New security industry training regulations

September 2012 News

The industry still has no clarity on when the new outcome and unit standard based security regulations will be legislated. This has now been going on since the draft regulations were published in the government gazette in October of 2009.

So much then for implementing skills development training in the private security industry. In the meantime, SIRA still conducts grade training, which is not unit standard based and inferior trained security officers are still being put into the industry.

It is really a sad state of affairs and shows a lack of interest to introduce quality training into the industry as a whole through legislation. I wonder if the Minister of Police, under whom SIRA report and the Minister of Higher Education, responsible for skills development training, are aware of this?
