8 Hour Guard Card or 40 Hour Guard Card Training

You may ask yourself why is there a difference in the required training and what will the 40 hour guard card training do for me that the 8 hour guard card will not.


You have to look at it as if you were the employer who is looking at you as the employee. They are responsible to make sure you are current on your guard card training requirements and if you are not they can be fined, it's not cheap. They also have to train you for the post that you are assigned and this is a cost factor as well. They are looking at the cost and if you will stay with the company, this is their bottom line (profit factor).


Now if you are applying for a job and there are 2 people applying and you are one of them. You have only 8 hours of guard card  training completed and the other person has all 40 hours of the guard card done. They would take the person with all 40 hours guard card training done because of the cost factor, they know all the training was done and they will not have to track their training. If they take you then they have to make sure you complete your guard card training on time or they have to replace you with another guard. The training for that post starts all over again and this eats at the profit for that post.
