How to Become a Security Guard in Vermont

The steps to becoming a Security Guard in Vermont is similar to a lot of other states: you need to meet basic requirements such as age, language proficiency, and other usual security licensing requirements of this nature.


Furthermore, to get a Security Guard license in Vermont, you need to take a government approved VT Security Guard licensing course:

  • This is a 40hr hour security training course.

In Vermont, the government body that controls a VT Security Guard's license is called The Board of Private Investigative and Security Services


So, it is The Board that will have to approve your VT Security Guard licensing course. The Board will accept the 40hr security training course if it is taught by an authorized security academy.

  • The Board has a list of approved providers on their website

  • After taking the course, you will need to take an exam

Once you submit the proof of your ability to meet the requirements to The Board, you will get your Vermont Security Guard license.
