“I completed the Security Supervisory Management course with ICSE and work for me has never been better. The knowledge I learned from the course gave me a better understanding of how the management side of security works and it also gave me great confidence and to go about completing my day to day jobs and tasks.

As a direct result of competing the course I have been promoted to site recruitment officer and training leader working under my supervisor and management within the company and Human Resources Dept. My new role involves putting together new training methods and identifying new training needs for the staff on site. In Sept I have been put forward to be assistant site supervisor, all based on the knowledge, skills and experience I gained from the course.

Every day I use information I learned on the course in doing my work more effectively. This has cut out time wasted looking into solutions to problems. So again many thanks to the team there in ICSE….Getting the point across that this course is brilliant for any supervisor in the security industry or thinking of being a supervisor, as training becomes compulsory, would be my main thing I would say. The confidence it gives you is massive as well. I can’t recommend the course and team at ICSE highly enough”

Niall Dempsey Security Supervisory Management, Distinction.

Who is this course for?

This programme is traditionally completed by those at supervisory level within their organisation or the Irish Private Security Industry. Many candidates also attend that have experience within the sector and feel its time for them to move on to more senior positions within their organisation or within the industry. On completion of the training programme, participants will have developed the knowledge and skills required by those engaged in or wishing to progress to management level within a security company or department.

Successful candidates will gain an understanding of the duties and responsibilities of a supervisor as well as techniques for training and assessing staff. Trainees on this programme also develop their skills in delivering assignments, staff welfare and operational supervision.

Course Duration

QQI level 6 courses are comprised of 150 hours learning. Of this, 50 hours is direct contact between the trainer and learner. The balance is allocated towards home study by the learner.

This programme is delivered through a blended learning approach with 6 days direct contact between trainer and student over three weeks. This course duration allows the participants the correct amount of time to complete the required self-directed aspect of the programme. Participants are also required to complete some pre-course work, practice, study and reflection. Learners complete a home study element of the course prior to attending the training programme which covers the more theoretical aspects of the programme. The more practical aspects and skills learning are developed during the class room days.

If you are returning to education for the first time in a long time please don’t be put off by the home study aspect. It’s our job to help you through the process and this programme was designed with you in mind. The course materials and learning aids are second to none and our trainers and admin staff are here to help with every aspect of the process.
