SORA (Security Office Registration Act)
SORA (Security Officer Registration Act) is a standardized Security guard training program that has become law in the state of New Jersey since 2007. This law now requires security practitioners to register, receive state regulated training and a background check to work as a security guard in New Jersey.
Guard Training is offered by licensed training schools, who must have SORA certified instructors. These instructors must meet the minimum of a 24 hour course for the students and administer a test at the end of the training.
The objectives of the training are to provide training in a variety of subjects directly related to the security and safety of their clients. When an organization considers the safety of its patrons and the business needs of its organization they must consider the training and capabilities of the officers they employ. The knowledge gained through this program offers exposure to fundamental concepts and principles of the security industry.
This course is applicable to all security practitioners as well as former law enforcement personnel tasked with the safety and security for businesses they serve.
