Guard Instructor.
Upon successful completion of this course, each student will be a certified security guard instructor. This certification will allow new instructors to conduct training at state approved security guard training schools in the State of New York. The goal of this course is to assist instructor candidates in developing the ability to research, prepare and communicate that knowledge to others.
This is the class that provides “Instructor” certification for Security Guards in General Topics, which include the 8-hour Pre Assignment, 16-hour On Job Training (OJT) and the 8-hour Annual In Service, all of which are the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services mandated courses for new and working registered New York State registered Security Guards, Armed and Unarmed.
This course is also the prerequisite for training to become a NYS CERTIFIED Firearms Instructor, as well as other specialties.
