    It depends what your lookingg for mate and in what areas you want to work and ofcourse your background. My aadvice would be do your own research then ask about a bit, it's your money your going to be dishing out so think wisely and dont do something just because some one else advises it. What I will sy howeve is give brummie at regal (rst) a call and he will give you some straight down the line non biased advice.
    Good luck in your search and future career.

    They are all the best. Nealy all companies will 'sort you out' and all have ex-this and that instructors.

    Like the man above me said, you need to think about the type of work you want to do. You also need to ask about outside of this forum because sharing bad opinions of companies is not permissable due to the legalities.

    Just some pointers:

    - Everyone will tell you the course they did was excellent. Except they've only done one course in most cases... So just how they know it was excellent with nothing by which to compare I don't understand.

    - Cheap is not best.

    - A 100% pass rate is not a boast

    - No work is guaranteed. Most companies will 'only employ those we train' which is in most cases, completey untrue.

    - Sticking EXACTLY to the SIA requirements and nothing is basically saying that they are giving you LESS than any decent training provider will

    - 150 hours is 150 hours, minus lunch, dinner and breaks. It also does not include stagging on at death o'clock in the morning. 150 hours of guided learning is in the presence of an instructor, using the time to guide & teach. If your course includes First Aid at work, that means your looking at 174 hours.


    Good luck!

    Hi mate, I haven't done courses with any of these providers but going with what employers have told me and looking at threads on here, a few names for you to get in touch with. Morrigans, Longmoor, Praetorian and the above mentioned Regal. I would like to make it clear that I am not recommending any of these courses above any others, just a couple of people for you to get in touch with.

    Do research as mentioned above weigh up all your options, cost of course, cost of accommodation, HECPO? it's not cheap when your not guarenteed a job at the end of it. Good hunting

    Cheers

    We appreciate the mention Charlie85 but i need to make it clear that Regal Security Training conduct all of the SIA compliant CP training for us as partners and with our assistance etc. We (Morrigans) conduct a variety of other training courses for the security industry and individuals such as:

    Firearms
    HECPO/PSD
    Advanced driving
    Surveillance
    and others

    Just so there is no confusion

    Best regards

    I personally would reccomend you look at ronin concepts ltd (Hereford) run by ex Blades,well looked after,1st week medical training and obtain qualification,last week you go to Czech republic for live firearms training as well as vehicles drill xyz.

    Vast majority of infantry who are leaving do this course.

    Have a look mate; nothing ventured nothing gained

    all the best
