*** We strongly recommend to all our customers who are considering the Security Guard training course that they consider the Door Supervisor training course instead. Qualified Door Supervisors can legally work in all of the same roles as Security Guards. In addition, they can also work in licensed premises such as bars, clubs, events and festivals, which Security Guards may not be able to work in if alcohol is being served. A Door Supervisor qualification will enable candidates to perform a far wider variety of roles and will greatly increase their chances of finding employment.***
