*** 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.***

Booked my course with get licensed then I read qype and got a bit scared of the comments and thought my money was gone. None of that happened and I just got my results. Special thanks to Tom for the enjoyable 3 days of training.

I signed up for Security Guard training (which I upgraded to Door Supervisor without a problem during the training session) and CCTV Operator. Both courses were very comprehensive and informative and both Instructors were very knowledgeable, organised and entertaining. I had an amazing time, it felt like taking a vacation and now I have two SIA licenses to show for it. I am definitely signing up for the Certified Security Professional course. As I think it will advance my career in Security.

I have recently attended the three day Security Guard Training course in Manchester through 'Get Licensed'. The well structured course was presented clearly and professionally.  The course trainer I had was down to earth, and had a lot of experience and knowledge about what he was teaching, which made the course alot easier, especially when your in a classroom for hours on end staring at powerpoint. I will definately be using Get Licensed in the future, many thanks.

The get licensed course i took at first was the security guarding but when i got to the day i changed because i felt there were more jobs out there if i did the door supervisor course ( you can do security guarding as well ). it was 45 pound to change which i didnt think was bad. the course trainer we had was a guy called Chris who was proper down to earth, had a lot of experience and knew his stuff which made the days so easy going so by the time the exams came there was no worries. i would say to any on book your SIA courses with get licensed. ILL BE USING THEM AGAIN IN THE FUTURE *****

Initially when I first started the course, I was a little worried that it meant boring lectures.
 
However, it turned out to be very educational sessions. Our lecturer appeared to be a very experienced, funny and patient man. His lecturing materials had made my security guard training course easier to digest. I would be very surprised if anyone could failed their exams after paying attention to his lectures.
 
I was doing a Security Guard Course then but now I'm looking forward to my Close Protection Course which shall award me a Certified Security Professionals status.
 
I shall always recommend Get Licensed to anyone.

It was a very informative course, I was surprised by how much I learned from the security guard training at Get Licensed. The instructor was friendly and funny, while still giving the feel of a security officer of his qualifications. He inspired me to continue my training further than I had initally intended. I upgraded from Security Guard to Door Supervisor, and plan to take First Aid next. I had expected a long and boring course, but while long, it was surprisingly fun and was over sooner than I realized.
