Global Horizon Skills is running two courses in June – our popular SIA Door Supervisors training course and the SIA CCTV training course. You can book them online but why not learn a little bit more about why these licenses could be just what you need to take your work in a new direction or simply improve your skills in your current role?

If you want to work as a bouncer at an event or the entrance to a business requiring door-level security to safeguard its activities then you’ll need licensing from the Security Industry Authority (The SIA). This requires four days of training modules with Global Horizon Skills before sitting exams to obtain the license. As you can imagine, this covers all of the essentials like conflict management and physical intervention skills.

You’ll need to be 18 or over, pass an identity check, criminal record check and have your qualification from us to apply for the license from the SIA. This license is required for many of the posted security jobs in Northern Ireland today on and widely recognised across the UK as being an essential skill of any applicant. This ensures best practice and legal adherence for both you, your employer and the public. Find out more about the legal requirements on the government’s website here.

If you’ve done work as a bouncer or security guard and have held an SIA Door Supervisor licence you can have it renewed by training with us. But have you considered taking on additional security training to further your career?

CCTV is everywhere today in the UK. It’s hard to get from home to work without being recorded on half a dozen security surveillance cameras. As such, it takes a lot of skilled people to monitor this footage. With privacy becoming an issue we hear about daily on the news where technology is concerned, it’s no surprise that CCTV operators must hold the correct licensing.

Taking your career into this field starts with training at Global Horizon Skills, our upcoming course lasts three days and assessment, designed to teach the essentials of using CCTV to monitor members of the public and look for particular individuals, including the equipment commonly found to carry this out. The law and best practices are covered on the course, as well as your expectations as a CCTV operator in a relevant job role.

If you’ve got any queries regarding our upcoming courses or about the other security training courses we offer, just call us today on 028 8225 6772. Don’t forget we can deliver training at one of our regional training centres in Omagh, Belfast, Coleraine and Derry~Londonderry – OR at your premises, on-site if you have group bookings.
