Professional Security Supervisor

Professional Security Supervisor course will provide security operatives, officers and managers with the fundamentals of conducting effective security operations.

It will address a wide variety of topics to enable all participants to understand and practice the skills required to carry out day-to-day security functions.

The participant will gain practical skills and techniques that can be implemented immediately back into the workplace.

Professional Security Supervisor course teaches security officers and students to be more efficient and well-rounded security professionals, covering everything from how to work with today’s generation security employees to the latest advances in the security industry.

This training progresses logically from the foundations of security to the basics of supervision before delving more deeply into topics of human resource management, security-related business functions, technology in security, emergency management and investigations, and concluding with explorations into current issues in safety.

Moreover, we will review the risk assessment of a venue. The planned-for evacuation times from the space will be very different from what happens in reality – rather than everyone leaving the area at the same time immediately.

Security Supervision and Management fulfills the training needs of both aspiring and experienced protection professional who want to move into supervisory or managerial positions.

It is also the only text needed to prepare for the Certified in Security Supervision and Management (CSSM) designation offered by the International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO).

Learn how to manage and supervise security guards effectively.
