guesses, that some applicants wasted money on and then had to call us!

Alert: ACO fail to pay taxes Also new for 2017:

We include information on the BSIS
'Potential License Denial or Suspension for an ACO's Failure to Pay Taxes'



We have helped more than 4500 persons pass their states' licensing tests; more than 400 in the past year!
State Alarm Company Operator
license testing details, California:


--120 minutes allowed to complete test

--100 questions on each test

--The 6 main tested areas are (percentages can vary test-to-test):
False Alarms (16%), Consultation (15%), Installation (30%),
Service and Repair (14%), Management (14%), and Monitoring (11%)
.
As you see, 'Installation' is about a third of the test, and many applicants
only sold systems or did other non-installation work for their 4000 hours.

Many applicants get the 'monitoring' and 'management' questions wrong
because those are two portions that many alarm people aren't expert with.

And very few can properly answer all the employee-related questions.

--Remember, you must prepare for all 6 tests,
not just the one they will randomly issue you!


--you have 72 seconds per question to:
A) read and comprehend the entire question (sometimes several sentences long);
B) read through each of 4 answer choices, some lengthy, some very similar to each;
and C) decide on the best answer choice.

--Testing is at more than 20 locations in California, and at 10 locations
in other states, given most Mondays through Saturdays.

--Some of the California testing locations alphabetically (subject to change):
Anaheim, Atascadero, Bakersfield, Burbank, Carson,
El Monte, Fresno, Hayward,
Redding, Riverside,
Sacramento, San Diego, Santa Clara, Santa Rosa, Ventura
(complete list, with addresses, in study package)

--up to 72% required to pass.

--Many applicants fail the written exam.


--
Many versions of the test (fail, and you are later re-tested with a different test).
(You need to be prepared to pass all of the many versions of the alarm company test, not just one!)

Call us if you have failed this test-- we can tell you why within one minute;
for some items, we have modified state-issued data into more managable & absorbable data!


--You receive your exam results immediately at the end of the test.
If you pass, you will be told 'Pass', with no score given.
If you fail, you will be given a numerical score
,
but they will NOT tell you which questions you answered wrong.

TESTIMONIAL: "I passed today after studying your material. There was no question I couldn't answer." - HT

TESTIMONIAL: "I passed the first time with your big package." - SS


ACO test issues We hear the same thing, every week:
"The alarm test material from the State didn't help at all".
- or -
"The alarm test stuff the State sent me was only good for about 10 of the 100 questions".
- or -
"I failed the ACO test a couple of times-- a diferent test each time".

Well, this is TRUE. And here's why-it-is-what-it-is.
The State is here to regulate you, NOT educate you.

They provide you information on things that they can fine ($) an ACO for.
They do NOT help you with the majority of the test.

It is an 'experienced-based' examination.

Most of the test is about knowledge you supposedly have from not
only alarm work, but from running a business and from being an employer.

The truth is: you do not know these things, causing most to fail.



C7 and C10 licensees also qualify to take this test.
Most applicants need at least 4000 hours of alarm-related experience to be able to take this test.
One exception: as of January 1, 2013, the 4,000-hour requirement for low-voltage C7 license holders (0-91 volts)
in the state has been waived, allowing home theater and other A/V specialists to immediately take
the Alarm Company Qualified (ACQ) Manager exam. Once that test is passed, an integrator simply
needs to apply for an Alarm Company Operator (ACO) license to get into the security business.
There is not a separate test for an ACO license. (The 4,000-hour requirement had previously been
waived for electricians with state C10 licenses (0-high voltage) and for ACEs with 2 years of experience in the field.)

Hey- did you know:
Alarm Company Operators are allowed to conduct investigations
, if they are incidental to
personal injury, or the theft, loss, embezzlement, misappropriation, or concealment of any
property, or any other thing enumerated in the Alarm Company Code, which he/she has
been hired or engaged to protect (7590.2). So, as ACOs are allowed to do such investigations,
we make extensive material for learning investigations also available to ACOs at a special rate!


Don't choke ACO license topics studywhen you see the 280+ topics listed below!



A SECRET!

Reading our extensive printed paper ACO study materials with
memory-helping graphics, over and over, studying around your daily duties,
or sitting in your car, or even while resting in bed,

is FAR more effective then trying to study on-line or on a CD or at a 'seminar'.

Do one final review while parked outside the test center for
your Alarm Company Operator license test appointment!



QUESTION: "I failed again. Why does the ACO/ACQ license test ask questions about
firearms and about arresting people
? I don't want a gun-- I just want to install alarms!"

