Your absolutely right mate, and with that in mind I would post it. Except theres no way in hell Im sending any business in the direction of that sort of course.
Figures wise though:
£1400 is the cheapest I've seen posted that Ive been able to personally confirm, for a 14 day course which was able to be whittled down to £1200 after negotiation. That included the first aid; which interestingly enough would make for 18 days training being carried out in 14. Assuming an 11 hour day EXCLUDING breaks.
The cheapest I've heard of on the grapevine is £900 for the two weeks. Other than that there is the infamous yet not proven £250 one.

This explains the number of dipsticks that can't talk their way out of a wet paper bag and think thuggery is the only way that seem to be getting their CP badges and trying to lord it over people.... most of the ones I've met not even fit to steward
ptg: The only thing a CP badge shows is that the owner has splashed a few quid and had between 2 -4 weeks training. Badges mean nothing, experience, contacts (phone numbers not bullets), integrity and professionalism are what it’s about.
I think in the era of the SIA individuals are getting hung up on badges & qualification, don’t get me wrong qualifications are great but no substitute for experience.
Something else I've heard twice over the last six months from different people:
"My Granny paid for my course and badge" - some birthday pressie if they're never gonna (be able) to use it! I was reluctant to get my door badge because I prefer the stewarding side of things, but would never of asked someone else to get it for me at the time I didn't really plan on using it
