It covers the new elements of the Door Supervisor course that have been added in the last three years.
It is in two parts, Safety Awareness and Physical Intervention.
You will spend a large part of the course doing Physical Intervention. This involves physical activity and some risk. To minimise the risk we insist on a strict code of behaviour and limiting practice only to techniques that we teach from an SIA approved programme.
Candidates must wear appropriate clothing (e.g. track suit, rubber soled or training shoes). All jewellery has to be taken off so it’s best left at home.
