As of 2007, SORA training is mandated for all contract security positions throughout New Jersey. SORA training is a 3 step process to be completed within a 30 day period. These steps currently include registration with the New Jersey State Police (NJSP), completing a 24 hour training program with a NJSP certified instructor, and fingerprinting. Proper government issued identification is required for each step.


If you need any help with the three (3) step process, we will be happy to assist.

SORA is a 3 step process:

First: A core function of the SORA process is the completion of a SORA Training class. It is strongly suggested that you identify a training class FIRST. Please visit and register for a SORA certification class by calling (609)276-7953. To attend this class you need two forms of government issued ID (one with photo), a copy of your 30 Day Temporary Certificate (next step) and your payment. I do accept personal checks. Once you register for this class you will be sent a confirmation text/email.

Second: It is MANDATORY to register with the State Police. You may register at You will not be able to attend class if you do not register with the State Police. When you complete your registration with the State Police you must print out two forms; the MorphoTrak Fingerprint Form and the 30 day Temporary Certificate. You need two copies of the 30 Day Temporary Certificate, one copy for your records and bring one copy on the day of class.

NOTE: If you have any questions or concerns call my office at (609) 276-7953.

Third: Complete a fingerprint scan at a MorphoTrak. We recommend that you enroll via their website at

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE YOUR FINGERPRINTS DONE TO ATTEND THE CLASS, however it is STRONGLY recommended that you make an appointment as soon as possible. It often takes at least 2-3 weeks to get an appointment. Calling them and providing your information via phone leaves the possibility of a communication error. You MUST show up on time with either a valid drivers license or government-issued ID card. These are the ONLY forms of ID they accept and your paperwork. If you do not show up on time, you may be turned away.