ANSWER: "Because most ACOs (and/or most of their employees) can later obtain a 'gun carry card' and also
can later be permitted to 'respond' to alarm activations, you must answer questions about those on the test now."


SO . . . . . . .

(low retention percentage, way too many words per actual needed knowledge)

more than 300 pages of datasheets with photos or graphics!

1. --current version,
full general California Alarm Company licensing information--

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
ACO license test 2. --more than 70 sample practice questions, all with verified correct answers
specifically just for possible test portions dealing with the lengthy & confusing
State of California Business & Professions Code 'Alarm Company Act'!

(these, combined with our more than 200 pages of 'ACO Key Facts Datasheets' ,
also known as 'giant flashcards' and many are shown below as sample questions
or knowledge datasheets, are a powerful tool for testing and/or for business!)


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

3. --OPTIONAL-- two improved versions of the confusing 'Alarm Company Act':

but on legal pleading-type numbered paper for easier re-review of the information (60 pages);

and
--b.--a large-print version, with a much larger print font;
easier on tired eyes and more room for highlighting & writing notes

(But a regular copy of this Alarm Company Act is in the basic package anyhow, broken into 'Study Statutes' sections)

  alarm company operator postcard

You will need 'marketing materials'
to make your ACO company bigger.

Postcards are an effective tool, as they
can be mailed themselves with a stamp, or
put in an envelope. Or left on porches.
Or slid under office doors. An easy item for
prospective clients to pin to their bulletin board.

This is an example of an affordable-to-print
full-color 4X6 postcard design that has
been proven to assist ACOs in getting new clients.
It is already designed; you just need to
change it to your phone, license, and company
name, and possibly add some minor changes.
(You don't see the layout lines when they are printed.)
At no charge, we can custom design yours for you,
giving you a .pub file of it that you can then give or
e-mail to many print shops for immediate printing!

Details from the State of California:

ALARM COMPANY OPERATOR

Alarm Company Operator, Qualified Manager, or Alarm Agent Requirements for Licensure

An Alarm Company Operator operates a business that sells (at the buyer's home or business), installs, monitors, maintains, services, or responds to alarm systems or supervises such actions. (Retail stores do not have to be licensed if they sell alarm systems only at the store and do not perform any alarm company functions.)

In order for a company to seek licensure as an alarm company operator, the Qualified Manager (see below) must have passed the licensing examination.

In addition, each individual applicant, partner, or corporate officer must meet the following requirements:

To apply for a company license, submit the $35 company license application fee and the $280 company license fee, two recent passport-quality photographs and an Alarm Company Operator Live Scan form signed by the Live Scan Operator. A $32 DOJ processing fee and a $19 FBI processing fee must be paid for each applicant at the Live Scan site. Send the application package to the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, P.O. Box 989002, West Sacramento, CA 95798-9002.

Note: Local authorities may require an alarm company operator to register locally and to get a business permit. They may also enact ordinances governing false alarm activations and responses, and they may require persons who own, lease, or rent alarm systems to get permits.

Qualified Manager

An individual, partnership, or corporation seeking a license as an alarm company operator must specify in the application the individual who will manage the business on a day-to-day basis. This individual is called the Qualified Manager. (An owner, partner, or corporate officer may serve as the qualified manager, or may hire someone to fill this role.) To be eligible to apply for licensure as a qualified manager, you must meet the following requirements:

To apply for a Qualified Manager certificate, submit a completed application, two recent passport-quality photographs, a $105 application and examination fee and an Alarm Company Operator Qualified Manager Live Scan form signed by the Live Scan Operator. A $32 DOJ processing fee and a $19 FBI processing fee must be paid for each applicant at the Live Scan site. Send the application package to the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, P.O. Box 989002, West Sacramento, CA 95798-9002.

Alarm Agent

An Alarm Agent is employed by an alarm company operator to sell (at the buyer's home or business), install, monitor, maintain, service, or respond to alarm systems or to supervise such actions. To be eligible to apply for registration as an alarm agent, you must meet the following requirements:

To apply for an Alarm Agent registration, submit a completed application, a $17 registration fee and an Alarm Company Employee Live Scan form signed by the Live Scan Operator. A $32 DOJ processing fee and a $19 FBI processing fee must be paid for each applicant at the Live Scan site. Send the application package to the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, P.O. Box 989002, West Sacramento, CA 95798-9002.

