Door supervisor or security guard?
In our opinion the door supervisor qualification is better and is good value for money that you spend. A door supervisor can do all the work that a normal security guard can do, but in addition to that he can also work in licensed premises, which include where alcohol is dealt with. Thus if you intend to join the security industry then we recommend that you do the sia door supervisor course rather than the security guard course. After all there would only be a difference of say 30 pounds, and yet the sia badge cost is the same. So think what is a wiser action.
