 Applying for a Combined Individual and Firm Security Guard License

If the qualifying agent for a firm desires to have both the individual security guard license and the firm license, the two processes can be done at the same time. Remember, it is not required unless the qualifying agent will be conducting security guard business separate from the licensed firm. Follow these steps:

  1. Complete the application steps set out in "Applying for a Security Guard Firm License".  All of the required documentation for the qualifying agent is the same as for an individual license. See Step #3 below for the correct fees. 
  2. Specify in a cover letter that you are applying for an individual license for the qualifying agent in addition to the firm license. 
  3. Pay the appropriate fees calculated from the information below. Choose the license amount for each license from the appropriate category. For example, if the firm is a West Virginia company but the individual applicant is a resident of another state, you will pay the in-state firm fee and the out-of-state individual fee.

    Enter the firm application fee:
    Company organized in West Virginia   ($200)                                    
    Company organized in another state    ($500)                                                 +____________

    Add the individual application fee for the qualifying agent:
    Resident of WV ($100)                                                                
    Non-Resident    ($500)                                                                                  +____________

    Add one non-refundable application processing fee                                          +          $50.00

    Calculate the total fees to accompany the application                                       = ____________
