 Day 4 – Conflict Management

Day four of the course combines practical with theory as candidates are taught the theories that underpin conflict management and why it is a key tool in any door supervisor’s arsenal. You will be taught de-escalation and how to defuse situations using positive communication. This is then enacted through scenarios based on real-life situations our trainers have faced themselves, to provide an insight into what it is like to work frontline as a door supervisor.

 Day 5 – Assessment Day

The term ‘assessment day’ may sound daunting, but it is nothing to worry about, our trainers will make sure you are ready and confident before you sit any assessments. The assessments are for the previous three days, which include a mixture of multiple-choice exams, filmed assessments on searching, the use of communication devices and conflict management and a written assessment in which you will be writing an incident report. FGH is an inclusive training provider and adept at making reasonable adjustments for students with additional learning needs.

 Day 6 – Physical Intervention

Students will learn to apply practical physical intervention skills by our expert trainers, who will guide them through the techniques, with plenty of practice with your course mates until you are confident in your ability to utilise what you have learned.

 Day 7 – Physical Intervention & Assessments

The final day of the SIA Course in London continues with learning higher-level physical intervention techniques before practice utilising them synchronously with your conflict management skills in more real-life scenarios. This will then be recorded for the examining body to evidence the competency of your physical intervention skills.
