I booked the full CSP package with Get Licensed. All ready done theDoor Supervisor and CCTV courses. So far so good. I passed both was a walk in the park. Going on the next exciting handcuffing course.
Over all I had a good time with the trainers each time I have attended. They are quite speedy with the reply over emails plus I dont like waiting on the phone.

Just want to say thanks to Get Licensed. Got both my licences today in the post (after getting CCTV training and Door Supervisor training at Get Licensed). Th CCTV course was so much informative and fun. I signed up to the CSP course with them and got a big discount. Thanks a lot Get Licensed and also thanks to Anthony the trainer!

My CCTV course with Tom was brilliant. He made learning fun and interactive! The only down side was that not everything in the test was told to us, so some of the answers had to be guess.
Overall though, I would deffinately use them again. They were recommended to me and I would pass that recommendation on!

I have done not just one but a few courses with Get Licensed. Luckily I had Ramy as the trainer both the times. Such professional chap with humor. Did not get bored at any point of the training. CCTV course was a bit dull before but the DS course was amazing. PI training is fun and I got a job some time after... I am working at the doors on weekends mostly had enjoy it. Thanks to get licensed for taking care of me and the training..
 
If you dont want any problems and go for an authentic and decent reputable company.. go for get licensed.... 2 trainers i came across.. both were fantastic... my certificates took 18 days to come.. not bad at all.....
