Training and Development

The Showsec Training department offers a unique blend of credible event security experience and educational partnerships. Showsec provide training that ranges from entry-level skills to management degrees.

Showsec is committed to continuous improvement and professional development in both the workforce and our team of trainers. Combining ongoing experience in operations and personalised mentoring ensures excellence in delivery.

Entry Level Training – Event Safety Steward and SIA Door Supervisor

Comprehensive induction training is provided to all Stewards and SIA Door Supervisors prior to commencing work. An online role specific training session with scenario-based activities delivered by experienced trainers coupled with series of engaging eLearning courses will prepare new starters for their first shift. Content within these training elements covers but is not limited to; Showsec brand and ethics, roles and responsibilities and on-the-job scenario decision making activities.

Where appropriate all training is mapped against and supersedes industry standards. Utilising qualification specifications, government legislation and inhouse and external subject matter experts, Showsec training is compliant and delivered in a robust engaging manner.

Working as an SIA Door Supervisor opens more opportunities to work a wider variety of roles as well as a higher pay rate. To work any SIA Door Supervisor shifts you must hold a valid Door Supervisor license.

Practical Training Courses

Empowering and enriching workers with new skills and knowledge is crucial in setting the benchmark as industry leaders. Some of the training courses offered include:

  •  Enhanced Customer Service and Conflict Awareness
  • Working in the Front of Stage Pit Barrier Operation (Accredited)
  • Search and Response

Combining the flexibility of virtual and classroom courses we focus on optimising and maximising the learning time with interactive activities and applying the learning in simulated situations.

Progression opportunities – Event Supervisor and Head of Security

Showsec are advocates for progression and further development. You can work towards becoming an Event Supervisor and work closely with your Operations Team and Area Manager to support you through the process. A competency assessment will be completed for your current role and an interview will be conducted. If successful, the last step would be undertaking a two-day Supervisor course with our leading Senior Trainer.

The application process follows that of an Event Supervisor, completing a two-day Head Of Security Course. This position will allow you to make a difference in the venues in your area of work, including working closely with headline acts, international events and major clients.

Again, these courses are mapped against key industry qualification specifications and includes a series of examinations, scenario-based activities and engaged learning.
