Our 4 day Enhanced Security Officer training package has been designed to provide organisations the opportunity for their security officers to be taught a wide range of enhanced security skills that will then differentiate them within the industry from a standard Level 2 qualified Security Officer.

Our proven syllabus is designed to build on existing knowledge and develop individual and team skills and ability to operate effectively when conducting routine duties or dealing with complex developing security situations.

On successful completion of the ESO course, delegates will gain the following qualifications:

  • QNUK Level 3 Award for Enhanced Security Officers (RQF) (G4S)
  • QNUK Level 3 Award In Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF)
  • QNUK Level 2 Award in Behavioural Detection Analysis (G4S) (RQF)
