    Door Supervisor Security Training Course

    We recommend to all our clients to consider the Door Supervisor Training Course.

    A Qualified Door Supervisor can legally work in a wider variety of roles than a Security Officer. Although the course seems 2 days longer, this opens a wider range of employment opportunity for candidates. A Door Supervisor can work for all the sectors that a Security Officer might be limited to, as the Door Supervisors have an extra physical intervention technique training added on to their course, which helps them to monitor and control the physical disturbances act, that highly occurs in alcohol-serving areas such as bars, pubs, events and festival.
