The difference between Security Guarding and Door Supervision
It is important to understand the difference between a the Security Officer and the Door Supervisor training course. Security Officers cannot work as Door Supervisors. However, Door Supervisors can work as Security Officers.
The first 3 units of both these qualifications are the same but on the Door Supervisors course you will learn an additional unit (Physical Intervention). This additional unit allows them to work in more roles whilst also enabling them for Security Guarding roles.
We strongly recommend to all who are considering the Security Officer training course that they consider the Level 2 Award for Working as a Door Supervisor within the Private Security Industry course instead. Qualified Door Supervisors can legally work in all the same roles as Security Guards. In addition, they can also work in licensed premises such as bars, clubs, events and festivals, which Security Officers may not be able to work in if alcohol is being served. A Door Supervisor qualification will enable candidates to perform a far wider variety of roles and will greatly increase their chances of finding employment.
