Gwinnett Tech to Offer Required Training for Private Detectives, Security Personnel
Gwinnett Technical College is offering two new programs fulfilling the state's recent mandate that requires all registered private detectives and security guards to have additional training.
Every registered private detective and security guard in Georgia is required to obtain continuing education hours beginning September 1 this year. The license period is for two years, and registrations expire on August 31 of odd years.
The private detective post-license program at Gwinnett Tech will provide training on homeland security, focusing on indicators of terrorism and cooperation with DHS agencies (Department of Homeland Security), ethics, and industry-related training, which may include firearms-related training.
Gwinnett Tech's private detective training program is the longest running program of its kind in the state of Georgia, and instructor W. Larry Davis, a noted expert in the field, has been with the program from the beginning.
The college's new continuing education courses for licensed detectives can be completed in just a few weeks. The private detective course (80 CE Hours) can be completed in just one quarter and fulfills the state's requirements for pre-license instruction.
To enroll in the private detective or security continuing education programs beginning fall/winter quarters at Gwinnett Tech, call 770-995-9697.
