Adults who completed Door Supervisor training marked their achievements at a celebration event.

The event on 30 November at Uxbridge College recognised the achievements of individuals who had completed free training under schemes for unemployed people.

The qualifications create foundations for those who want to join the ranks of the private security sector.

The event took place at the Hayes Community Campus and Debbie Logue from training partner Beyond Basics presented the certificates. Guest speakers included Brian Sims from Security Management Today Online (SMT) and Liam Mulkeirins from Perfectus Security.

The Door Supervisor's Certificate encompasses the statutory four-day, Security Industry Authority (SIA)-approved training course. The ten-days of instruction was developed and delivered by Uxbridge College in partnership with security industry specialist Beyond Basics Training and adds the new skills sets required by a modern security officer. Additional course modules include the statutory four-day first aid at work, fire marshalling (including practical fire fighting), customer service and report writing.

Harpal Lehal, Head of Employer Services at Uxbridge College, said: "It was brilliant to see some of the many adults Uxbridge College trains through its wide range of schemes celebrating their achievements. Vocational qualifications such as these are well worth doing because they create so many opportunities for the people who do them. Congratulations to all our achievers on the Door Supervisor's course."

Speaking on the night to the mixture of graduates, guarding company managers and College representatives, SMT's Editor Brian Sims said: "Regulation is the key. The SIA's regime has realised the first-ever qualifications for so many people, and is helping pave the way for many more newcomers to the sector.

"The industry is in need of fresh blood. People with new ideas to bring to the party. We need dynamism. We now have a sense of increased professionalism across the sector.

"Security is the most important topic on this nation's agenda. Make it your career. Make the sector your home, and make it your profession, too."
