Security Training

The Security Field is growing very rapidly and companies are stretched to provide adequate personnel to fill their requirements.

Lakeland Firearms & Training Center (LFTC) is a veteran owned and operated company dedicated to providing training to those wishing to join this rapidly growing field.  

We provide all training courses required by the State of Florida including the 42 hr Unarmed Security Guard (Class D), 28 hr Armed Security (Class G) and the 4 hr Armed Security Requalification.

In addition to the standard D and G courses we also offer optional courses for handcuffing, OC Spray, Baton and Taser.  Security guards who posses these optional certifications are more valuable to their employers and are generally more in demand.


If you are new or inexperienced with firearms don't let that stop you from a new exciting career! We offer basic pistol classes to give you a foundation into your security training. We also offer private one on one training to prepare you for the state required shooting qualification.
