Most security work is entry level, requiring only a high school diploma. Extra education, such as criminal justice, is a plus. The list of basic requirements includes being a Tennessee resident for at least five years. The Private Protective Services section of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance offers four hours of training as part of its licensing application, with separate application processes for armed and unarmed certifications.
