BSIS certifies and regulates firearms and baton instructors and firearms and baton training facilities under provisions of the Private Security Services Act, Chapter 11.5, Division 3, Business and Professions Code. No one may engage in any business regulated by this act in California without obtaining appropriate certification from this Bureau. Certification laws are subject to change.
