Why was the need felt for the door supervisor upskilling course?

In 2010 the old door supervisor qualification changed and two new modules were added in the new QCF door supervision training namely working in private security industry and physical intervention skills for the private security industry. Door supervisors with the old qualification lacked the necessary knowledge, thus a need was felt that they should be equipped with the relevant skills and knowledge. Now all door supervisors renewing their licenses for door supervision would be required to do an additional one days training.D

This qualification is for all those door supervisors who have a door supervisor qualification as well as a license; however, their door supervisor license or qualification is before October 2010. The reason for this new qualification is felt by SIA due to the fact that the previous door supervisor qualification did not have the physical intervention module, whereas the new door supervisor qualification comprises of this module.

This is a two-day qualification in which you would be required to complete a workbook given by your tutor and then on the given day come and attend the physical intervention module. After that, you would be assessed by your tutor using various assessment methods.

The physical intervention module teaches the learner about the use of force, terms as a rational, proportionate and justifiable force. Approved techniques are taught to the learners which can be used in certain situations. However, you must remember that use of force may only be resorted as a last resort, at the end you would be required to justify your actions. The techniques taught in the PI module are non-pain compliant techniques having a combination of both restrictive as well as non-restrictive techniques.
