How to Become a Security Guard in Georgia

The path to becoming a Security Guard in Georgia is a little complex:

  • There is no state Security Guard license in Georgia for an unarmed Security Guard

  • Unarmed Security Guards still need to take an approved security course.

In Georgia, the government body that controls Security Guards is the GEORGIA STATE BOARD OF PRIVATE DETECTIVE & SECURITY AGENCIES.


So, it will be The Board that will have to approve your GA security course. Make sure your course is approved by The Board before taking it.
