About MSTA


We are committed to providing our students with exceptional, comprehensive training to help prepare our students in achieving their employment and/or career goals.  We also are committed to providing California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) with trained and qualified individuals who are seeking registration to be licensed for employment opportunities within the Private Security Industry.


Please be informed that, MSTA DOES NOT REFUND TRAINING FEES and BSIS DOES NOT REFUND LICENSE PROCESSING FEES, especially, when an Applicant provides FALSE STATEMENTS about his or her CRIMINAL HISTORY on his or her APPLICATION FORMS, to apply for LICENSE to PROTECT LIFE and PROPERTY.

Therefore, we at MSTA highly encouraged that each student ‘must’ state the Fact about his or her Criminal History, while filling out his or her Application Forms to apply for Guard Card, Permit for Exposed Firearm or PSO Card.  Any false statement about your criminal history will result to denial of your Application for a license.  If you have been convicted, released and off Parole, check yes to the question in the Application Form or discuss the matter(s) with MSTA Representative for clarity about the question(s).  We are here to train and help our students.
