Door Supervision or Security Guarding Course in Northern Ireland
On a daily basis we receive on average three or four phone calls or emails asking us why should I do a door supervision or security guarding course?
Reason being is that a lot of security trained personnel keep thinking that the Door Supervison course is a better qualification to hold, and that they should pay the extra and gain the licence.
A lot of people will tell you that the two courses are alike and there is not much of a difference; however one is specifically directed towards the licensed trade (Door Supervision) and the other is more suited for front line staff in respect to the retail or commercial sectors and also reflects other general tasks.
We always advise and make sure that you know exactly what you want to do as a job role, if you are certain you are never going to work as a door supervisor then don’t put yourself through it.
The attraction we have found relates to the interest in the Physical Intervention module as this gives you another qualification and licence to disengage and hold a potential threatening person; it is also very appealing to security organisations as it is something they can use to win over tenders or a specific client that they may want to work for, but again I would ask you to think about your own physical fitness and if you are fit enough to go through a day’s training, but in its defence it is not as physically demanding as a course in Control & Restraint that is used by the PSNI.
Before deciding on Door Supervision or Security Guarding Course in Northern Ireland we suggest that you talk to us first as we have worked within the training licence area since it first began in England and Wales, and then carried through into Scotland and now here in Northern Ireland. You also want to make sure you choose the right course to suit the role that you want to move into within the security industry so as to ensure the cost you pay and licence issued suits your needs.
