Every armored car guard, other than a police officer, employed by an armored car carrier shall be required to satisfactorily complete a qualified firearms training course. Such course shall include appropriate range instruction by a qualified firearms instructor, and range qualification with each type and caliber of firearm he or she will have access to while on duty.


Such course shall be given and administered by armored car carriers or their designees. Every armored car carrier shall maintain a record of and certify to the secretary, in writing, the satisfactory completion of such course by any armored car guard.


Nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit an armored car carrier from voluntarily providing training programs and courses which exceed the minimum requirements provided by this section.


The commissioner shall waive the training requirements specified in subdivision one of this section, with respect to applicants employed by armored car carriers, if the applicant provides appropriate documentation to demonstrate that he or she was or is subject to training requirements which meet or exceed the requirements established pursuant to such subdivision.


An armored car guard who has been or was previously employed as a peace officer for eighteen months or more who exhibits a valid certificate awarded pursuant to subdivision six of section 2.30 of the criminal procedure law attesting to his or her satisfactory completion of the training requirements imposed by section 2.30 of the criminal procedure law, shall be exempt from the requirements of subdivision one of this section, provided that such peace officer has completed a course of firearms training recognized by the division. Nothing in this subdivision shall be deemed to authorize such guard to carry, possess, repair or dispose of a firearm unless the appropriate license therefor has been issued pursuant to section 400.00 of the penal law.
