Guard Cards are valid for two years from the date of issue and allow you to work for any PPO (what is a PPO?) or "in-house" PSO security or protective services provider in the State of California.  A Guard Card DOES NOT allow you to work as a security "independent agent / contractor" but only as an employee (with taxes taken out of your paycheck) of a PPO or PSO.
