If you want to become a Pennsylvania Act 235 certified security officer, you have to apply to be accepted into the Pennsylvania State Police Lethal Weapons Training program. The application process requires that you pass a psychological exam, a physical exam, and a criminal background check.

Our office runs Act 235 Lethal Weapons Certification Examination Sessions during which you can take your psychological examination with a PA licensed psychologist.

Psychological Exam

We do the Act 235 psychological exam on selected Saturdays in Stroudsburg, PA. The exam is administered by Dr. Dustan A. Barabas, P.C., who is a PA licensed psychologist. Our exam sessions begin promptly at 8:00AM and there are limited spaces, register today! Dr. Barabas’ fee for the psychological scheduled Saturday examination service is $310.

If you can’t make it to our scheduled Saturday exam sessions, you can also call 570-629-4900 to make an appointment at our Stroudsburg, PA location during the weekday. Dr. Barabas’ fee for the psychological exam by appointment is $310.

I went through several psychologists before meeting Dr. Barabas. He is far easier to talk to and unlike 2 of the others, doesn’t interrupt every 5 seconds with why do you feel like this or what makes you act this way. I can go on for 20 mins and when I’m done with a rant he is right there ready to discuss. He is also very friendly and straightforward.

Dr Barabas is wonderful. He is kind and very understanding. He is also doesn’t judge the people in the situation he talks to you about how things could change even if you change one little thing. He is very soft spoken and not intimidating. I would highly recommend Dr. Barabas to anyone.

Dr. Barabas was very patient, understanding, and extremely helpful. The visits and the techniques he shared helped me significantly with the social anxiety associated with public speaking I was experiencing. A big thanks to Dr. Barabas and his staff!
