What is the total cost to get my Ontario Security Guard License?

Before you begin on your journey to working as a security guard, you should be aware of all of the costs involved.


Below you will find a summary of all the costs that you will need to consider from training to licensing:


  1. Recognized Security Guard Training Course
  2. Emergency Level First Aid and CPR
  3. Ontario Security Guard Exam
    • Online or in person with Serco $35.00 + HST = $39.55
  4. Ontario Security Guard License
    • Your Application is completed online and the license is renewed every 2 years for $80.00


Once your application is approved, your new license card will arrive by mail within eight weeks.  But don’t worry, you will be able to download, print and legally work with a digital copy of your license before the card arrives in the mail.
