Do you live in the Tri-State area and long to work as an armed or unarmed security officer? If that’s what’s in your heart, consider applying for security employment work opportunities in the Garden State. Right now, there are New Jersey firms actively seeking SORA Certified security personnel.
Here’s what you need to do in order to be in a position to snag one:
In the early 2000s, the state passed what’s widely recognized as the Security Office Registration Act. It’s designed, in part, to ensure that all of the security personnel working in the Garden State start out on an even footing. So the act’s core elements include state regulated training, extensive background checks, basic standards and a state issued, renewable registration card.
Once you are ready to get serious about obtaining security employment in New Jersey, you’ll need to go online. The New Jersey State Police’s website has a link that will let you fill out a registration form and SORA Certification application online. There are typically several fees involved in the initial process. They include an application fee, temporary registration fee and fingerprinting fee.
If you hope to be an armed SORA Certified security officer in the Garden State, you must complete a separate application process. That process traditionally starts with a visit to the New Jersey police department nearest your place of residence. It doesn’t have to be a state troopers’ barracks. A local police station should be able to help you apply for a carry permit too. The list of fees associated with the armed portion of the process tends to include the carry permit fee, certificate of eligibility fee and fingerprinting fee.
After the applications have been submitted, you’ll have a certain amount of time to complete the state regulated training certification program, which is offered by select New Jersey schools. In most instances, the certification training program will take 24 hours to complete. Once it ends, you’ll need to notify the state that you finished the course and complete the rest of the application process.
The final step on the road to SORA Certified security employment is to swing by Jobvertise. While there, post your resume and search for security employment work opportunities until you find one that suits your needs.
