Security Management Course

Security Management Diploma Course

Thieves. Terrorists. VIPs. Celebrities...

Work in the security industry, and you’ll never have a dull day.

  • You could be on night patrol, in the darkest corners of a deserted warehouse.

  • You might be escorting a famous pop star to her concert.

  • Or you could be managing your own security firm, providing door supervisors to a chain of pubs?

The security industry is amazingly varied. And it’s crying out for good people. Someone like you, perhaps?

Want a life of action?

Do you have what it takes, to face down bullies, and protect the public?

Do you have nerves strong enough to face a gang of youths? Deal with a package that might be a bomb? Or calm a lost child?

Every day people in the security industry face immense challenges with calm determination.

And the best way to achieve that is with a qualification from the Blackford Centre. Our Diploma in Security Management lets you study online at home, and there's a printed edition that comes to your door. There's no pressure – and we give you lots of support.

Look at a door supervisor next time you’re at a pub. See how they act with measured dignity.

The public appreciate them, because a security officer is often their only protection against the low life that steal from people and physically hurt them.

At a time when there are few police officers on the beat, security people are all that stops the breakdown of law and order. They are the unsung heroes.

And this could be your life.

There are many routes into the profession, each with its own challenges.

But what’s the best way in?

The Blackford Centre offers an accredited Diploma course in Security Management.

It reveals all you need to know about the security industry. It contains “insider” advice that you won’t find elsewhere. And it’s written by hardnosed experts who don’t use fancy words or spout airy-fairy nonsense.

Our course results from years of experience in the front line, distilled into practical and down-to- earth training. We know what works, and what could get you into trouble. And you’ll have a handpicked tutor, an expert who works in the security industry and who now wants to help others. As professionals ourselves, we only work with pros, not college lecturers with armchair opinions.

So, if you want to get into the security industry, and maybe run your own business, we recommend you enrol on our Blackford Centre courses. Maybe you’re retiring from the police force or armed services? Perhaps you’re a young person attracted to a life that promises action? Either way, the security industry is a great place to work.

Our guarantee

But we also offer a guarantee: if you don't like the course (for any reason), just email us to cancel at any time within 60 days of receiving your pack, and we'll refund your course fees.

Why do we give this refund? Because we don't like to part on bad terms (life's too short). And we'd prefer you to say nice things about us.

But, you ask, does anyone actually claim a refund? Absolutely! Around five per cent of our students ask for their money back each month. And we're happy to pay them, because we know that the best course in the world won't suit every single person.
