NOTICE TO ALL PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS BOARD LICENSEES AND APPLICANTS REGARDING SECURITY GUARD LEVEL ONE, TWO, AND THREE TRAINING REQUIREMENTS, ONLINE TRAINING IS NOT ACCEPTED FOR SECURITY GUARD LEVEL ONE, TWO, AND THREE REGISTRATION:
Pursuant to NMSA 1978, Sections 61-27B-5(D)(3), the Regulation and Licensing Department is responsible for adopting and “establishing minimum training and education standards for licensure and registration” of level one, two and three security guards in the state of New Mexico. The RLD has established training requirements for security guard training for level one, two and three applicants in 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 NMAC, respectively. Each of these rules requires that all training to qualify for a registration as level one, two or three security guard, requires “training shall be taught by an in-person instructor.” The RLD has defined “in-person” as “in one’s bodily presence.” RLD is applying a dictionary definition to the term “in-person.” Pursuant to 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 NMAC, online training does not qualify an applicant for registration for security guard level one, two, or three.
