Security Management Course

Thieves. Terrorists. VIPs. Celebrities...

Work in the security industry, and you’ll never have a dull day.

  • You could be on night patrol, in the darkest corners of a deserted warehouse.

  • You might be escorting a famous pop star to her concert.

  • Or you could be managing your own security firm, providing door supervisors to a chain of pubs?

The security industry is amazingly varied. And it’s crying out for good people. Someone like you, perhaps?

Want a life of action?

Do you have what it takes, to face down bullies, and protect the public?

Do you have nerves strong enough to face a gang of youths? Deal with a package that might be a bomb? Or calm a lost child?

Every day people in the security industry face immense challenges with calm determination.

Look at a door supervisor next time you’re at a pub. See how they act with measured dignity.

The public appreciate them, because a security officer is often their only protection against the low life that steal from people and physically hurt them.

At a time when there are few police officers on the beat, security people are all that stops the breakdown of law and order. They are the unsung heroes.

And this could be your life.

There are many routes into the profession, each with its own challenges.

But what’s the best way in?

The Blackford Centre offers two specialist courses, both accredited.

They reveal all you need to know about the security industry. They contain ‘insider’ advice that you won’t find elsewhere.

And they’re written by hard nosed experts who don’t use fancy words or spout airy-fairy nonsense.

Our courses result from years of experience in the front line, distilled into practical and down-to-earth training.

We know what works, and what could get you into trouble.

And you’ll have a hand picked tutor – an expert who works in the security industry and who now wants to help others. As professionals ourselves, we only work with pros – not college lecturers with armchair opinions.

So, if you want to get into the security industry, and maybe run your own business, we recommend you enrol on one of the Blackford Centre courses.

Maybe you’re retiring from the police force or armed services? Perhaps you’re a young person attracted to a life that promises action? Either way, the security industry is a great place to work.
