But we often need help investing in ourselves and our future because we are worried about other commitments. 

The great news is that the security officer and door supervisor courses are short courses. And each course will equip you with the skills to serve as a security officer. Additionally, if you take the slightly longer door supervisor course, you‘ll be able to work in places where alcohol is served. 

The security officer course takes just four days, and the door supervisor course takes six days. So in around a week, you will have completed your training. Of course, there is much more to learn, and you won’t know everything in just a few short days. But you will have learned the skills necessary to gain your licence and get your first job, where more experienced security officers will help you learn and progress in your role. 

We pack a lot of learning into each day so that the overall length of the course is shorter in days. So you will usually have to attend from 8 am to 6:30 pm for the door supervisor training and from 8 am to 6 pm for the security officer course.

There are also courses in Scotland, Wales and all over England. Wherever you are, you’ll be able to find a local course, even if you are relying on public transport. So, there’s no need to worry about picking up a hefty hotel bill.
