It is worth going the extra training, because thanks to employee increases his knowledge.

I agreed to your point #aries2015. It is up to the individual to improve develop and maintain there own competency standards and quality of service. But training and licensing added value to them. It is better to get training and license to be a professionals.

hi

Training and gaining a Security license is nothing more then a introduction into the Security Industry.

It is working in the field that actually gives you a realistic idea or a hands on experience to determine, if you are suited to this field or do you need to change to another one.

Some people are best suited to specific fields as they may not have the specific qualities required in other fields to cope or succeed.

There will always be work in the Security industry, but i believe it is up to the individual to improve develop and maintain there own competency standards and quality of service.

cheers

I felt that the level of training was sufficient to equip me for security guard job but perfection always comes after experience. Anybody can be perfect after handling the real time situation at field when responsibility would be delegated.

Sorry to be the optimist but i believe that almost all industries are the same and we should just deal with these things .... to be sufficiently qualified it would probably take years and you would need some type of Apprenticeship or mentoring from long term Workers ..... maybe eventually they will find a certain level of aptitude before letting people into the industry.

was not satisfied with the training, it basicly is pay the money site there for the 7--10 days get your cert then apply for licences
its the same for the RSA RCG OH&S list goes on its all a sham money for nothing for these RTO, and some wanker pubb sitting in his ivory tower trying to justify his job and pay level, i sat next to this Indian bloke who was iliterate, he was an Aussie Indian at that but had worked all his life on the family farm, he passed because he was able to do his exam verbally how does he write an incident report or keep abreast of any changes in the law or read SOPs, this bloke worked for about 2months in security then once the Xmas period was over he could not get work

Training is basically a joke.

You learn from experience, that's where all my knowledge comes from (also learning from the web, SIR, police websites etc)

Guards with more experience than you are always good to annoy for stories about situations and how they handled them, so you can either learn to handle similar situations or learn from their mistakes.
