    Steve,

    Have a look at Security Chauffeur College they do;
    BTEC lv3 ROSPA
    BTEC Lv3 Security Advance Chauffeur course, may also be able to point you in the right direction for a suitable CP course.

    I have personally attended these courses and would highly recommend them. I'm sure they are still the only accredited course of its kind in the UK.

    Regards

    John

    It might be noted that many companies won't employ people in a driving role if they're under 25 because of the extra insurance costs.

    Hi Steve2900,

    The Security Chauffeur College is the only internationally accredited security driving qualification recognised in over 80 countries.

    The course can offer 2 x BTEC Level 3 Advanced Awards

    Module 1 = BTEC Level 3 Advanced Award in Advanced Driving
    Module 2 = BTEC Level 3 Advanced Award in Security Chauffeuring

    I am the only training establishment who can offer both!

    As background information: BTEC Level 3 in Advanced Driving is from RoSPA;

    1) You have to attend training
    2) You have to pay 48 test & membership fee
    3) You have to wait 4-6 weeks for RoSPA to complete your paperwork
    4) Then you can pay a further 90 for your BTEC Level 3 in Advanced Driving, from RoSPA.

    ANY training provider who offers you this qualification – is not the Edexcel Approved Centre to issue these certificates.

    RoSPA test is advanced defensive driving, and only the foundations of security driving.

    The Security Chauffeur College is the ONLY accredited Security Driving Qualification – written, accredited, licensed and delivered by US!

    Its your money, do your home work and spend your money wisely!

    Well SCC,

    Sounds like your course should be attended as an obligatory process for A CP license.

    I would certainly back it.

    Rich,

    As you and I both know, its not always that simple.

    The serious professionals are starting to realise how appropriate continual professional development really is, however it is always at a personal cost.

    The other issue is training, I don't want the security driver training environment to become flooded with inadequate training providers who simply jump on the cash cow band wagon with no interest in professional standards, only financial gain.

    Knowing that large security companies have approached Edexcel to teach my syllabus, and then attempting to write a similar syllabus and gain accreditation, however not through Edexcel as they won't entertain another driving BTEC.

    I know of individuals and training providers who have approached former students for my course notes which, EVERY students gets to keep, with the sole aim to simply try to COPY my syllabus.

    My desire is to become the industry standard, very similar to Exmed in the Medical sector, however look at everyman and their dog now trying to get a MIRA course accredited in competition. Now I'm not suggesting for one minute that I don't want competition, my conquest since 2006 when I paid 5000 for my instructor course, which was superb, however unaccredited, has motivated me to pursue accreditation for an appropriate level qualification which recognises the significant subject matter which is role specific.

    I'm happy to discuss the potential anytime Rich.

    Kindest Regards

    Jon
