Sia -door SurpervisorWhy choose APEX Consultancy and Training?

Here at APEX Consultancy and Training we have been involved with Training Security Staff and Door Supervisors in particular since the late 1980s.Over the past 20 years we have trained staff across locations throughout England, Scotland and Wales. It is this depth of experience that we believe makes our Door Supervisor courses second to none. Since the launch of the SIA we have trained over 6,000 Door Supervisors. Our training does not focus purely on classroom based learning but rather prepares individuals for the very real pressures of Door Supervision. Our aim is to produce candidates who have genuine sector competence rather than just helping them pass the test. On successful completion of the course candidates can apply for an SIA License directly from the SIA and guidance on this process is given on all our courses
