It cost a lotta' money 15 years ago to get Act 235 and it was more of a hassel than Act 120 on the physical side (vision requirements) and the you had to pay a for a physch test to boot. Not an act 120 requirement at the time.
The pay wasn't all that good and you couldn't work as an independent bodyguard. A independent bodyguard has to possess a Private Detective License. That is a whole other set of requirements that not many people can meet. A PI cannot work for any law enforcement agency and be a PI at the same time.
Been there. Done that.
Thanks for PI idea, didnt think of that. And yes I've been researching it its going to be a least 450 for everything just for the act 235.
