Welcome to SLED Security Training
Our Next class is:
January 23, 2023
We will update and post a specific day when we know.
Our class will be held in Piedmont SC.
All classes (Unarmed and Armed).
Class will start at 9am and you must reserve a seat. We keep the classes small so the training is better.
Our New location is in the 81 shopping plaza in Piedmont.
You should “GOOGLE” Alpha Printing in Piedmont SC” this way it takes you right to our front door as we are in the same store front.
The Address is:
11027 Anderson Rd, Piedmont, SC 29673
BUT, it will NOT take you to the location.
If you plan on attending, you must email us to reserve your seat and get the class information.
No matter what class you choose, these are the books you should get familiar with.
The Unarmed Primary Basic Class (Class 0025)
The Unarmed Primary Plus Class (Class 0026 and 27)
Remember, to be Armed (Class 0027), you will be required to review the 2 books in class, take 2 tests and then go the the shooting range to qualify with the weapon you choose to carry on your post.
SLED Offers 2 classes. The Primary Basic and Primary Plus classes. Like we said, in reality there are 3 classes because there are 3 types of Officers you can be.
However, not to confuse you, we try to explain below.
- An Unarmed Officer with no Arrest Authority mostly used at “Malls” and department stores. This class is the “PRIMARY BASIC” Class.
- An Unarmed Officer WITH Arrest Authority. Having “Arrest Authority” with no weapon or means to protect yourself is not advised. This class is the “PRIMARY BASIC” and “PRIMARY PLUS” Class.
- An Armed Officer WITH Arrest Authority. This class is the “PRIMARY BASIC”, “PRIMARY PLUS” and the “Qualification Armed portion at the shooting range”.
The 3 types of Classes that we offer for SLED Security Training are listed below as well as explaining what your “Authority” level will be.
Primary Basic, No Weapons / No Arrest Authority
This is the bare minimum class you can take.
This class gives you the authority to work as a UN-Armed SLED Private Security Officer. Your Authority will be only to Observe and Report. You Will Not have arrest powers. You wont be allowed to carry handcuffs, a weapon, baton, pepper spray or anything except a whistle and flashlight.
Time: 4 hours / Varies.
Again, with this class, you cannot carry a Taser, OC pepper Spray or anything. You will be a SLED Private Security Officer once you get hired by a Private Security Company, but just to Observe and Report.
Primary Basic and Primary Plus taken together WITHOUT Weapons qualifications.
This class gives you the authority to work as a UN-Armed SLED Private Security Officer. Your Authority will be just like a sheriffs deputy on the property you are contracted with EXCEPT you will not carry a Lethal Weapon (handgun). You need this class to carry Pepper Spray, Taser and a Baton.
You will still have to be trained in anything you carry on your duty belt when it comes to Lethal and Non lethal weapons.
Time: 6-8 hours / Varies
Primary Basic and Primary Plus taken together W / Weapons qualifications.
This class gives you the authority to work as a Armed SLED Private Security Officer. Your Authority will be just like a sheriffs deputy on the property you are contracted with. You Will be a SLED Certified Armed Private Security Officer with this class once you are hired by a company and send your application to SLED. For this class, you must bring the weapon you want to qualify with. If you do not have a weapon, we have them at the range included in our pricing.
Time: 8 hours / Varies
Price: $230.00. We supply range, weapon (if needed), class training.
Not included: Ammo. If you bring a weapon, bring a minimum of 50 rounds of Ammo. If you do not bring a weapon, we will have one for you…BUT, you will have to purchase their Ammo at the range as they want to make sure you use good Ammo in their weapons.
