Training

In the past, the function of security training was generally restricted to the protection of company property against traditional crimes. Security was seen as irritation, or an ornamental misinformed figure usually incapable of anything outside the simplest of door gazing routines.

In recent years the situation has changed dramatically. Our environment is fraught with a multiplicity of new and different risks which pose greater threats to the economy of the country, health, well being and safety of people.

Subsequently security is accepted more than ever as an essential business discipline. Demands from the business and public sectors has led to the widening of the security training field to an unprecedented level in the local security industry and to the professionalization of the security function. Courses are set out to discipline and groom security officers to supply the best service under all circumstances.

COURSE CONTENT:
Codes of discipline; Duties of a Security Guard; General Code of Conduct; Behaviour and Attitude; Access Control; Patrolling and Crime Detection; Communication; Strike Action and Reaction; Safety Signs; Fire Fighting and Prevention; Site Checking; Bombs – Discovery and Identification; Company documentation; Dog Training; Firearm Training; Emergency Procedures.

ON SITE TRAINING:
No training would be complete without practical on-site training, where guards are exposed to the “real thing”. Regular evaluations and refresher courses are conducted randomly and monthly. This is done through visiting the site at scheduled intervals. On-site training also enables guards to carry out specific tasks in specialized environs.

PARADING AND POSTING:

Guards are paraded and inspected prior to each shift to ensure that they are sober and adequately equipped to perform the duties expected of them. Following the inspection parade, each man reports to a duty driver (or supervisor) for further scrutiny to ensure every guard is delivered as required.
