Becoming a Trainer

Postby 99andcoe » 03 Feb 2012, 21:05

Hello guys,

I've been working in the Security Industry for just over 1 year in a non front line control room.
At the beginning of this week i attending my Door Supervisors course and found it quite a revelation! I understand that i am very new to the security industry and that i have a long way to go before I can start pursuing the route on delivering and invigilating SIA approved training courses, but where should i start?

I am confident within myself, and believe that with the correct training I could work very well in this side of the industry, making my own mark on the up and coming security personnel hitting the doors, gatehouses ect. I can confirm i will not forget the 2 Guys who taught me, Chris & Marcus.

Also what's the estimated prices of the training and qualifications to do this? Also abit of a long shot but is there any companies out there take potential trainers on to teach them? and then provide them with a position? Because I feel that I could get every qualification out there but surly gaining experience is also key?

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Andy

Teaching people to pass their SIA licence and teaching them how to be a doorman/guard are two different things and the only real way to be able to do the second one is to go and do it yourself. If you've never done the job yourself, how could you show others how to do it?

I am by no means someone who has this experience, I've never worked a door either.

When you have worked the doors, done static/corporate retail etc for about 5-6 years, then at that point you may be in a position to teach the courses, or you could join Get Licencious tomorrow! See one, do one teach one was never more appropriate unless you intend to teach control room ops.
It takes more than good intentions and a big bloke on the door.

I am not intending in getting into training tommorow, i do understand that i need to work hard at the job to learn the skills to pass on!!

The point i am asking is so i can start taking the steps to get the correct qualifications so when the times right im ready to rock and roll, as it can be costly...

There is actually a dedicated course I believe, have a look in the training courses section, they are up quite often.

I don't know if this is relevant to you, but I work for Elite Urban Defence Academy Ltd I do am only the Secretary and have not worked on the doors myself so you probably know more about this than me but you can choose whether my advice is relevant or not.
We are going to be starting a CPD course "Confidence and Awareness in Security". We also provide combatives training that includes scenario training.
It's not a course to become a trainer but we do have a free networking event coming up to also promote out new "C.A.S." course and we also train a wide range of people from, Directors of Security Companies, Door Supervisors, CP Operatives etc
I think networking is the key to this Industry as the people that do the job, tell each other what courses are worth doing with what company and where best to start.
If our gym in Southampton is too far away for you to attend our networking event it might be a good idea to check through forums and add sites for other events around the country.
Hope this helps, if not disregard lol
Good luck Andy!
