Florida Armed Security Officer Course

The State of Florida requires that all Florida License G" Armed Security Officers requalify at least once per year with the type of handgun that they carry on duty. S2 provides annual Class "G" refresher training and requalification on a monthly basis at our firearms training location, the Wyoming Anteloupe Club.

Students that successfully requalify will be given proof of requalification to provide to the State to maintain their Class "G" license.


Class "G" Requalification is conducted at the Wyoming Antelope Club in Pinellas Park, Florida. Click here for directions and a map.

Class "G" Requalification in the Orlando area is conducted at a range in Groveland, FL:

Firearms & Equipment

You are recommended to bring the following items to the range.

.38 revolver or 9mm, .40 or .45 caliber pistol
(3+) speed loaders (or 3+ magazines, if appropriate)
Quality duty holster and loader/magazine pouches
(NO cross draw, shoulder, SOB, or ankle holsters)
Comfortable clothing that provides protection from both the sun and ejected brass

If you are bringing a handgun, the weapon should be brought to the range unloaded and encased. All student-brought weapons will be subjected to a safety inspection prior to live fire.

If you do not possess a handgun for use at the range, you may rent one for a fee of $20.00. If a rental weapon is needed, you must let us know at the time you enroll in the class.

Florida Chapter 493

Security officer training and licensing is regulated under Florida State Statute Chapter 493. Click here to download an Adobe PDF version of Florida Chapter 493.

Information regarding licensing procedures and Division of Licensing locations can be found on the Florida Department of Agriculture web site.

UPDATE: As of July 1, 2014, new procedures for the 4-hour requalification were in effect. There is a mandatory class curriculum that will be conducted followed by the actual requalification course of fire. If the licensee qualifies on the first course, they will not need to fire the additional two courses. If the licensee fails to requalify on the first attempt, they have two more attempts to achieve a passing score.
