  • introduction to working in the private security industry
  • introduction to working as a door supervisor
  • recognising, defusing and resolving conflict situations
  • physical intervention skills
  • relevant health and safety, including emergency procedures
  • how the law applies to door supervision and legal issues
  • effective  communication

Unfortunately, there is a lot of poor quality door supervision training out there – from trainers that have very little experience or industry knowledge.

IBA UK were in the security business before the SIA was formed. We understand the door supervision business inside-out, from defusing conflict to the legal implications of physical intervention. We can train you and your staff to a high standard of professionalism. After our expert training, most of our trainees find the actual assessments straightforward, and our pass rate is high.
