What is In-House Security Induction (IHSI)?


In-House Security Induction provides candidates with workplace specific training, to complement statutory training requirements. The Security Industry Authority (SIA) recommend that every person working in the security industry should receive workplace specific training in addition to statutory licensing requirements.


The course focuses on security procedures and systems specific to the workplace in which candidates are employed and goes beyond that required for the National Certificate for Door Supervisors (NCDS) course and syllabus.


The course is suitable for clients who employ security staff or door supervisors in-house rather than contracting-out and who want to benefit from the cost reductions and greater control this approach can offer.


Our In-House Security Induction course is also suitable for premises currently running under a club premises certificate who are taking advantage of the exemption which allows them to employ un-licensed security staff. This 'loophole' does not exempt them from providing effective fit-for-purpose training.


For more details please see our In-House Security Induction Course Overview page.


Who should attend this course?


The In-House Security Induction course is designed to provide premises specific training to employees working as stewards, security personnel or door supervisors.


The course is also ideal to familiarise employees in other areas of your business with security systems, including; bar staff, bar supervisors, managers, stewards, fire marshals, box office staff and cloakroom staff. Adopting this approach creates much greater awareness of the issues faced by security staff, allows your whole team to play an active role in securing you business and reduces security related cost in the longer term.
