Door Supervisors course

Where: Mercury Training Services Ltd

What: 5 Day SIA Door Supervisors Course £195 (Booked online with Hotcourses)

by Joanna - August 2014

I went on this course already owning a security license and working in the industry for a number of years. On this course I learned a lot more than on the course I did eight years ago (different training company). The tutor shared his experience and knowledge understandable for everyone. He was happy to answer all questions and making sure that everyone understood the topic. Even myself already working in the industry there were a lot of things new to me,like ways of dealing with difficult people, so obvious but usually overlooked. I had to go to work straight after the last day of the course so the same night I could try what I learned when dealing with two fighting women and soem other people, I was very happy with the result and so were they. I will definitely recommend this training company to everyone interested in a course.
