Are you looking to change your career?
The aim of this programme is to enable the learner to develop the relevant knowledge, skills and competence to work under supervision in the private security industry as a static Security Officer and a Door Security Person (DSP), or to progress to further education and or training or employment. This QQI Level 4 course is the minimum standard required to apply for a Security Guarding or Door Security Licence from the PSA (Private Security Authority).
In the last two years the rate of pay for a newly trained Security Officer has increased from €10.75 to €11.35 in 2018 and 11.65 in June 2019
Door Security companies pay from €12.00 – €15.00 per hour. An experienced corporate security officer can now command €15.00 – €20.00 per hour. The larger security companies also offer life assurance, workplace pensions, group health schemes and pay Sunday and Bank Holiday premium rates.
In this growing economy there is a constant shortage of security officers with some companies now running “Open Days” where trained security officers can walk in for interview. The only requirement being that you have completed the QQI Level 4 training course and you hold a valid PSA (Private Security Authority) Licence.
