On May 29, 1997, the Alabama State Legislature established the Alabama Electronic Security Board of Licensure (AESBL) by enacting Act 97-711 (Code of Alabama, Section 34-1A). The AESBL statute requires that all persons working in the alarm and/or locksmith businesses be licensed in the State of Alabama. Such licensure would include the required training for the applicant’s discipline and a state/federal background check.

Why do I need to be licensed?
