Marshall Security Training Academy & Range

Review №1

I have been a member of Marshall for over a year now. The membership is worth the small cost. From my experience, Marshall gives expert training and and advise that has been valuable to me. For instance, on my first firearms license renewal, Marshalls staff walked me through the paperwork and process. I received my renewal card in less than three weeks. The gang at Marshall are knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. As a professional security officer, I enthusiastically recommend Marshall Security Training & Range to any California security officer, armed and unarmed, to join and avail themselves of all the value Marshalls offers.

I was gonna join the force army, when a friend of mines recommended trying getting my guard card and fire arm permit at this friendly and well prepared facility. After this academy I found no need to join the arm force. I would recommend this to you, if your looking for a very professional tactical, but friendly environment. This is the place for you!

Review №3

This place is pretty cool, and has great customer service. Since the first time I walked in to get my FSC I was greeted by Lolah who had great customer service and was very informative. Also my instructor Daniel was very helpful and helped me understand the importance of Gun safety. I would definitely recommend this place, you will be greeted with friendly customer service and get all your questions answered.

I went to get my Firearms Permit at Marshall Security Training Academy & Range. The staff are very professional and knowledgeable. The class was good. The range was good as well. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get their firearms certificates.

Review №5

Highly recommend anyone to come here. The instructor was very nice and informative. I’ve came here and and got all my certifications with no hassle whatsoever. The lady at the counter was very helpful as well.

Review №6

This is the best place to get your training for any kind of security permits they go and explain everything step by step there so great with the work they do

Review №7

People should check Marshall security or SPECIAL UNIT SECURITY DETAIL SERVICES via Yelp reviews. Before applying for employment . I’m not saying don’t apply but inform your self first so you won’t have any problems .Please Look at the reviews most of them are bad . The majority come from employees who were hire from the company supervisor Tim . The company will respond to any former employee who decides to leave a review via Yelp or google about the company management and their rules that does not benefit them in a good way with a “ sorry mr so so, we have no record of you working for us stop leaving fake reviews .Of course they will say that to anyone who decides to rate them with a poor review, so they could look good in their defense . In reality they do have records of anyone that has work for them in the past and the present . They make you fill out a booklet about their company policy, emergency contacts etc ... and a 1099 form when you start working for them . The 1099 form is just pretty much Mikey mouse . In case if the state of California were to ask the company a record or their payroll info they just show them the 1099 forms . Be careful with some of the employees they will back stab you . Do not trust nobody . You will have to also go to Compton every 2 weeks to pick up your pay and leave your time sheet . If your late with leaving your time sheet in the mail box your getting pay late . When you pick up pay you will have to go at weird times.... pretty much after 3pm anyways look them up on Yelp and please look at their reviews closely .

Review №15

Marshall academy is probably one of the best security training academies in Cali. The staff offers great customer service and the curriculum is very informative. For those who need 1st time certification or recertification marshal has a class for it. From the first aid and cpr to advanced fire arms training I would highly recommend.

Review №16

Everytime I walk in it’s a friendly vibe and yet still professional atmosphere 👍🏼

Review №17

Staff is highly trained and experienced in this line of work. They may look a little intimidating at first but they are more than happy to work with you. The course catalog ranges from personal defense tactics to first aid and casualty care. Staff can and will work with you if you have a limited schedule as well. The location is very clean and well organized and renders tribute to first responders and service members.

Review №21


Review №22

This company is real shady, at first when you apply they treat you good etc.... what the guards dont know is that they make you fill out a 1099. They say that they dont 1099 you at the end of year. according to this wana be cop that goes by Tim he said that they make their guards fill out the 1099 paper just if the state decided to come and check their payroll records bs they have something to show....... what guards dont know that this is their back up plan incase if the state actually does go after their security company they could say their doing everything legit and 1099 every guard who sign that paper to cover themselves . lastly so much drama and lies, none of the management staff has the courage to tell you what they dont like about you, they will tell other guards and make false lies about you . so watch out

Review №23

Went to take my exposed firearm permit class and it was a really friendly and fun environment with the classmates as well as the instructor. The staff is very nice, helpful and very informative.

