A good security guard will not stand out to anyone except other security guards. This is because a security guard’s role is to ensure that everything goes smoothly and there is not any reason for them to take visible action. If you think from the point of view of a consumer, the idea of a prominent security guard will make them feel uneasy as the presence of visible security personnel reinforces the idea, however accurate or otherwise, that there may be violence in the air and that their safety might be compromised somehow.


This four day course is designed to train new Security Officers employed in industrial or commercial premises, to achieve the required accreditation enabling the application for an SIA License in Security Guarding.  This course culminates in three multiple-choic exams. The normal fees for this course are prices at £99

How Security Guard Training Different from Door Supervisor Training

Security guards perform many of the same tasks as Door Supervisors, with the main difference being that a security guard does not take the same “front of house” role that a Door Supervisor does. Nonetheless, the tasks of a security guard are equally important for ensuring that there is a peaceful, secure atmosphere wherever they are employed. It may fall to a security guard to take the ultimate sanction and eject someone from the premises, however in most cases there is a range of options before that should ever become necessary. Security guard training is designed to give the prospective security guard a thorough grounding in what these are and how they should be deployed.

SIA Security Guarding License allows you to work in the security industry as the following:

• Retail Security• Security Guard• Security Officer• Static Security Officer• Corporate Security Officer• Relief Officer• Concierge
