How to Become a Security Guard in Michigan

The way to becoming a Security Guard in Michigan is unlike a lot of the other US states:

  • the difference is that there is no such thing as a state Security Guard license in Michigan.

A MI Security Guard is regulated through their Michigan security employer which has an official name:

  • Private Security Guard Agency.

There is no MI security license but to get hired as a MI Security Guard you'll still need to meet basic requirements such as age, language proficiency, and other usual security licensing requirements of this nature.


To become a Security Guard in most states, you need to take a government approved Security Guard licensing course, not in Michigan.
