Renewal application documents must be received by the Department within 180 days prior to the expiration date of the certification or licensure to allow for processing of the forms and background check.
A late submission penalty will be assessed if reapplying after the expiration date of the certification or licensure.
Applicants renewing their certification or licensure more than four years after the expiration date of the certification or licensure must submit a new application packet.
An application packet for renewing certification or licensure as a private security Instructor must be completed in its entirety and must include:
1. A completed Form PS-21
2. A Form PS-8 (Continuing Education Form); and
3. Nonrefundable renewal certification or licensure fees.
Certified private security instructors who simultaneously
hold certification as a private security professional are exempt from the
required private security professional renewal training if they deliver the
basic curriculum of the discipline for which they are certified at least one
time per year.
