    K-9 Body Armour, do you kit your dog out with it?

    Whilst a dog may not have substantiated and recognised Rights in Law per se...it is protected in law .....and amongst man's many rights, there is no clause giving him the right to harm them..in fact there are many Laws /Acts etc internationally that deal with such matters. These are just the...

    K-9 Body Armour, do you kit your dog out with it?

    Fact: Only if worn' ....I can't speak for others but I am very familiar with "aes69's" working / police dog experience & credentials having worked & trained with him. If handlers can't see the pro's outweighing the con's then this is just another bit of shiny kit to be issued and then...

    RFX Initial

    As someone who has spent 20+ years in Air Transport Security I'd advise you to turn up for the course with a new pen, an open mind and a good attitude..nothing else is required! The DofT course is pretty in depth and any attempt to pre-read on the subject will probably cloud matters for you...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    I would concur with SCT, I think thats an appropriate manner with which to approach such an undertaking, as mentioned it would be all to easy to muddy the waters so to speak at such an early stage and the risk of personal agendas being included has to be ruled out before proceeding.. To all...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    People laughed at Erik Prince's vision of his little Training Facility in the backwoods where the nations finest knock knock teams and snake eaters would pay him lots of money to have the best training available.. but he built it and they came.. I guess he had the last laugh there! When...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    I'd like to congratulate Mick for initiating one of the best threads I've read in a long time.. it seems people really do feel strongly about this subject and the healthy, lively yet mutually respectful debate it has initiated is refreshing to read. Its been a while since I've felt the need to...

    SAS (R) or SBS (R)

    Main difference being, that nice helpful DS who screams you back into an upright position when all you want to do is disappear up your own bawbag will not be there to encourage you to continue. Motivation on selection is down to no one other than yourself. Normally you won't receive a single...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    ........oky doky, surely I'm not alone in sitting here now thinking "...okay then..so how does one go about becoming / registering as an Official Awarding Body because surely as far as self regulating our industry goes a group of peer elected SME's operating (non-profit, ie..other than...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    Mick, I sincerely hope I am wrong and that you are still in business and thriving in 12 mths time as the only way this industry will improve is by TP's like yourself raising standards, making a stand and refusing to play these stupid Cash Cow games..those who really wish to be the best they can...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    .....and there we have it in a nutshell, it would seem that if a TP wishes to have their latest state of the art all singing, all dancing course its just a matter of finding an Awarding Body willing to Endorse them.. I imagine the process is along the lines of... Caller: Hi...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    Surely its time for an awarding body that are actually a real time authority on the industry. Who employ SME's with relevant knowledge & experience , who get out from behind their desks, visit the TP's, assess the course & instructional staff at the coal face! If you don't know what course...

    Training "certification" and "awards"

    Ok....I'll stick my head over the parapet & offer an opinion... In my humble opinion as a TP in this sector you will be bankrupt in 12 months! I'll explain why if I may... Honesty...it would appear that you have it! Integrity..see above Common Sense...again see above! ...oh and a Moral...

    What's the betting his Resettlement Grant is more than I got & he gets an SIA approved Q' out of it... Probably go on to be a TP in Maritime, showing SSO's & PFSO's all the in house trickery & dark arts! Bollox to it....where do I sign?

    Are some companies serious about the hourly rate they offer?

    This thread & others on here have just reinforced to me that pulling the pin on the UK was the right thing to do.. We still have the problem of jacket fillers & barely able to converse in English staff but at least the pay is reasonable.. Static Security start @ around AU$19/hr DS/Crowd...
