With the threat level in the UK being upgraded from ‘substantial’ to ‘severe’, it is essential that businesses have mitigation measures in place to reduce the risk to themselves, their employees, and their customers. CPNI advise that by remaining vigilant, being security minded and having good security measures in place, which requires only a small investment, it will help to protect businesses against crime and acts of terrorists.
However, the new Government ‘Protect Duty’ will establish criteria and require owners and operators of public spaces and venues to put in place measures to keep the public safe from a terrorist attack.
Westminster can provide full support to ensure you implement proportionate procedures to mitigate all risks and allow your business to offer a safer environment to the public and staff.
It is essential that individuals working in the private security industry undergo structured training that results in a recognised qualification and ensures they are competent to work in the private security sector.
To apply for an SIA licence, all individuals must prove that they are properly qualified to do their job. If they don’t hold one of the SIA-endorsed qualifications, then their licence application will be refused.
Westminster can provide endorsed training delivered by highly experienced trainers to ensure you are fully trained to support your SIA licence application.
We believe that our training will provide you with the skills and confidence you need to become a capable SIA licence holder and improve your chances of employment in the private security industry.
As well as SIA training, Westminster and Keyguard also offer guarding training for National Infrastructure, Tourist attractions, Corporate, and Events. We can provide each of these training courses separately or as part of a bespoke package, ensuring that you have all the necessary qualifications to perform your job well.
