We have established a dedicated security guard training centre based in Manchester focused on providing a route to the workplace via professional qualification in the security industry.
In-house training is provided by our experienced management to meet the requirements of front-line Security Industry Authority (SIA) licensing. Training is provided in the following topics:

Our unique security guard training programmes are led by two friendly and experienced staff, who will personally guide and support candidates through the complete process from start to finish. This approach is designed to cater for those with anxiety and/or mental health issues. Training is always tailored to suit the individual and additional measures can be put in place for trainees with special needs and/or learning difficulties.
To qualify for the security training at CPS regulated by the SIA, candidates must:
We run ‘pre-training’ careers days to help interested individuals decide whether a career in the security industry will suit them.
This provides a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into the requirements of the training and assessment, and understand the support available from CPS.

Sait was under the homeless provisions of Wigan Council when he connected with our team and we offered to sponsor his training as a security guard.
He has now completed his full 7 days training towards achieving his SIA license. As part of his sponsorship, CPS staff assisted him to open a SIA (Security Industry Authority) online account enabling him to apply for his SIA Door Supervisor license and paid the £190 fee to complete his application.
Darren Pendleton has personally supported Sait throughout his course and exams. Sait’s journey was not straightforward, and he didn’t achieve a high enough score at his first attempt at the paper exam. Sait was understandably devastated but Darren offered encouragement and sat down with him to see where he’d gone wrong. Additional training was provided and Sait was booked in for re-sits. Sait sat exams 3 times in total and eventually achieved an amazing 98% on his final attempt.
