Security Guard Training Academy

CAMBA is licensed by the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services to provide certification and training in the security field. The curriculum includes such topics as the role of the security officer, customer service, effective communication, crime prevention, report writing, emergency response, terrorism awareness and a specialized course in providing security for the Human Services field. We provide double the NYS required training hours because we’ve learned that students need more time with the curriculum, and that hands-on assistance with the licensing paperwork means more people reach their employment goals. Upon successful completion of the Security Officer Training, CAMBA clients receive their 8-hour and 16-hour security guard certificates and have access to a range of employment preparation programs and job placement assistance for those who qualify.

This program is funded by the NYC Council, and the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.