Review №57

If I could give them 0 starts I would. I have never had a worse experience in my entire life than having to purchase my firearm through them. Waited 26 days where only 10 days were the mandated california cool down period. Purchased on Sept 21st they failed to submit DROS until Oct 7th I have the receipt and emails to prove all my paperwork was submitted on the 21st. So it took them 16 days to submit my DROS in those 16 days I called multiple times with no response until Oct 7th when they some how were able to give me an exact 10 day window. Previously by an employee I was told the 10 day wait was 10 business days not including sat or sun instead of the 10 24hr periods as stated by CA DOJ. They refused to acknowledge the mistake on thier part and blamed the system saying that sometimes it takes the system longer to accept paperwork. Like previously stated though on the 7th they were able to provide me a 10 24hr periods to the time that I called in at. Just over all worse than having to deal with MEP when joining the military. Would not recommend this business not even to my worst enemy. DO NOT SHOP HERE AVOID AT ALL COST if possible shop and shoot and train somewhere else more professional with people that are up to date and keep up with 2A news and actually wish to support the community.

Review №58

Great place. The staff were very helpfull, knowledgeable, and professional.

This place is a gem. The staff is incredible and so is the owner. All of their prices are more than reasonable and even better than any place Ive been to.The range is well kept and you get quality shooting time with low stress and no B.S. I would highly recommend going to Marshalls for all your training needs, I cant say enough about it.

Review №60

The people there have great customer service and greet you as soon as you walk in . No long wait . They made it seem so easy for me during my course . I would highly recommend this place

Review №61

Had a good time there the people make you feel comfortable and give you good information.

Review №62

I highly recommend Marshall Security Training Academy to anyone looking to get into the security business or those who need other permits besides the guard card. I went in this week and applied for my exposed firearm permit. The Instructor who gave the classroom session was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.After passing my written test, I was scheduled for the firing range the next day. The range master was professional and taught me everything needed to know about handling a handgun properly and effectively. He assisted me with my shooting technique, to better perfect my shot. he was very helpful with the numerous tips he had for shooting. I will definitely come back for all my renewals and firing range needs.

Review №63

I paid a lot of money and its been over two weeks now. And they still cant do my live scan. So I cant submit my papers. You would think that a place like this. Would have their s*** together but they dont. I would recommend this place to anyone. Im so disappointed.

Review №64

I highly recommend coming to this place. For someone who didnt know much before, they definitly made me feel welcome and were very helpful with my Guard Card training. They have great customer service and have honest and caring instructiors. No doubt that I will be back for more training!

Review №65

I had my guard card about 8 years ago and had a horrible experience with the other company that helped me so I never even put it to work, With Marshall security training academy the whole process was smooth and even my instructor shared some personal stories and scenarios of his time working as a guard Wich really cleared alot of things up for me. Highly recommend and will be returning for all courses they have available.

Review №66

Professionalism. Thats the main idea of this establishment. The location can easily give you the course and just let you be on your way but this place instructs you by the book and to the letter with professionalism. I would easily recommend this location to my close friends and family.

Review №77

I had to reschedule almost five times and actually the phone operator was really cool looks like they really are changing some things around here the owner is doing a fine job and running the place and along with the firearm instructors are really professional when I came in I felt right at home they have a bathroom and not to forget the prices on the guns phenomenal overall if I could give it a 10 star I would I believe the individuals that are giving bad reviews to these people are just common haters I saw no flaws in between and they definitely did handle the situation really professional Ill be recommending Marshall security to every other of my friends

Review №81

Anyone looking for a friendly, professional and affordable shooting range should check this place out. I originally found this place after searching for a training facility to get certified as a security officer. Their rates are reasonable and the quality of service and professionalism I received was superb; as the saying goes – you pay for what you get. The front desk staff was very friendly and answered all my questions. And the instructors are knowledgeable and beyond patient with the students, including myself. I heard from locals that this place was recently purchased by a new owner and has gone under some heavy renovation, so I’m excited to see what the new management does with the place.

Review №82

Review №97

I went to Marshalls to get my Guard Card earlier this week after finding it on google and I was impressed by the information I received. The Instructor was in the Military and then became a Security so he definitely knew how to handle his job and the material he was teaching was broken down in a way it was easily understandable. He taught everything from the book but then gave us examples of events you may get in the real world that just arent in the book. He also teaches actual law enforcement personnel, which made me more impressed on the location I came to get my Guard Card because Ive heard terrible stories of other places and how unprofessional they are and having a sketchy looking location.After the class was over, I waited to get my fingers printed for the Live Scan and the owner greeted us and informed us what else they have to offer. He then took his time to give us a tour of the place, which he didnt need to do but was completely generous of him. He informed us he was in law enforcement for many years.Overall, I am happy with the choice I made and I will definitely come back for more classes. For anyone that is looking for somewhere to get their guard Card or anything related to security/ guard jobs or even to find a shooting range then this is definitely the place to go to. They have the Knowledge and Experience that most places just dont have and they have a lot more to offer.

Review №98
