PRICE: $40 OR Free for military Veterans. Please bring proof of Veteran status to class such as VA/MIL id or DD-214.

TIME: 8am-5pm. 8 hours training plus 1 hour lunch.

LOCATION: Varies.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?: Something to take notes with.

ADDITIONAL FEES (paid after class and not to me)-

Keep in mind you don't have to shell it all out at once. Your training and Live Scans are good for a year before you have to get new ones.

You can take the class, save up and wait, get Live Scanned, save up and wait and then send everything in with your application fee.

If you're thinking about going armed for a better paying job later, I suggest you wait to send your packet in because if you send in to get your guard card and then start getting your gun card later you have to Live Scan AGAIN instead of sending BSIS one big packet.If we can get 10 students who for sure want to Live Scan at the class, they'll come to the class during lunch.

All students who receive guard card training through us qualify for $100 Gun Card training!!
