Bright Direction Training hosted a visit from the SIA

From l-r Aiden Murphy, Steve McCormick, Executive Director Operations and Standards, SIA, Mark Burtonwood, Deputy Director, SIA and Jamie MacGregor.

At the end of July, Bright Direction Training hosted a visit from the Executive Director and Deputy Director of the Security Industry Authority (SIA). We had a very productive meeting and we were very privileged to have some of their time.

This organisation is in place to deliver regulation to the private security industry, its primary aims are to ensure public safety and that security staff have the correct skills and training to perform effectively and meet their full potential.

They recognise that training companies play a key role in the protection of the public with private security. Continuous professional development is critical in their view and that is where Bright Direction Training comes in. We are recognised by the SIA and feature heavily in their plans for the future.

“Bright Direction Training is testament to your clear, obvious and passionate principles of putting the individual you are looking to support at the centre of everything you do”

 Mark Burtonwood – Deputy Director SIA.

Later this year, the SIA are hosting a series of events across the UK for approved contractors to attend. Bright Direction Training have been invited to speak at these events to the members of around 200 companies. In addition, we have been asked to provide input to the executive as they feel, as do we, that the people attending the courses are the priority and it is with this focus that together we will improve the SIA licence courses.

Working closely with the SIA, Bright Direction Training will improve the quality of the courses for all attendees, increasing the future employment chances of participants.

The course that Bright Direction Training offers is delivered by approved and accredited trainers only. Delivered over 3 weeks, this course provides learners with everything that they require to apply for the SIA licence.
