NEW YORK Alarm Installer license examination test  

A test so tough that, unlike most other states, NY makes you pass
the license test BEFORE you can apply for a NY license!

NOTE: for this test, you must know both burglar and fire.

We can answer this question:
"Why do persons fail this test, even though
many recently had 81 hours of training?"

This alarm package is 9 pounds pounds of study!

Updated for 2022!

TESTIMONIAL: "I took the required 81-hour course-- then failed the licensing test twice. Almost nothing from the 81 hours was on the test. So I got your material and passed!" - AR

State license testing details, NY:

--2 1/2 hours


at Albany, Buffalo, Franklin Square,

"To engage in the business of installing, servicing or maintaining security or fire alarm sytems
means and refers to a person who holds himself out directly or indirectly, as being able,
or who offers or undertakes, by any means or method, to install, service or maintain a
security or fire alarm to detect intrusion, beak-in, movement, sound or fire."

A security and fire alarm installers license is also required
for the installation, maintenance or servicing of the following:

(1) a closed circuit television system (CCTV) if such system is used,
either full-time or part- time, for the detection or monitoring
of intrusion, break-in, theft, movement, sound or fire;
(2) electrical entry systems which detect and/or provide
notification of intrusion, break-in, theft, movement,
sound or fire regardless of the number of entry points.

Ask about the 'special help' if you have already failed this test!

NY PI license testHere are eight NY test 'secrets' to know: NY PI test

1- Watch out for 'double-negatives'!

2- Some answer choices are VERY similar,
with only small differences!

3- The State telling you that you must know "The Business of Installing,
Servicing or Maintaining Security or Fire Alarm Systems License Law
is vague advice about wide topics!

4- Some are extra-weak with the 'employee'
and 'business management' portions.

5- Some are 'opinion' questions,
but you better have the 'right' opinion!

6- Where most other license tests ask
you to choose the 'best' answer choice,
you might find a few on the NY tests that actually ask
you to choose the 'wrong' or 'least-likely' answer choice!

7- Look out for time-eater 'paragraph questions':
Many test questions follow the reading of a long paragraph,
then the actual questions are about that paragraph.
Some ask 'What was most important about that paragraph?'

8- Prepare for choosing 'Desirable' or 'Undesirable' as answer choices.

ACO alarm license seminar We are NOT a boring seminar!   
We are NOT a boring online prep! ACO alrm company operator license test online
PPO license powerpoint We are NOT a pdf download!

PPO test issues We hear the same thing, every week:
"The material from the State didn't help at all".
- or -
"The stuff the State sent me was only good for a few of the questions".
- or -
"I have failed the license test 3 times, and each time it was a different test".

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

They provide you information on things that they can fine ($) you 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 from
alarm work, but also from running a business and from being an employer.

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

but they fail to advertise that specific paid experience in NY is required first!
