I really enjoyed the door supervisor course in which Matthew was our lecturer, his knowledge in the security industry is top notch and I think everyone over the weekend enjoyed learning from him and being in his presence ! Great course overall and 5 stars especially for Matthew, Thank You Shane

Just got my results for my Door Supervisor course. Passed without any problems and got the resutls quickly. The course was very good for the money. Four days felt like a long time, I thought the course could have been covered quicker but it was definitely thorough. Our trainer was very good and very entertaining with lots of funny stories from his experiences on the door. Would recommend.

Just completed my SIA DS Course on Sunday in Portsmouth. Im a former doorman and gave up just as SIA came into legislation, how things have changed! Good experience so far, called and booked, got a discount, email confirmation of receipt, booking, e learning requirements etc within minutes. Nice venue, Hilton Hotel. Awesome trainer, Davey, very entertaining, easy to get on with and learn from, spiced up things with entertaining stories and videos to go with the syllabus. Completion of the course requires 4 long days inc saturday and sunday in our case but all bases were covered and while im vastly experienced i feel better knowing current law and legislation. Only gripe is the PI is very limited due to the dreamland the SIA seem to live in, have none of them worked on the door before?? just waiting for my exam results now and have work waiting pending these so thank you guys! All in all a great experience from start to finish. just dont delay my results guys...  :)

I signed up for a DS Training course with Get Licensed, didn’t quite know what to expect. But as soon as the training started, I was very impressed! Our instructor was very knowledgeable and very accommodating. For what you get I thought the price was spot on. Got my results after 4 days too!

I paid to do my Door Supervisor training with another company who ripped me off. Took my money but never ran the course, still waiting for a refund. I would definitely recommend Get Licensed for those people who want a trustworthy company to do their training. Helped me a lot. Thanks!

The venue for Door Supervisor course was comfortable for the number of attendees, there was enough room for everybody to move around however the parking sucks big time. Hell, it was expensive.

I originally book my sia ds training for the Waterloo center, i was called 3 days before to inform me it had been moved to croydon, I found the course very informative and the instructor we had was brilliant, he had a vast knowledge on all aspects of the security industry and also had a lot of first had expirence which he had no issues sharing with the class good or bad, i think his name was chris not 100% (south african guy) he was a really cool dude. refreshments were provided and topped up thought out the day (biscuit, tea, coffee ect) unfortunately its gone past 14 days and I am still waitting for my results, it sucks cause i really want to keep the ball rolling and start applying for work. All in all it was a positive experience and would recommend anyone intersted to sign up.

Was thoroughly impressed by the course as a whole, the trainer Chris was hugely experienced and knowledgeable and left no stone un-turned as far as questions myself and the rest of the group on the Door Supervisor course had.   The course itself was very informative and each module was clear and easy to understand, with Chris going into depth on everything aswell as his own personal experiences. I would reccomend this course to anyone and feel I got my moneys worth out of the course and picked up some good skills and knowledge.   My only concern was with the physical intervention, having studied martial arts myself for 6 years (namely Japanese Ju Jitsu) - I feel that the ""home office approved"" techniques taught weren't the greatest to say the least, I was horrified to see specifially the ""leading"" technique by holding a persons arm leaving their other totally free to do anything from punch you in the face, reach into his pocket for a knife or pick up a bottle and smash it into your face. I do however praise the use of the fence position as this has been proven by the likes of Geoff Thompson to be effective out there in the real world. (I realise this isn't Get-Licensed fault so it takes nothing away from them)   Other than that, an excellent SIA Door Supervisor course, excellent trainer and I am thoroughly impressed with get licensed.
