Three of the ICSE’s flagstone courses commence on Wednesday 7th January.  They are:

  • Door Security Procedures Training Course (QQI/FETAC Level 4 Course 4N1114)
  • Basic Guarding Skills (QQI/FETAC Level 4 Course 4N1118); and
  • combined Door and Guarding Skills Course (QQI/FETAC Level 4 Course 4N1114/ 4N1118).

Each QQI Security Training Galway course meets the training requirement for the corresponding Private Security Authority (PSA) security licence.  Successful completion of each of the courses enables the corresponding PSA security licence application to be made:

  • Door Security Training Limerick for the PSA Door Supervisor (Licensed Premises) Licence
  • Guarding Skills Training Limerick for the PSA Security Guarding (Static) Licence; and
  • Door and Guarding Skills Course Limerick for both the PSA Door Supervisor and Security Guarding Licences

Many of the subjects overlap that are undertaken in both the Door Procedures Training Course and the Guarding Skills.  Recognising this, the ICSE has developed a QQI Security Training Galway option which combines the two courses by adding one extra day to the standard four day course and offers the combined course at a hugely discounted price.

The ICSE has indicated that employers are more likely to employ staff who have both of the licences as they are more flexible and adaptable in work situations and environments. Successful completion of the combined QQI Security Training Galway Door Procedures and Static Guarding Course also opens up a wide range of security industry career choices.  Upon attainment of the two licences, careers can be sought in nightclubs, bars, hotels, stores, shopping centres, hospitals, building sites, festivals and events.

Should you prefer to focus on one career and apply for only the one relevant licence, then you may choose to undertake the specific course rather than the combined option.

There are a couple of places left on each course, so either give the ICSE a call to book your place on 091 534 918 or directly through the ICSE website at www.securityexcellence.net

Security Licence Identity Badge Guidelines

Guidelines for Individual Security Licence Identity Badges including PSA Issued Identity Cards

As of 1 September 2009 it has been a requirement that all licensed Door Supervisors and Security Guards working in Ireland must wear an identity badge whilst on duty. The primary reason for this is to show evidence that the security person is licensed under the Private Security Services Act 2004 (the Act). Section 30 of the Act specifically states that a licence holder must wear an identity badge while providing a security service.

The Private Security Authority (PSA) who administers the Act developed strict guidelines for the identity badges in its document ‘Identity Badge Guidelines – July 2012’.

The Guideline states that licence holders can either wear the Licence Identity Card issued by the PSA as their identity badge, or can wear an identity badge provided by their employer. Identity badges provided by employers must meet the Identity Badge Guidelines.

In November 2014 the PSA re-issued the Identity Badge Guidelines to remind individuals and employers of their requirements. This was as a result of inspections undertaken by the PSA where it was noted that there were shortcomings in the wearing and displaying of the identity badges. The PSA has a link to the Identity Badge Guidelines on their website.

Subsequent to this the PSA has announced that it is introducing a new look Identity Card. This is primarily to make some of the key features and information more visible. This new look PSA Licence Identity Card is to be introduced by the PSA over the coming weeks. The four key features of the new Licence Identity Card are:

• the orange background on the face of the current card is being replaced by a yellow background
• the size of the licence number on the front of the card is being increased
• the size of the expiry date is being increased; and
• the addition of a line advising licence holders that “The card must be worn at all times while on duty” on the back of the card.

The old cards will be replaced over the next two years with licence holders receiving the new Licence Identity Card as they renew their licence.

Door and Static Guard Training Limerick Course Christmas Graduates

To continue the International Centre for Security Excellence’s (ICSE) quest to ensure that everyone has access to a Security Training Course, is its latest combined Door and Static Guard Training Limerick course. The five day combined FETAC Level 4 QQI Security Training Limerick Course on Static Guard Training Limerick and Door Security Procedures Limerick finished today.

Just in time for the Christmas holiday demand, the graduates of this course are well prepared and trained to move into the Private Security Industry. There has been plenty of positive feedback already from attendees stating that they really enjoyed the Security Training course in Limerick. They also said that they now feel well equipped, confident and ready to work in the Security Industry in time for the busy Christmas and New Year period.

The FETAC Level 4 Door and Static Guard Training Limerick Course is a combined five day course. Successful completion of the course offers graduates the opportunity to apply for both the PSA Door Supervisor (Licensed Premises) Licence and the PSA Security Guarding (Static) Licence. Attainment of both of these licences enables licensees to work as both a Door Supervisor and a Security Guard. The ICSE has found that as each licence only allows the holder to work within a specific area employers are more inclined to hire staff with both licences. Such was the awareness of the students who finished the combined course today.

Successful completion of the QQI Door and Static Guard Training Limerick has provided the students with a basic understanding of practical door security duties and procedures, and to be able to work within the mainstream static and the retail security industries. Today’s graduates:

• have a general knowledge of the door security and manned guarding sectors
• are able to demonstrate a number of practical security procedures
• can demonstrate an awareness of the roles of door supervisor and security officer; and
• have attained the qualifications required to apply for both a PSA Static Guard Licence and a PSA Door Supervisor Licence.
