Do you need to become Act 235 Certified in Pennsylvania to be eligible to step up to an armed security job? Do you want to work as an armed security guard, armored truck guard, alarm response guard, or as a night watchman? Do you need to carry a firearm, or any other lethal weapon, in your work as a Private Investigator, Bodyguard, or Bail Bondsman? If so, Pennsylvania's Act 235 requires that you pass a psychological examination performed by a licensed psychologist.

Similarly, if you're applying for a law enforcement position in a municipal, county, or state police agency, or applying to attend a private police academy, you must become Act 120 Certified in Pennsylvania. This requires passing the Act 120 psychological examination performed by a licensed psychologist.
