How are your security training courses delivered?
Our security training courses are delivered on a weekend basis. For example, the door supervisors course will be delivered over the course of one weekend with pre-reading and guided tutor support before you attend your first weekend.
The idea here is to study some of the theory first, which is then be reinforced when you attend your training weekend.
This is where you will cover a lot of the practical to ensure you leave fully competent as a professional in your security career.
Where required, an additional weekend will be put on for groups that require the additional learning time at no extra cost.
You will really enjoy your training with our tutors. Each weekend is planned to be engaging, with as much practical as possible.
What will I be studying?
You will be learning new skills such as tactical communications, conflict resolution, law and much more. You will be trained to recognise warning signs when dealing with members of the public and more, such as:
- Identifying the differences between defensive physical skills and physical interventions.
