About Qualified Manager Exam Subject Matter Experts

The Bureau is looking for new Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) within the private security, private investigator, alarm, collateral recovery, and locksmith industries. As an expert, you will have the opportunity to contribute to your profession by assisting the Bureau in its Occupational Analysis and Exam Development processes. Your knowledge and experience as a qualified manager are essential for the success of this process.

SMEs enter into a 3-year contract with the state of California, which allows participants to be paid $200/per day and includes meal reimbursements. Flights and accommodations are prepaid by the Bureau, while mileage is reimbursed at a rate of $0.625 per mile in accordance with State guidelines.

The Office of Professional Examination Services (OPES) conducts an occupational analysis to identify critical job activities performed by the industries qualified managers. This information is later applied in the Exam Development workshops, where SMEs revise and improve the qualified manager exams for future use.

To qualify you must be a licensed Qualified Manager, actively working as a Qualified Manager, and be in good standing with the Bureau.
