Changes to Door Security Procedures & Guarding Skills Courses 2013

On 6 November 2012, FETAC completed its amalgamation with HETAC, NQAI and IUQB and a new integrated agency, Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI), was established.

On the 12 of December 2012 the FETAC Level 4 Door Security Procedures and FETAC Level 4 Static Guard course were replaced by two new Level 4 Awards. These new awards now have a prescribed total study time of 100 hours.

In order to ensure the continued quality of our programmes  and to minimise the impact of these changes on our industry ICSE has designed, developed and delivered these new validated programmes in a blended manner using the latest specifically created training aids and manuals. In 2013 ICSE will continue to deliver our quality training programmes in a blended manner through a mixture of class room contact hours, practice time, pre course preparation, study time & reflection time. We continue to develop training aids and instructional DVD's that will also assist in reducing the amount of required class room time making our training provision as cost effective as possible for both our learners and our industry.

You can view our course calander here and also our new Combined Door Security & Static Guarding Skills course information here.
