Why train door supervisors?
Door supervisors play a crucial role in the security industry. Their role is to provide responsible security and protection by screening the suitability of persons entering licensed premises. They may aso deal with conflicts in licensed public premises such as pubs and nightclubs.
By training door supervisors, you’ll be teaching them how to deal with different situations responsibly and safely. Your guidance could help save lives should your learners find themselves dealing with a dangerous situation. It is therefore important that trainers are qualified to a high standard.
