Staff, Training and Licensing

As of 20th March 06 it is illegal to work as a security guard without a SIA licence.

We as a company fully support the licensing of all private security personnel. And to this end have invested heavily in the appropriate training courses to make sure all Rapier personnel are fully trained and licensed to comply with Government legislation.

The required training carried out to gain a licence is in addition to our own company induction training which consists of a minimum of 36 hours spread over a 4 day period. This consists of two consecutive classroom days and two days on site training.

All current security officers employed by Rapier Security Services have undergone a four day Security Industry Association approved training course carried out by the Open College Network and have all achieved the necessary qualification which is level two award in Security Guarding (static and patrol).

All of our personnel are all now fully trained and licensed or waiting for their licence to be processed.

The security officers employed to look after your premises are fully uniformed in the standard Rapier Security Uniform which comprises of; Dark blue trousers x2, white shirt x3, black tie x2, dark blue jumper x2 and top coat and where necessary, peaked cap and high visibility top coat.

This is the standard rapier security uniform but this can be fully adapted to your needs or to blend in with your own workforce.
