Staff rotas, employment legislation, risk assessments, planning patrols, handling major and minor incidents, proactive task analysis, appraisals, training needs analysis and many more functions of security management are covered along with live simulations and desktop exercises to put new abilities into practice. Refining and developing existing skill sets are an integral part of this qualification where you will also learn to conduct vehicle searching and pass these proficiencies onto your team.

The course is delivered using e-learning meaning you can study in your own time and at your own pace, with the support of a dedicated tutor.


This qualification develops the learner’s knowledge and understanding required for managing a security team and directly applying legislation into working practice. This qualification will support a role in the workplace, specifically an operational environment.
