Prep for License Exams for Alarm Contractors, Private Detectives, and Private Security Contractors

shutterstock_1303768399.jpgFor those looking to enter the fields of private alarm contractor, private detective, or private security contractor, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) offers licensing exams twice a year in September and March. To assist those who are preparing to take a licensing exam, Williams & Nickl, LLC is again offering study-review sessions. We have helped hundreds of past participants successfully achieve their licenses.

The next scheduled date for all of the examinations is Wednesday, September 07, 2022, with an application deadline of July 22, 2022. However, the testing company strongly recommends submitting your application in sooner.

Our prep classes will take place on the following dates:

Private Alarm Contractor

  • Thursday, August 18 and Friday, August 19, 2022 - 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

  • Seminar Cost $1,650.00

Security Contractor and Private Detective Exam Prep

  • Tuesday, August 16 and Wednesday August 17, 2022 - 10:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.

Seminar Costs:

  • Private Detective Exam Prep Seminar $1,525.00

  • Security Contractor Exam Prep Seminar $1,525.00

  • Combined Security Contractor and Private Detective Exam Prep $1,725.00

If you qualify for both the Private Security Contractor and the Private Detective licenses, you may choose to take a combination exam for both licenses at the same time. However, you must apply for each licensing exam separately. You will only be taking one exam, but you must apply and pay for each license fee separately.

Our exam prep courses will be held via Zoom. You should have a good internet connection for the live video conference, which will include a lecture and PowerPoint presentation. Visit our seminar page for more details on what each course will cover and prep course registration. There are also links to the license eligibility requirements and exam registration.

In 27 years, we have helped over 1,895 private detectives and private security contractors pass their examinations. In the last 16 years, we have helped over 400 alarm contractor applicants pass their exams. While passing the examination is not guaranteed, we allow participants in our prep classes to retake the seminar as many times as they need to pass, without further fees. For those in need of additional help, we will provide one-on-one tutoring.