For an optional photo ID card, request a photo ID application, then send it with a passport-quality photo and $10 to the above address.

Once you have submitted your application and the appropriate fees, you may work with a temporary registration card as an unarmed alarm agent if you have not been convicted of a crime.

Firearm Permit

Whether you work as an alarm agent, alarm company operator, or qualified manager, you may not carry a gun on duty without having been issued a firearm permit by the Department of Consumer Affairs. To apply for a firearm permit, you must be a citizen or have permanent legal alien status, pass a course given by a Bureau- certified firearms training instructor in the carrying and use of firearms, submit a firearm permit application, an $80 application fee and an Alarm Agent Registration w/Firearm Permit Live Scan form signed by the Live Scan Operator. A $28 firearm eligibility application, $32 DOJ fingerprint processing and $19 FBI fingerprint processing fee must be paid for each applicant at the Live Scan Site. The 14-hour firearms (8 hours classroom, 6 hours range) training course covers moral and legal aspects, firearms nomenclature, weapons handling and shooting fundamentals, emergency procedures, and range training. The course must be given by a Bureau certified firearms training instructor at a Bureau certified training facility. Written and range exams are administered at the end of the course. Costs of training are determined by the training facility.

Note: A firearms qualification card expires two years from the date of issuance. An applicant must requalify four times during the life of the permit: twice during the first year after the date of issuance, and twice during the second year. Requalifications must be at least four months apart.

Tear Gas Permit

The law requires those who wish to carry tear gas on duty to complete training approved by the Department of Consumer Affairs. For a list of licensed training schools, call (800) 952-5210 or visit the Bureau's license look-up at www.dca.ca.gov/bsis/online_services/verify_license.shtml and search by county.

Applications for registration as an alarm agent are available from alarm company operators. To request an application for licensure as an Alarm Company operator or Qualified Manager, call (916) 322-4000 or (800) 952-5210, or visit our Web site at www.bsis.ca.gov/forms_pubs/

  9. How does an alarm company operator renew his/her license?

    After two years, the license is scheduled for renewal. The licensee may receive a (courtesy) renewal application mailed to the last address of record. If you do not receive a renewal application, you should submit a copy of your license with a written request for renewal, including the fees for renewal (see fee schedule) and mail to: Bureau of Security and Investigative Services P.O. Box 989002 West Sacramento, CA. 95798-9002 (This must be submitted before the expiration date.)

This request must be explained in writing. Otherwise, the company must state address by street, number and city. In addition, no licensee shall conduct business from any location other than the location for which a license or branch office registration was issued.

  18. How long does it take to process a new license after a name, address, or branch office change has been made?

    Typically name, address or branch changes take approximately four to six weeks.

  19. What forms are required to open a branch office? Is there a fee?

    Upon written request to the Bureau, a branch office application will be mailed to you. The branch office application fee is $35. (You may download a copy of the application from the Bureau's Web site at www.dca.ca.gov/bsis/)

  20. There has been a change in the type of ownership/entity after receiving the Alarm Company Operator License. What do I have to do?

    Licenses can not be transferred or reassigned to new entities.

A SECRET!

Reading our extensive printed paper ACO test study materials with
memory-helping graphics, over and over, studying around your daily duties,

is FAR more effective then trying to study on-line or on a CD or at a 'seminar'.

binder with section dividers, so bursting with information that its
pockets are likely to be exploded out by the time it arrives to you
(that's OK, the binder is just a shipping container, as the material
in the pockets are meant to be studied outside of the binder!)--***

After several requests asking for a reduced price version,
we formed a plan-- but we don't recommend it as the best choice.

If we provided you only the 1000+ pages of paper material,
with no binder, no dividers, maybe not even any staples(!),
perhaps we could shave off ACO license test 20% offfor this new bare-bones 'economy' version.

While it would have every page that the other version does,
we don't think it's a great idea. We think, actually we KNOW,
that our proper assembly into a binder with dividers and with
related items stapled together makes it a better study tool.
But because we have been asked, this is the idea.

NO MORE.
We're tired of the 'bad numbers', the delays, the costs,
the 'bank mistakes', the excuses, 'its my wife's fault', and so on.

We make too little on these 1200-page
13-pound packages for that headache.
So unless we are to raise our prices for 2017, if you can't come in to
pick up a package then there's only one way to send a shipment to you
if you need it faster than by sending payment by regular mail:
you simply overnight us a money order. It doesn't have to be a costly and
time-consuming one issued by a bank-- a grocery store or 7-11 money order is fine.
