Defencify Announces Tennessee Security License Training Course

Defencify is excited to add Tennessee to the growing list of states that have approved the use of online security officer training technology for certification as an unarmed private security guard. The first of these courses is the Tennessee Security License Training Course.

This four-hour remote eLearning experience, developed in partnership with the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance, provides all the training required under the Tennessee Private Protective Services Licensing and Regulatory Act for initial licensing as an unarmed private security guard in Tennessee.

Upon completion, students will be issued a certificate as proof of education to be submitted to the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance for an unarmed security officer license.

Students do not need to be a current Tennessee resident to take the course. That means people planning to relocate to Tennessee can arrive with license in hand, pre-approved to work in the state.

The class is divided into four modules, each with several sub-modules for a total of nine subjects. Concepts are presented in short bursts, augmented by interactive exercises, games, and knowledge checks to confirm students’ understanding and participation. At the conclusion of the course students must pass a 40-question final exam to earn their license.

At a cost of just $67, Defencify’s unique brand of online training is now a certified alternative to costly, inefficient instructor-led training in the state of Tennessee.

For individuals wanting to become a licensed unarmed security guard in Tennessee, this is the only course you need.
