Free Security Guard Training in New Mexico

Security guards have been required to be licensed starting in the year 2008 if they wish to be employed in New Mexico.  Individuals will need to complete all training required by the state of New Mexico in order to work as a security guard.  More training will be required for armed than unarmed security guards.  It is possible to receive free security guard training.

There are security guard companies who will hire individuals to work for their companies and then will provide or pay for all required security guard training.  If you receive your training in this way, you will then need to agree to work for the security company for a specified amount of time in exchange for your free training.  This provides you with a way to obtain your first job as a security guard while also not having to worry about paying for training.

You might also be able to receive training for free if you are currently receiving unemployment benefits.  There are many training program and training assistance programs available to individuals who are currently unemployed.  You should talk to someone at your local job placement/unemployment office to find out if any of the training programs available are for people who are hoping to start a career as a security guard.  You can also check with local Social Services offices if you are receiving some type of welfare benefits or if you believe that you could qualify for this type of benefit.

There could be training benefits available to you if you once served in the military or if you are in Military Reserves Programs.  You should check your benefits to help you determine if you could receive the funds you need to pay for training for this new career.  Take your time to look for more than one potential way to pay for training.
