In Pennsylvania, if you want to work armed in a security position, you must obtain Act 235 certification to carry a firearm or other lethal weapon on the job. Act 235 certification is administered by the Pennsylvania State Police Lethal Weapons Certification program.
The application process for Act 235 certification involves the following steps:
- Fill out an online application and get fingerprinted
- Pass a psychological exam conducted by a PA licensed psychologist
- Pass a physical exam conducted by a PA licensed physician
Dr. Bruce Eimer is a PA licensed psychologist and certified Act 235 security agent who can help you through all three steps in this process.

NOTE: In Pennsylvania, you cannot use your personal license to carry firearms for any employment that requires you to carry a firearm. The PA license to carry firearms is for self-defense only. For any type of armed employment, you have to be Act 235 certified through the Pennsylvania lethal weapons program.
