Security HR trains to SIA standards, all our London based security guard courses are available.
Physical Intervention training was introduced in the summer of 2010. Since then prospective Door Supervisors have been required to undergo physical intervention training as part of their Door Supervision course. This qualification is at level 2.
This course is for Door Supervision trainers/tutors. Once a tutor is approved to teach physical intervention, it must be renewed or refreshed yearly. This qualification is at Level 3.
The skills are approved by the SIA. The test is the ability to use minimum force when necessary to disengage a potential aggressor or escort him out of the premises. Although there is emphasis on a potential aggressor, the skills have many positive applications, such as guiding the sick or the drunk and physically comforting a customer that may be unwell and requires a little physical support to a waiting taxi.
The physical techniques may vary depending on the organisation that provided training programme. If you switch from one training programme to another, we call this ‘crossover course’. On the other hand, if you stay with your existing programme, you’ll need to refresh your skills every 12 months. We call this a ‘refresher course’.
