BSIA launches official Training Providers’ Section

Trevor Elliott - BSIA Director of Manpower and Membership Services

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) is delighted to announce the creation of a brand new section of membership exclusively for companies providing quality training to security industry personnel.

This move follows the original creation of a Training Providers’ working group in April this year, which brought together several companies that supply training services to the security industry in the UK. Following a successful seven months setting objectives and increasing membership, the Association has recognised the growing importance of this group by creating an official section of membership.

Paul Tennent, Chairman of the Training Providers Section, comments: “The continued success of our industry relies upon all of its personnel receiving consistent levels of high-quality training. The Training Providers’ Group was originally established in recognition of the fact that this is not always the case, and we are delighted that the group has now become an official section of BSIA membership.”

Trevor Elliott, Director of Manpower and Membership Services at the BSIA, added: “The Training Providers’ Section is extremely ambitious in its objectives and is committed to working with fellow training providers, colleges, security companies, trade organisations and the Government to drive standards, increase professionalism and ultimately improve the standard of training offered in the security industry.

Companies wishing to find out more about joining the section can contact Daren Wood, Membership Manager at the BSIA, by emailing
